My sister bought us one a present two (Three?) years ago, and we've not eaten shop bread since. A word of caution, though - unless you really like bread that can sink ducks, use a mix of white/wholemeal bread flour rather than wholemeal on its own............... ;) :lol:

I made my first loaf today. Chuffed to bits I am :grin:

Cheated a bit though, walking around the bakery section in our local Asda, I noticed hovis home bread baking packets at 2 for a £1. Just added water and the family all admit it was a great 1st attempt. Just got to pluck up the courage to make my own now though :grin:

I made a 'Ploughmans' loaf (Contained cheese, pickled onion, and granary flour) over the weekend for my auntie. She gave me a book and gave a hint that she'd like to try one. 1st failed (Too much moisture) so I reduced the moisture, hey presto it worked. I never tried it (Don't like pickled onions) but my auntie was more than happy :grin:

Mix flour,sugar,salt,yeast and fat together. Slowly add the water so you get a nice workable dough. Knead for 5 minutes* Leave to rise in a warm area until it doubles in size. Bake in oven around 200 oc for approx 40 minutes. When cooked take it out of the loaf tin or of the baking sheet and rest it for 10 minutes on a cooling rack.



What is 200 oc in Fahrenheit?? I know I can convert the other measurements but not sure on this??

I have been making white bread succesfully for quite some time now, but recently been baking wholemeal bread, its nice but so heavy , any ideas on how to make it lighter?

I cheat a bit and use half white flour and half wholemeal. Makes a lighter loaf. Also leave it to rise longer than they say.

Ok, I tried leaving it longer the other day but it started to deflate, so think i left it too long. I will try using some white too, see if this helps, I like wholemeal but not that heavy.

I made my 1st attempt at a new bread today for my mum. A granary loaf with sultanas and raisins, have to say she is thrilled with the result. So much so, she wants one each week :lol:
