Bread is a staple food prepared from a dough of flour (usually wheat) and water, usually by baking.
Bread may be leavened by naturally occurring microbes (e.g. sourdough), chemicals (e.g. baking soda), industrially produced yeast, or high-pressure aeration, which creates the gas bubbles that fluff up bread. In many countries, commercial bread often contains additives to improve flavour, texture, colour, shelf life, nutrition, and ease of production.

    Bread makers

    I’m finding bread making too hard on my hands and am thinking I’d like a bread maker to take over the strain. I like the idea of the delayed start and drop compartment some have for adding seeds/olives etc at the right moment. It needs to be easy to clean and as it’s mostly for gluten free...

    Recipe Peachy Orange Banana Bread

    I didn't just add orange to the banana bread recipe I posted recently. I overhauled it. Firstly, it doesn't need the nuts that a lot of people like to add to banana bread recipes. Secondly, the teaspoon of cinnamon I used last time wasn't nearly enough. Technique-wise, I find that it makes more...

    Today’s Bread (2023-2024)

    I wanted to put my new food processor through its paces, so I churned out a standard wheat sandwich loaf: Worked out really well, the food processor didn’t budge at all and was very quiet while kneading away at a 4-cups-of-flour dough.

    Pumpkin Seeds in bread

    Hello all, I made my first bread a couple of weeks back and it turned out well, but I would like to try the same bread with pumpkin seeds in it. What I'm not sure about is how many seeds to add. Would half a cup seem like a reasonable amount? When should I add the seeds? At the very...

    Recipe Gluten free, Chickpea Flour Beer Bread

    I'm not gluten free, but I do love chickpeas so this recipe was a must try for me. I used a very light vegan Pilsner beer, but any vegan beer would make it vegan. But if you want a gluten-free loaf, you'll need to track down a gluten free beer. And if you don't want to use beer or can't have...
