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.

    Recipe Peachy Orange Banana Bread

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)

    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...

    Adding water during bread baking

    Adding water to preheated vessel during baking bread helps create steam to make for a more crispy crust, does that work all the time? My Sourdough needs a more crispy crust and that is the only thing I know that helps. When it's cooled, it's more "leathery" and I want it to, if anything get...

    How do you buy your yeast for bread making?

    The other day, I picked up this jar of yeast at Whole Foods. I normally buy the PACKETS of yeast, but I saw this & bought it instead. How do you buy YOUR yeast? The jar size helps save you from having to buy it as much, but DO be careful, as you must try to use it up before the expiration date...

If I were to make my own bread, how do I divide it into slices of equal weight and similar size without using a professional slicer? Once I've sliced the bread, I would...
