    The Bread Thread. Who (and What) are ya baking?

    Have gotten into my bread baking.

    Still doing light n fluffy white, as it's delicious. Quite basic and one I'm sure you're all experienced in.

    3/4 cup water. 1/4 cup milk.
    tbls sugar and tspn salt.
    yeast.
    1/4 cup of veg oil.
    3 cups of flour.

    Knead, sit for an hour, knead, sit for 30 min.

    Into your oven for 30 min at 175c.


    Who's doing funky foccacias or crusty croissants? I fancy taking a walk on the wild side and start experimenting.

    You'll never manage to do criossants unless you have an air-conned room with it turned up high.

    The Midget does outstanding ciabattas.

    Oh, and your 'basic' bread recipe has too many ingredients.

    What excellent timing.

    We baked our first loaf today.
    Three wholewheat done in bread tins.
    Turned out better than expected.

    What the fuck is all that oil for? Couple of tablespoons of olive oil is all you need. (actually you don't need that really - the oil just compensates for sloppiness in your method, kneading & baking - adds little to the flavor)

    I make a basic white loaf like this.

    450gms flour
    1.5 tsp yeast
    1.5 tsp salt
    1 tsp sugar
    1/2 pint warm water

    Mix it together, and knead it for 4-5 mins in the mixer, using the dough hook.
    Leave it to rise for 1 hour.
    Knead in the mixer again, for 1 min.
    Shape it, and place it on a baking sheet.
    Leave it for 30 mins.
    Cut a cross in the top and sprinkle some flour over it.
    Bake in the oven at 220c for 25 mins.

    Now that I've mastered this one, I think I'm ready to attempt something a bit more exotic.
    Do not walk beside me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me for I may not follow. Just pretty much leave me the fuck alone!

    I nearly bought a bread baking machine in Pattaya yesterday which did all the kneading for you but it was 6,500 baht. They only sold 1 machine so no choice. Is this a good price?

    Severin is a good name as well. I have had one of their ovens for over 8 years now, and not a problem one.

    These were cooked in an oven. The bread maker above is not mine.
    The two on the left were made with butter and 50% wholewheat flour.
    We didn't put enough dough in the tins so they came out short.
    The one on the right was made with rice bran oil and 25% wholewheat flour and is a better size.

    Lovely to have toast that is thick, I do like proper doorsteps for breakfast

    In Central, 5th floor.

    Let me know how good it is. I like the idea of a machine you just throw everything in and press a button.

    I make bread with a bread machine.
    Normally I would buy a loaf of real bread from a baker for 1.75.
    With the bread machine a bag of bread flour costs .69p and yeast is .69. Unknown what the yield is but I am sure I save money.

    There is a difference though between bread from a bakery, bread from the store and bread from the machine. You just have to accept it and enjoy it.

    For those who claim "real" bread is the only way all the homemade bread I have had was leaden through lack of yeast action and possibly full of wholemeal. I wouldnt eat that but am very happy with the bread machine.

    I can make all sorts of bread including sweet breads for toast (fail) and dough for baking in an oven (fail).

    Get someone with a bread machine to make a loaf for you otherwise the machine joins the juicers and smoothie makers in the loft.
