When you live in South Africa or any braai loving country there is one thing that any braai needs. The beer bread.
It’s so easy, anyone can make it perfectly.
I love making bread at home. It smells great, taste fantastic, and how much better is freshly baked bread straight out of the oven with a thick smear of coconut butter melting into it?
This was also a far more common occurrence pre-baby. The problem I have with this is that I don’t particularly care for shop bought bread and as a chef I shouldn’t really have an excuse. I know the short cuts and the tricks to make something quickly and (mostly) painlessly. But somehow in-between teething and living like a single parent while S was in and out of the country all the time, it just didn’t happen.
I’m very happy to be rediscovering my cooking mojo.
