I have been trying for weeks now to make homemade bread.
Not only is it better for you..it's cheaper!
Well that is if it actually turns out for you,which none of mine have.
I don't know what my problem is but I can NOT seem to make this stuff.
I have made buns and they turned out..OK.
I can make pretzels and they turn out pretty good.
I just can't do bread.
Yesterday I tried again and failed.
But Chris..you say..it looks pretty good.Well yes it does until you factor in that it should look like this..
AND factor in that it didn't rise AT ALL until finally 3 hours later when I said "what the heck" rolled it up and threw it in the oven anyway.
once it came out and cooled we cut into and tasted it..
all I can say is it tasted like...umm whats that stuff we used to eat in Kindergaren??..
Oh I know paste!only this tasted like dried paste..(don't ask me how I know that)
Ya it was..not good.
I have spent countless hours,mixing,kneading,punching and cursing this stuff not to mention the amount of flour I have gone through..well I give up.
Even the.."you can't get an easier bread recipe" recipe,eludes me.
I did however find a great use for the stuff
Yep,I am making a cake for a friend and this was perfect for testing out the topper.
Skewers go right through it and it's pasty enough to hold them without falling over..
.heavy enough too.
BTW I do not plan on making the cake from scratch..I have learned that lesson all too well.
