~Home Made Bread~

This has to be some of the easiest breads to make! I basically use the master recipe in a wonderful recipe book some of you know i call my bread bible! If you dont have a copy ask santa for one for chrissy!!
The only difference to the master recipe is all the healthy stuff i add to it :D I almost always add ground flaxseed meal to all my bread doughs! In this batch i also added wheat bran, oats and some barley!
I dont make sweet breads :) as i like the savory type i grew up on savory bread in australia and i found it very hard to get use to american bread because it was so sweet..
When i first started making bread i was so happy hearing the crunch of the bread as i broke it in half and then to smell that savory smell of yeast! I cant say my mum made bread from scratch but back home there was always a bakery round the corner selling top knotch loaves of bread just like this!
If you've never baked your own bread from scratch you should really give it a try! It is so rewarding! To know that that loaf of bread your family is eatting was made by you :) Have any questions dont be afraid to ask im not a pro but i will try my best to answer best my knowledge!

Have you ever made James Beard's Cuban bread. It's an easy recipe and the bread is fantastic. I usually add soy flour, whole wheat, and oats to it.
