Bread-Baking Basics!!

Many people think it's hard to bake homemade bread and rolls.....but it REALLY isn't!

With a couple times under your "belt", you'll find how easy it is!

Yup, we're covering VERY EASY cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls and more the next week or two....did I say very easy??

Nothing much better than smelling the bread bake and the ooooohs and ahhhhhs you'll get at dinner for very lil effort. Aside from you mixing/kneading, kneading again, and baking, it takes care of itself!


Generally, here are basic instrux and recipe!

1. Put 1 cup of warm water plus one tablespoon sugar in a mixing bowl. Add two tablespoons of yeast. Let sit for about five minutes.

2. Add three cups of flour, 1 cup of milk, dash of salt, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 3-4 tablespoons of oil or melted (and cooled) margarine or shortening. Stir 50 times clockwise, and then 50 times counter-clockwise.

3. Add another 3 to 4 cups of flour and mix until the dough forms a good ball. Turn dough out of the bowl onto a floured surface and let it sit for ten minutes. Then, knead the dough for 5 to 10 minutes.

4. Let rise in a greased bowl for about an hour (it should double in size). Punch down the dough. Let it rise again for 30 to 45 minutes. Divide into two equal parts and shape into loaves. Place in loaf pans and bake at 425 degrees for about 25-30 minutes.
