Homemade BreadThis is such a great easy recipe and a good one for folks who are just now getting started making their own bread. With a minimum of ingredients, this bread turns out to be almost as good as the artisan type breads that have become so popular.

A mix of healthy ingredients for your bird, baked into a bread, and served warm every day. My birds love it and will gobble it right up; and I like it because it's healthy for the birds.

I'm not a good baker, so I keep trying different bread recipes. The bread turns out not even close to the bread I had when I was a kid. Can't I just make bread with sugar, yeast, oil, and water?

My son always eats up the bread I make, but I think it sucks! I want the plain bread that my Grandma used to make, with few ingredients and it turns out heavenly. Thanks.

You are right bread recipes are simple and easy to make and should be as good as the bread that grandma made. I have had issue in the past with the yeast and the bread not rising correctly. Homemade bread takes a lot of work and kneading the dough before it is set aside to rise the first time. That is the real key to making a good loaf of homemade bread. I don't think it is the recipe you are using, it may be more you are killing the yeast or not activating it correctly. You need the right temperature of water to do this and if it is too hot or too cold it will not work at all.

Second, the kneading process is what makes or breaks a loaf of bread. You will need to spend a good amount of time kneading the bread before you put it to rise the first time. The second kneading is not as important as the first. When kneading the bread use the kitchen table and not the sink where you are working. Put down a breadboard and stand above the bread while kneading the bread. This way you have a better bread in the end. I think your recipe is fine it will just take a bit of learning how to get it adjusted correctly. You will need almost a complete day to make bread.

I've got a better idea: go to the Fleischman's site. They have enough recipes to keep you going for a long time starting with plain good old fashioned plain bread with excellent instructions.

There are many of my family & friends who bake their own bread. I have found that each person has to find their own unique recipe. We all have tried each other's recipes and have adapted what works best for us. I will post my recipe in another feedback.
