Easy Homemade Bread
Aahhh Pinterest! Pinterest gets me.
After a day filled with learning, doing, and retaining more information than I planned on, I just want to relax, be visually stimulated, and mindlessly scroll away. However, as you may or may not know, I’ve also been on a mission to actually begin accomplishing some of these crafty ideas and recipes, not just virtually hoard them.
For some time now I’ve been wanting to make my own bread. Gasp! I know, complicated. Lately (over the last few years), I become increasingly aware and want to know more of what’s going in my families bellies, and I want to be able to control the ingredients. But here’s another piece of “getting to know you” fact about me, if I need fancy equipment, then I’m not doing it. I’m just being honest. As soon as I click on a recipe I scroll to the bottom, look at the ingredients and the equipment needed. If I have to buy groceries that I may never use again, or need anything other than basic equipment, I immediately decide not to do it.
Back to bread. I’ve tried a few recipes and I found one that I’ve finally been able to follow and have it turn out deliciously! Like I said, I love that I didn’t need a fancy bread maker, or even a mixer (although I have one, and I used it). If you follow this recipe then you’ll know that you can just mix the ingredients by hand.
For me, this is the first step in eliminating some white flower (glutens) from our diets. I need to go one step at a time though. I want to know that I can make the product, then once I feel comfortable to move on, I can adjust the product.
Here’s the bread recipe from Sandra’s Easy Cooking
*I want to add a note to be careful on the salt, I went on the lower side the second time around and it was much better than the first time.
Ya’ll I was so excited to accomplish this! I’ve been wanting to do this for so long, but it sounded a lot harder than it actually was! Please, share with me if you know of any good gluten free bread. Because I want the best of both worlds! Don’t worry bread, I’ll never give up on you-not like Rose did to Jack on that huge door that was definitely large enough for two people, c’mon Rose! I digress. Gluten free recipes please!
