Tip & How-To about Baking

Is it Hard to Make Your Own Bread?

Making your own bread sounds like a very labor intensive process. But with the right advice and good recipes, you'll find that it's not as hard as you thought and it tastes so much better than the preservative filled shop bought bread.
Learning to bake bread can be a bit time consuming and it requires several stages in the baking process. But once you become confident, you'll be able to quickly do the steps and work your bread making around your timetable.

  1. The first step involves mixing your basic ingredients (google a basic bread recipe or ask a friend for a recommendation).
  2. Then you need to knead it for around 10 minutes, depending on the kind of loaf you are making.
  3. Then the bread needs to rise in a warm place. The yeast should help the dough to double in size.
  4. Then you punch the dough down to remove the air.
  5. You then shape the bread or rolls and allow them to rise again.
  6. Finally you can bake them.
As I said - there are lots of steps but it's totally worth it.
Freshly baked bread is out of this world.
Enjoy ;-)

Need recipes for DAK Turbo Baker II Bread Machine. There are other bread machine recipes but the DAK makes a larger loaf than most machines so I need one scaled for the Turbo Baker II. A recipe book came with the unit but I've lost it. Please help me find the "Basic Bread" recipe. (it's the recipe I used the most, and which makes the best bread) Thanks.

Mom's Basic White Bread for DAK Turbo II
1 package yeast
3 cups flour
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 T nonfat dry milk powder
1 T butter (room temperature)
1 1/4 cups warm water (Not straight hot. It'll kill the yeast.)

Pour the yeast to one side of the inner pan. Add the rest of the ingredients in the order above. Select white bread and push "Start."
