What could be better than a crispy and freshly baked bread? How to bake bread is easier than you think, if you pay attention to a few simple steps.
You already have a lot of experience on how to bake bread? Then this article is not for you.
But if you are a newbie, then you should definitely read on. Because today I want to show you step by step how you can bake your own bread. I’ll show you the whole thing on a simple yeast bread recipe.
And baking bread with sourdough also works according to the same principle.
How to bake bread and what do you need to bake yourself?
You don’t need any further equipment except for a normal household oven with about 250°C top/bottom heat and a kitchen scale.
If you want to bake your own bread in the long term, there will still be some accessories that you want to buy, but for the beginning, what you already have in the kitchen is just enough.
Above all, a good bread needs one thing: a lot of time!
What you don’t need when baking bread is a lot of yeast. Unfortunately, many bread recipes on the large recipe portals convey a completely different impression.
The less yeast you use, the more time the dough needs to rest. But the taste becomes much more intense. And even though this may sound quite elaborate, most of the time the dough is covered and you don’t have to pay any attention to it.
I don’t want to go into more detail why it is better to bake with a lot of time and little yeast, because today I am about making bread myself. That would be enough content for a new article. Maybe I’ll write something about it soon.
