Hello fellow bread bakers
I just started to get the itch to bake my own bread as I never get to stop by my local bread shop as it is the wrong way home. I started with a honey wheat pizza dough recipe that I have made the dough but not baked yet as I was not ready for it. I did make 2 loaves of "Quick rise bread" from the Kitchen Aid mixer book we got with our mixer several years ago. When I made both items the dough didn't look like I see on peoples pictures, mine seemed to be rough and lumpy. I think I had the right feel as far as tacky ness but I had a fair amount of dry ingredients still in the bottom of the bowl when I thought I kneeded them enough. I will be baking the quick rise tonight when I get home from work as I finished making the dough at 11 last night and didn't have the energy to stay up and baking it.
I hope it turns out good as I have so many breads in my head that I want to make, espceially what I refer to as a chopping block bread. The local copps and pick n save sell it with parmesan and olives, it is like a pull apart bread.
