there is nothing quite
as comforting as
the heavenly aroma
of freshly baked bread ~
fill your home with love
Being that I haven’t been to the grocery store since March 16th we have run out of bread (among other things) I decided to Finally try my hand at homemade yeast bread. I have to say I love baking… cookies, cakes, pies, muffins, quick-breads… and on and on BUT I made one attempt along time ago with yeast that failed and have been intimidated ever since.
But necessity and all… so I found a recipe in a cook book I have here and wouldn’t ya know it… i didn’t have all the ingredients. I had yeast cause I had picked some up awhile back planning on giving it a try sometime…but I didn’t have any milk. BUT I remembered we do have some powdered stuff in the “emergency supplies.” So I jumped online (amazingly enough) and searched recipes for homemade bread using powdered milk… and I found several. I decided on this one:
Now here are the pictures of what I made 🙂 The recipe makes two loaves and I only have one loaf pan so I free-formed the other one on a cookie sheet 😉
Isn’t it lovely? I have to say I’m pretty pleased with myself!
One note: The recipe calls for 6 to 7 cups of flour…it tells you to start with 4 cups and add a little at a time as you may not need that much…it’s true! I ended up using about 5 1/3 cups.
