Have you ever baked any bread from scratch?

I've made a cheesebraid which was really good from scratch. I like using part of the Libby's canned pumpkin to make a pumpkin bread. Now that's a tasty bread.

  • I bake bread all the time, too. I got these great books, titled "Healthy Bread In Five Minutes A Day" and "Artisan Bread In Five Minutes A Day", that make it soooo easy to bake fresh breads every day. Even if I'm not home all day, we can have a loaf of fresh bread or fresh rolls on the table every night with dinner, it's that easy.

  • I bake bread from scratch all the time. I've spoiled my family and they don't like store-bought bread any more. I also make bagels, pita bread, tortillas, burger/hot dog/sub buns, rolls, and even make chips out of the pitas & tortillas. LOVE the pumpkin & other quick breads!

    What's your recipe for the cheese braid?

  • When I was in college, I baked bread the old fashioned way; now I use my bread machine.

  • When my kids were little, I used to bake the old-fashioned way. Now I use the bread machine on the dough setting, to do the mixing and kneading, then take it out to shape the way I want. Bread done this way still tastes like the old-fashioned way, but less work. I have also used the 5 minutes a day artisian bread method, which is really good.

  • All the time here. I do the Artisan ones, once in a while I'll do an Amish starter and use that for a while.

  • Any kind of bread?I make more than 100 full loaves of strawberry bread the first week of Dec. Then sporadically the rest of the year all sort of quick breads.
