About 3 weeks ago - when yeast was not available - I scored a five pack of frozen rise and bake bread loaves. The fourth is in the oven - one left in the freezer.
the top gets a beautiful golden brown. The sides are white. Is it my pan? I am using a Teflon pan. Medium gray. Should I be...

1½ tbsp caster sugar, plus a pinch
1 tsp fast-action dried yeast
1 tbsp sunflower oil
plus extra for greasing and brushing
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp baking...
I call this a loaf-cake because its a bit like a cross between bread and a heavy cake. It goes well with salad for a nice lunch but its tasty enough to eat on its own (especially toasted).
I know this is a bit of a vague recipe - the exact quantities of the vegetables aren't specified but you...
I would like some help with understanding what I am doing wrong when making bread by hand.
I have been making plenty of loaves using my own sourdough starter made from wholemeal rye flour and water. I do everything inside a pyrex bowl, stretch and fold every 45 mins for about 6...
Pappa al pomodoro is a specialty from Siena, in Tuscany, and a great idea to use up some old bread that is too hard to be eaten by itself.
Made with simple, cheap ingredients, this soup can be served both warm for a cozy winter day and at room temperature, for a breezy summertime evening...
First let me say I am NOT a cook. I just mess around.:thumbsdown:
I live on my own, with just an up & over fridge/freezer, so very limited storage.
I don't use a lot of bread, a large loaf will last me 2-3 weeks, so when I buy one, it takes up valuable freezer space.
Over the years, I have...
I was surprised I didn't post this one when I made it, which was February of 2017, but I see that this predated my time on this forum (I joined a month later). I took my wife to BLT Steak in Las Vegas to celebrate her birthday in 2017, and they had the best bread we've ever had in our lives. I...
So I've had disasters at making bread for last 12 months, discovered yeast was 2 years expired, OK, I'll get new yeast.
Got some today, yeast seemed to froth a wee bit? Made bread, didn't rise, I cooked it anyway, was ok but too dense because it didn't rise. So tried to start second batch...
This simple cake is easy to prepare and a really delicious idea to use that old, dry bread that one should never ever throw away. This cake has poor origin and I just love it.
The use of stale bread is one of the staples of Italian cuisine and this cake is a worthy representative of it since it...

I have been looking for a low-carb bread for a while and, as those of you who watch carbs know, low-carb bread leaves much much to be desired. Well, I found a fantastic recipe and the bread tastes great! Not only does it have very little carbs but prep is only about 25 minutes and baking it is...
Watching on the news decades back as wildfires swept across the Southland people evacuating could be seen also packing the bread machine in the car then made their exodus from harms way.
We were cleaning out a big storage shed we have and came across my old Panasonic bread maker.
I used to...
I was making reasonable bread, then I changed my Neff oven for an updated model of the same oven, now my bread seems dry as if its two days old. Can any of you wonderful people point out what I'm doing wrong and how to remedy this. 😕
