A free forum!!! no dough in advance =)~

It's been a life long dream of mine to learn to bake bread from scratch. I watch with envy when I see someone with flour up to their elbows, kneading and punching a raw ball of dough.

Here I hope experienced bakers will share their talents and that newbies will feel comfortable asking the questions.

The only bread I've ever baked from scratch was Sister Schubert's Parkerhouse Rolls and then the cinnamon rolls from the same book. It was a lot of work but so worth the effort.

One Christmas a few years ago, Connie and I made the cinnamon rolls. We doubled the recipe because we knew they'd be awesome. We had to use my cafeteria size dining room table to roll out the dough. You should have seen us!!! On man were they good! Thank goodness I had a big sheet of plastic to cover the table with.

I have the book in my possession and am willing to scan any of the recipes for any that are interested.

Edited 2/13/2010 After giving this much thought I changed my mind about scanning the book. It's copyrighted and I don't want to break any laws here.

Sister Schuberts sells a blueberry pan of sweet rolls that are wonderful.

they dont sell them in our grocery, but in GA we could also find orange rolls too.
yum yum

love this! I love making bread and have won a few prizes doing it. I use to have some pictures of some of my creations but I can't seem to find them? I do use my bread machines usually to the dough stage just cause it is faster, but then I shape by hand and bake.

I find most of my recipes on All Recipes.

Being Italian I love talking about bread!

thanks Becky. I was thinking about something I wanted to learn to do.

I'm so green, I wasnt sure if you could use the breadmaker to get you to a certain point and then finish on your own. ie., this raisin bread we made. it said add cinnamon at the beginning, so then it was all mixed in the dough instead of having that fun swirl of cinnamon. I guess you just have to experiment.

and I'd love to learn to make sourdough!

Susan, is Oster a good brand? (can we say product names in here?)

Anna, those are beautiful! I will not be making bread till the weekend so my pics will be up then. I'll try and take step by step photos.

nannie,
my first machine that was given to me is an Hitachi. I am still using it and my friend got it at a Goodwill store that was 5 years ago. The new one I bought on Ebay is a Breadman, but my friend who faithfully makes bread every morning cause she has 7 children says that every breadman she has had has died after justa few uses. Now I do not use mine everyday and I like the breadman but I have to say I like the Hitachi better.

Whatever you do get one that makes a 2 pound loaf, they make smaller ones and they are not as practicle for things like large amount of dough for rolls or pizza crust.

I will try and get to that today; gonna be a busy one. Actually, it is the topping that "makes" them. There is a bread recipe with it, I tried it once and didn't like it because it was more like a foccacia (sp???) than a bread like I thought it would be. Soooo.......I cheated and use Rhodes rolls. LOL I am going to make them Friday for a group get-together Friday night. I'm debating whether to use the frozen dough again or my own bread recipe. We'll see.
