Question about "Your first loaf" lessons
I've been reading these and on lesson two, it talks about things to add to your bread. It gives suggestions regarding the flours/grains, sugars, and fats. There wasn't anything regarding the liquid portion. I'm extremely new to baking. I'm a cook more than anything, but dough has always terrified me. In cooking, when you flavor with liquids, you can use all kinds of different items.
What about bread? Instead of water, can I use beer? Chicken Broth? I saw a post on here about a Raisin bread and someone suggested using EggNog. Milk? Apple juice? What happens if I use something besides water?
Also, what about using these different liquids as a glaze? Flavored glaze? Egg yolk/Roasted Garlic? Beer glaze/Kosher Salt?
Thanks for any help!
