In this course you will see that making you own bread does not take that much time, talent or special equipment. Most breads can be make in less than 4 hours with equipment and ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen.
In this course we will show you how you can add the ingredients you want in a bread and how to form it into the shape you want. No chemical preservative and there are endless bread making variations that you can try. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination so you may never make the same bread twice.
Homemade yeast breads are excellent contributions to a pot luck dinner, fund raising bake sale or a special occasion. They also add a nice touch to an otherwise ordinary dinner.
This course assumes that you have no prior knowledge or experience with making yeast breads. That’s the way I started 35 years ago and have been baking my own breads ever since – rarely do I eat store-bought bread. This course is geared for beginners and we will introduce you to six different bread recipes that use basic ingredients and kitchen skills. There are no exotic ingredients that you will need to buy or any special equipment. Everything you will need you probably already have in your kitchen, with the possible exception of yeast. Once you become hooked on baking your own yeast breads, there are plenty of resources available to expand your bread baking horizons to make more exotic breads.
In this course, after explaining the basic equipment and ingredients that you will need, you will learn how to make 7 different breads. These breads include:
Basic white bread
Whole wheat sandwich bread
Coffee can breakfast bread

Each of these breads will be make start-to-finish in this course in real time – nothing will be omitted, with the exception of the required rising (proofing) of the dough. All of these breads can be completed in 4 hours. The downloadable resources include 11 recipes, list of needed equipment and ingredients, glossary of bread baking terms and some helpful hints.
