Many players are familiar with Spice Bread as being the first cooking recipe they learn. Spice bread is the noob's way of quickly leveling their cooking skill up to 30 or 40, and it's always a little sad when the recipe turns gray. In honor of its iconic place in profession leveling on lowbie toons, today I'm going to make spice bread. Unfortunately, unlike in the game, it's a somewhat involved process. Breadmaking itself is simple in concept, but can often be finicky in execution.
A starting note: when making bread, you can either add yeast via yeast cakes or active dry yeast, or you can make a bread sponge (starter) and use that. Active dry yeast is the simplest way to do things, so that's what's in this recipe. However, bread made from a starter doesn't go stale as quickly for whatever reason, so I encourage you to try out a starter if you're interested in regular bread making.
