Spam links removed, but this is a fine topic!

I loved baking my own bread, but I find it very difficult to find the time nowadays. I've been thinking about starting it up again, at least occasionally, because it is such a great way to get grounded mentally. I find it so meditative. Oh, and delicious.


That's so weird. I picked up active yeast this morning because I plan on baking bread this week. I have an amazing recipe that only requires one rising period before the dough is punched down and allowed to expand in the loaf pans and baked. If you don't have time to spend half a day to bake bread, it's a handy recipe, and each loaf costs a fraction of what you'd pay for an industrially produced bread that doesn't have a particle of the taste, texture and freshness of home baked bread.

I baked our bread for a while, but that was years ago. Fortunately, we have an awesome bakery around the corner here, so we have a standing order we pick up every week. Once in a while, the girls and I like to make challah bread, braided with a sprinkle of poppy seeds on top. And I want to make cinnamon buns one of these days soon, but again, time has been pretty tight.

I always found kneading dough a good way to get rid of bad energy.


I used to bake a bunch of loaves once a week steady. Water, yeast, salt, oil. Now I usually just do it for pizza or foccacio. The one thing I did back then was put in one tablespoon of madras curry for about six loaves. Gave it a bit of colour and a slight savoury edge.
