Summer is the principal time during which I can refine my baking skills, as hectic school schedules don't permit me to perfume the house with the aroma of freshly baked goods, a much needed aroma that has the potential to calm my nerves before the exams.
In the summer of 2010, one of the things I focused on was making bread from scratch, a notion that used to send chills down my spine. I had heard of the horror stories of rock-hard loaves better suited for bludgeoning a burglar rather than for hedonistic consumption. The task was daunting, but I knew it was time.
Many spoonfuls of stubborn yeast and numerous bags of flour later, I did it with my own bare hands. I now felt comfortable and confident making my own bread.
But I wanted to take it to the next level. This Instructable is my result. It is a jam-filled loaf of bread shaped into a pig. When you slice into it, it will have you squealing like a surprised piglet!
When it's time to return to school, I say my sad goodbyes, and lovingly leave my parents with a freezer full of baked goods and a hefty electricity bill.
Make a jam-filled loaf in the form of a pig. Cut into it for a "bloody" surprise. Great for Halloween.
