He has made bread in the bread machine before and made buns and bannock but I can't recall him making yeast bread completely on his own with no help before. Off he went and sometime later he brought E and I a slice to sample. It was really delicious! And since we have a rule about not complaining about something someone else cooks (which is mostly followed) I didn't even say anything about the fact that he used the white flour usually reserved for pizza dough.
Happily for an ever-hungry teenage boy the recipe made enough for two loaves so he has a whole loaf left...I expect it will last for another hour or so.
