Lesson 1

Because I have been making bread for over 5 years, I thought I was beyond this site's bread lessons. But after creating yet another, dense, tastless loaf, I thought I'd give them a try. I found that I was adding too much flour and that I wasn't kneading for nearly long enough.
I am very happy with my first loaf from lesson #1. My hubby says it's my best loaf ever! I plan to make up another this week, before I move onto lesson #2.

I'm glad to hear the loaf came out well.

"The wetter the better" tends to be the rule. I made some rolls last night that were so moist I had to keep dunking my hands in flour just to shape them. I was afraid I'd gone overboard, but they turned out wonderful.
