Hi from the Newby
First of all let me tell you all that my username is supposed to be ironic :)
I have joined the forum because I can't bake.
I am a fairly decent cook and I continously change and adapt recipes.
I tried the same thing baking... Big Mistake...Huge! But I guess you all already know that.
The first thing I learned this week is that Baking Powder and Yeast are NOT the same thing. So for my first loaf of bread I got a raw piece of dough. I went to bed a little frustrated with the effort but refused to throw away the dough. Next morning i put said dough in the oven to finish baking. Now as you may have guessed it was dry by then so I sprayed with water then threw it in the oven at 325 ( I figured low heat will thoroughly bake it right?) Ok so to end my story I ended up with a loaf good enough to brake a window with.
Now I am sure that I'll be back here asking lots of questions and most will not be smart so Please have some patience.
