Homemade Bread

Traditional Old's cool bread
(flour, water, salt, yeast) in wheat.

Don't use much yeast. The dough is supposed to raise over night. Dough consistency is very important. I suggest you use a bread maker to mix all the ingredients. Bake in a cast iron in the oven at 425 F. You must pre-heat the cast iron first. Bake for about 30 minutes, and then uncover the pot and bake for another 5 minutes.

Friend of mine made four 10-pound loaves for Thanksgiving.







I love good homemade bread.

I was given this 2 years ago and just this weekend I made my first bread. Just some plain white rolls, but I made them and they tasted pretty good. Good enough to eat, but not so good that I don't think I can do better. I think I might get hooked though. I love the alchemy of it all. The way dough comes together, the rise, the finished result.



saw him make one of these on tv called a puffball. Looks amazing ( not made by me!!)

Beautiful!

I'm going to try some dutch oven bread in our newly purchased Big Green Egg.

WHERE can I find some bread-machine recipes that won't result in such a heavy, dense loaf? I LOVE homemade bread but even if I just use the machine to make the dough, it still comes out really heavy.

I want to lighten up my loaves...

I have this rocking good gingerbread recipe using Golden Syrup and black treacle. It always gets eaten before pics can be made.
