Beginner - looking for basic & simple bread recipes
Hi everyone. I'm new to this website and forum. I read the book Bread Alone by Judith Hendricks and was instantly inspired to bake - even though I know absolutely nothing about baking bread :-). I love bread and I think there is nothing better than the smell of home-made bread. I have very fond memories of my gran (who was Portuguese) baking her sweet potato loaves and we would all wait impatiently until the bread was out of the oven and almost tear the loaf apart and smear big blobs of butter all over it. And I was so disppointed that the recipe was never passed down to my mother :-(. I would love to have a home where my family experience the joy of home-made bread and to give them this experience and pass down recipe's to my children.
I need to start from the very beginning. Could anyone please recommend a very simple, basic bread recipe that I could try at home? I would appreciate it! And I love all the recipe's I've come across on this website - they all look so yummy!
I can't wait to start baking!
