I used an easy recipe from A Girl Called Jack (she's a budget food blogger here in the UK, who lived on the very edge of extreme poverty for a while and now publishes healthy but very cheap recipes to help people in similar situations) to make some surprisingly nice garlic, lemon and herb bread that uses plain flour instead of anything specialist. I assume I'm allowed to link to the recipe! Here it is: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodandd...s-35p-garlic-lemon-and-herb-bread-recipe.html

Does anyone else have any similar really simple bread recipes like this? Would love to hear them!

I'm usually not a huge fan of lemon or other citrus in bread recipes, but this one actually sounds really tasty. One of my favourite bread recipes uses caramelized onions and rosemary. The smell you get when it's in the over is just incredible.

You can't really taste the lemon - apparently it's a necessary ingredient to strengthen the gluten. (says the recipe!) The bread was delicious, next time I'd use fresh herbs (I just used the dried ones in my cupboard) to give it a stronger flavour :) Could you post a link to the caramelised onions bread recipe? It sounds amazing.

I'd like to make it but I'm not a big fan of garlic. Is it possible to make it without it? Or to add something else instead of garlic to make it taste better?

Wow! This is so great! I believe that garlic and herbs are perfect with bread. I will definitely try this if I can. Lemon is a weird ingredient in bread, but at least it serves a purpose in the recipe.

This is a really good example of how hardships bring out the genius in each of us.

I have got to try this sometime! Right now, I have some plain white bread rising, but sometime in the future I will probably make it.

I would recommend that you avoid cake flour for breads, except for Southern raised biscuits. I tried my favorite White Lilly all-purpose for Sally Lunn bread once and was rather disappointed. They do make a different flour for bread. Cake Flours do not have very much gluten.

Well this sounds totally tasty. That girl's idea is really good, she shares her past experiences so anyone who goes through same things might take notice from what he did. In the end I believe that this is what baking should be about, we should all help ourselves (not only in the kitchen) and share our experiences with each other. Only this way we can keep moving forward.
