My first bread, ‘The Grant Loaf’.

Homemade breads are very delicious.

My mother always bakes all kinds of tasty breads like olive bread, cinnamon loaf, Pan Mistura, naan, pita, cornbread and others.

I have always wanted to bake something too, just like my mother and my big sisters.

Finally, on December 18, 2012, I baked my first bread with a little help from my mother.

I was so happy when my mother told me that she was going to teach me how to bake a bread.

It was a wholewheat bread named, The Grant Loaf.

The recipe was from a recipe book given to my big sisters and I by my late great grandfather, named ‘Cooking With Kids’.

First I have to wash my hands with soap and water.

After mixing the ingredients, I kneaded the dough and the dough stuck to my fingers 🙂

It was fun!

After that, we let the dough rest until it rose twice of its size. 

The dough rose up beautifully.

Then my mother helped me to put the bread in the oven.

My bread is now inside the oven.

It was so delicious and it is a healthy bread because it uses wholewheat flour instead of white flour.

I am so proud of my first bread.
