Homemade Bread Recipe Questions
Is homemade bread better than store bought bread?
With homemade bread, you know exactly what is going into your bread. You can screen out strange chemicals and preservatives. Moreover, homemade bread generally tastes better than store bought bread because it comes out fresh and warm from your oven or bread machine and has not been sitting on a supermarket shelf for days. Homemade bread also saves you time & money because you no longer need to run to the store in order to buy bread.
Is it easy to make bread?
Yes, it is very easy to make bread. The hardest part is probably the kneading of the dough. However, most people use a bread machine or an electric mixer with dough hook to mix & knead their bread dough. Then they bake the dough in an oven. Probably the easiest way to make bread is to use a bread machine in order to mix, knead and bake a bread. All you have to do is place the ingredients in the bread machine’s bread pan, enter the correct bread machine settings and press the start button… and then the bread machine does all of the rest of the work!
