My Bread Cloche

November 13:

Today was a little bit of a lazy, blustery autumn day.

The cheese is out of the press and drying nicely

The cheese is Jack, made from a recipe from the New England Cheese company. It will dry, be waxed and age for a few weeks. It should be ready for Christmas.


This bread cloche from Sassafrass is listed for over $30.00 on line. We found it at the local thrift for only $7.99. Even better, I was able to use a store credit that I had from some jeans that i had returned earlier. It’s a little discolored, but I think that is just from use.

Another great thrift store find

This little butter dish was just too precious to pass on. I’ve started collecting hand-thrown jugs, bottles and dishes. They lend such a warm and cozy feel to our home and serve so many purposes.

The bread came out beautifully

The Kefir and Coconut Milk Bread is great, maybe a little big, but it tastes wonderful.

This goes into the bread machine

  • 350ml kefir milk
  • 100ml coconut milk
  • 2 t salt
  • 4 T sugar
  • 2 T butter

Followed by 750g of bread flour and 1 T dry yeast
I set the machine on dough and let it go before turning it out into a linen cloth in a basket to rise. I pre-heated the cloche to 450 degrees, turned the dough out into it, covered and baked for 15 minutes. I then lowered the temperature to 400 degrees for 25 minutes (covered) and 5 mintues (uncovered).
