I have been trying like a mad women to teach myself how to bake bread. I knew going in that since I didn't have a bread machine it was going to be a bit more challenging, but because I do LOVE a good challenge I went ahead and gave it the ol' college try.
For my first batch I wanted to make a good whole wheat and whole grain vegan bread. I guess I added too much "good stuff" to the dough because it came out solid like a rock. It looked good, smelled great but couldn't cut it with a knife.
Once again I decided that I really wanted this bread, I really wanted to learn how to make bread and I wasn't going to give it a rest until I did.
So this time I decided that I was going to follow a simple recipe that I found here, and I wasn't going to add anything extra to it. I did everything to the exact, and guess what?
YAY for me, I'm so excited about it that now I cant wait to try and make others. I love how my whole house smells so yummy while I'm baking bread, it makes my mouth water.
I'm still working on a few other bread recipes but would love some tips from anyone who makes bread more frequently than me.
