Baked my first loaf of bread!
    #9025263 - 10/03/08 08:53 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

my father used to make bread all of the time with his bread maker, but this is MY first loaf, and it was very easy to do by hand.



1/4 cup milk
5 teaspoons sugar (or 1 1/2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoons salt
5 teaspoons butter (or 1 1/2 tablespoons)
1 package active dry yeast (you can get yeast near the flour at your local grocery store)
2 1/2 to 3 1/2 cups flour(i used 100% whole wheat, stone ground)
nonstick cooking spray

1. OK, let’s get started. First, you should warm up the bowl - the best way to do that is to just fill it with hot water, then dump out the hot water, leaving the bowl rather warm. Then, mix up the yeast according to the directions on the packet. Usually, it will say something along the lines of “add a cup of warm water to the yeast and stir.” What you’ll end up with is some tan-colored water with some bubbles in it, as shown above. You should stir this until there are no lumps in the yeast.

2. Melt the butter, then add it, the milk, the sugar, and the salt to the yeast liquid and stir it up until everything looks the same. Then add two cups of flour to the mix - don’t add the rest yet.

3. Start stirring, and then add the flour about 1/4 cup at a time every minute or so. It will stick to the spoon big time at first - don’t worry about it. Keep stirring and adding flour until the dough is still slightly sticky, but it doesn’t stick to your hands in any significant way. Also, it should largely clean the sides of the bowl, leaving just a thin layer of floury stuff.

4. Now comes the fun part: kneading. Take a bit of flour between your hands and then rub them together over the top of an area on the table where you’re going to knead the dough. Do this a few times until there’s an area on the table lightly covered in flour. Then grab the dough ball out of the bowl, slap it down on the table, and start beating on it. Do this for ten minutes. Just take the dough, punch it flat, then fold it back up into a ball again, and repeat several times.

5. When the ten minutes are up, shape it into a ball, then either clean up the bowl you were using before or get out another bowl. Either coat the inside lightly with nonstick cooking spray, depending on your preference, then put the ball of dough inside the bowl.

6. Put a cloth over the bowl and sit it somewhere fairly warm for an hour. If you have a warming area on your stove top, that’s a great place to put it - set the warming area on as low as it will go, as I’m doing in the picture above. This is a good time to clean everything else and put the stuff away, but leave the flour out and the floured area on your table untouched.

7. It should be roughly double the size that it was before, but don’t sweat it too much if it’s larger or smaller than that, as long as it rose at least some amount. Punch the dough down (three or four good whacks will cause it to shrink back down to normal), then lay the dough out on the floured area and spread it out in a rectangle shape, with one side being roughly the length of the bread pan and the other side being about a bread pan and a half long.

8. You may need to put a bit more flour on it and on the table to prevent sticking. Then, roll it up!

9. Tuck the ends of the roll underneath, with the “under” side being where the seam is. Then spray the bread pan down with nonstick cooking spray and put the loaf inside of the pan.

10. Cover that loaf up with the towel, put it back where it was before, and wait another hour.

11. Put that loaf in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for thirty minutes. When it’s done, pull it out and immediately remove it from the pan to cool.

12. Let it cool down completely before slicing.









YUM!!

I have a tiny apartment, and if I try to cook, the house gets uncomfortable warm very quickly.

On the other hand, in the wintertime I have to heat my house with electric heat. I would like to get more value from the energy I use to heat my house, and cooking is a good way to do that. So here in about another month I'll be starting a cooking binge.

Bread is high on my list of things to heat my house with. I'll have to give this recipe (and a zillion others) a try.

im in an apartment, but it doesnt get too bad from cooking. luckily. whats the sq. footage of your apartment? ive got a 2/2 with 1100 sq. ft.

good idea!  just leave the oven door open to release the heat when youre done for some recycled warmth.  :thumbup:

it was so delicious hitler.  so much better than even the bakery at publix.  good shit right here. and its pretty cheap to make.

When making your bread mix up, take a small portion of the raw batter and set it aside in a jar or ziploc baggie for a week or so.  Then, when you bake your next batch of bread, you have a starter so you can do sourdough bread. 

There's an undeniable...old-school...feeling to baking your own staff of life, isn't there?  I don't make white bread often, but every now and again, especially around thanksgiving and christmas, I get the urge to make up some sourdough.  Here's the recipe I use, taken from "The Sultan's Kitchen: A Turkish Cookbook" (May sound strange, but Turkish Ekmegi is pretty much the same as good ol' American sourdough, and more importantly, just as tasty.  On a sidenote, if you like middle eastern food, buy this book now.

Türk Ekmeği

Sourdough Starter:
1/12 cups unbleached AP Flour, sifted
3/4 cup lukewarm water

Dough:
1 TBSP plust 2 TSP active dry or moist fresh yeast
1 TBSP sugar
1/2 cup warm water
6 cups unbleached AP flour, sifted, plus extra for dusting
2 cups lukewarm water
1 TBSP salt
Cornmeal, for dusting


To make the starter, place 1/2 cup of flour and 1/4 cup lukewarm water in a container.  Stir well, cover, and let sit at room temperature overnight (Starter can last for a week or more).  The next day, add 1/2 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of water, mix, and let sit overnight.  Repeat one more time.

To make the bread, place yeast, sugar, and 1/2 cup warm water in bowl, and mix well.  Let stand for 10 minutes, or until the yeast has made the mixture frothy.

Place yeast mixture into a large bowl, stir in flour, and sourdough starter (broken up into smaller pieces).  Add 2 cups of lukewarm water and mix well.

Dust your hands and surface the bread will be worked on with flour, lay the dough out, and knead for 7 to 8 minutes.  Flatten the dough, and sprinkle on salt.  Fold dough in half and knead for 2 more minutes until smooth and satiny, and springs back when touched.  If it is still sticky, it needs more flour kneaded in.

Place dough on lightly floured surface, sprinkle flour over it, cover, and let rest in a warm place for 2 to 2 1/2 hours (Since I usually make this recipe during winter, I usually set these guys by my fireplace. 

When ready, uncover and punch out the air.  Divide the dough into two halves, knead for 2 to 3 minutes, then shape into two tight, oval loaves.  Cover again and put back in warm place for 45 minutes, or until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 425 and set a pizza stone or quarry tile in the center of oven.  To give the bread a nice crust, put two pans of boiling water in either side of the oven, removing them prior to baking.  You can also spray cold water into the oven with a mister bottle during the first 15 minutes of baking, every 5 minutes.

Dust your loaves (LIGHTLY) with cornmeal and score a few 1/2 inch deep cuts into the top of each loaf, and set them on the pizza stone.  Bake for 40 minutes.

To check for doneness, tap the bottom of the loaf with your fingertip.  It should sound hollow.  If not, the center isn't done, and likely needs at least 5 more minutes of baking.  When done, allow to cool on a wire rack.
