    This recipe comes only a few days after I noticed this bread rolled in a napkin on the plate of Mr Wood, the carpenter, while watching A Day in the Life. I too had noted the inconsistencies between the video and the directions when I began to make the bread video clearly shows the milk and water being heated half of the flour added makes a pancake batter also the egg, one whole or 2 yolks? Probably doesn t make a difference but is confusing. It is also important to be aware of the different yeasts that are available some you add to liquid, some to the dry ingredients first. A little beer replacing some of the water does add a nice hint of the original yeast flavor.
