    Tips For Store-quality 100% Whole Wheat Bread

    There's this perpetual myth floating around that all 100% whole wheat is a dense crumbly brick of failure. I used to believe this until I looked into making my own bread (to cut out chemical preservatives, additives, excess processed sugars, etc.) and did some research and...

    The server is excruciatingly slow today (even worse than usual) so I’m not sure if this post will actually make it; I’ve got time to bake a cake while I wait for the page to refresh!  Many of you may rejoice at this news (keep the Barmy Cow as far away from these pages as...

    Well...

    I tried to...but it didn't rise.  It still tastes ok though.   I'll try a different recipe in a couple days, maybe it'll work out better next time...

    Whole Wheat Flaxseed Bread from scratch

    My husband taught me how to make your own bread from scratch. The recipe we found was from his grandmothers cook book. We have tweaked the recipe a little to add the flax and regular milk instead of dry milk. I do this all by hand no bread machine. I am getting better at it every...

    For My Gluten-free Friends :)

    When my niece was smaller, and my sister was still nursing, they discovered that anytime my sister ate wheat products and then nursed the baby would get sick. It seems like she has outgrown it for the most part, but I gathered a fair number of gluten-free recipes while my sister...

    If You're Baking and You Know It Clap Your Hands

    Thanks to the magic of my bread maker and Lauke bread mix, I bake my own bread these days. Its healthier. I like healthy. I also like the smell of fresh bread. I don't understand the saying 'the best thing since sliced bread, although my uneven, asymmetrical bread slices might...

    I have always loved the smell

    and flavor of home baked bread, but it was always the wrong texture for my main uses for bread. Last week I figured out how to make a sandwich bread that slices and toasts wonderfully! I haven't bought grocery store bread yet, and I don't plan to. It's just too easy and too...

    I Love It!

    Seeing it rise, eating fresh bread, having th satisfaction of knowing YOU made this, I love it. I enjoy making lussekatter in particular, but enjoy making flat breads, especially pitta bread. Challam bread is delicious and bagels are even nicer.

    An Aphrodisiac

    I worked in the shop today because Angela had to go for an MRI at the hospital.  I dropped an 11ounce bottle of agarwood oil and it smashed to bits on the shop tiles.  Pardon my French but, ****!  That’s four hundred quid in a greasy puddle on the shop floor.  Not a good...

    Not Loaves

    but rolls. I've made bread a few times but it never works well.  It always gets stuck on the blade at the bottom of the bread maker, yuck. Now, I wait for the dough to rise then put it in a cupcake pan and bake it in the oven.  Of course, it doesn't last as...

    I cheat a bit.I have a breadmaking machine.

    I do not make bread very often as I do not eat a lot and when I do make some pasrt of it usually goes off before I have eaten it all! Not very economical especially if you add in the cost of electricity.

    With a Bread Machine

    I can bake my own bread by hand, but now we use a bread machine. It was very cheap and it is quicker, easier and less messy.
