On Saturday I felt like baking some yeast bread. Working with yeast dough is one of my favorite things to do. I don’t bake yeast breads very often though, because EATING home baked yeast bread is also one of my favorite things to do! I decided to try a new recipe. This recipe for Birdseed Bread is probably the best bread I’ve ever made. It was soft and full of texture. It had seeds and whole grains and was just absolutely fantastic! It did NOT last long in this family, that is for sure! I hope you enjoy this video, and I hope you give Birdseed Bread a try. You’ll love it, I am sure!
