THE AROMA OF FRESH HOMEMADE BREAD...
As a follow up to my recent post about Pizza making, here is the video I made on how to make fresh homemade bread. I actually go through the steps on dough making in this video, but the same steps apply to the Pizza dough.
This is the base recipe for white bread, but you can easily add other ingredients such as grains, oats, flax etc., or garlic for a wonderfully fragrant garlic bread.
You can see just how easy it is to make.. the actual "work" takes about 5 minues, the rest of the time is waiting for the dough to rise and baking for 30 minutes! You can make the slits on the bread any way you want.. get creative... make one stright cut, or several diagonal ones like I did in the photo.
If you like fresh bread, I hope you try this.. and don't be discouraged if it doesn't turn out perfect the first time.. It took me several tries to get it just right.
NOTE: always check the expiry date on the yeast... It won't work if its out of date.
