I Love the Smell of Freshly Baked Bread

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,918 People

    I've never baked a bread in my life.

    To be honest I don't even know the ingredients used to make bread. All I know about freshly baked bread is that it smells so good. Seriously it could be my weed. I'm so strange that I like to sniff breads.

    A Perfect Moment Is Smelling Fresh Bread.

    I choose Countries by the bread they bake. I choose supermarkets by the quality of their bread. I choose routes to places I need to be by bakeries on the way. I LOVE BREAD! If I had my time again it would be as an artisan baker in a small French village. A servant of the people...

    I wish I had an air freshener

    or perfume/deodorant that has this scent! The smell is better than the taste! Every night before sleeping (if I do that night) I imagine I'm surrounded by the sweet aroma of freshly baked bread

    Delicious Scent

    I think there's something in the Song of Solomon in the Bible about "nothing being so wonderful as bread eaten in secret." Solomon should have added about the smell too ;)I tend to bake flour-bricks when I try, but my girlfriend is amazing not just at ordinary loaves but...

    Mmm...Could Eat the Smell

    I live near a commercial bakery.  I love The smell emanating from it.  On a good day you can smell it a mile away.  It's like having a few moments of bliss while driving by.

    *deep Breath*

    A few years ago I received a bread machine from my former Mother-in-Law. It was the best! I then went out and bought a cook book of recipes for a bread machine and really got into it. I made bagels, loaves of bread and tons of dough for other pastries and snacks with it. It made...

    My Mum was forever baking some when I was young, she still does it now, when shes home and not in York or Belgium or wherever her work takes her. I've never really attempted it, preffering to make such things as muffins. If I get really desperate for the smells of fresh bread...

    There's nothing for the nostrils like this.    Apart from the breeze at sea, in the mountains or on the plain, apart from the scent of some flowers or hay, or the hair of a woman, apart from the air that is Champaign at the countryside, apart from the...

    Grew Up Baking

    I'm pretty sure I have been baking since I was old enough to hold a spoon and stir. My family has always been big on baking. I never used to appreciate the wonder of fresh baked bread because I was too worried about all the sweets: cookies, cakes, pies, etc. I took baking...

    Sweetest Scent Of Basic Food

    There is a factory near where i work and every morning the smell of fresh bread fills the air. It makes me very hungry, i can see why supermarkets bake their own bread, so people will buy more shopping.

    It's One Of The Joys Of Life

    I went through a period of financial hardship and got fed up with the price of good bread. Also, I had never baked bread in my life, and I decided that as important as bread is, I should bake some. That was about fifteen years ago, and I’ve bought less than fifteen loaves...

    It has to be artisan.

    The best bread comes from artisan bakers. They really care to produce bread that is delicious.
