    I bought one of those toaster ovens with the fan, a true sour bread reheating essential if you dont like to always heat up the big gas oven in the summer. California cheese was awesome this year.

    So ~mikey if you REALLY want to get serious about baking bread add one of these to your tool box:



    Brod & Taylor Folding Proofer & Slow Cooker

    This bread proofer is awesome. Maybe you've got a good spot already for proofing but in my house there really wasn't one. Works like a charm. I get a good rise every time and it folds up to the size of a baking sheet for easy storage. Both King Arthur and Williams Sonoma carry it. If you aren't signed up with WS you can get a 15% off code for your first purchase.

    Another thing to consider if you really want to get into the chemistry of baking plus get some great recipes is:



    The Bread Baker's Apprentice



    Happy baking!

    We've been going through 2-3 loaves a week and I've got some of my stay-at-home-mommy harem on the program. I've even got some of the boys baking bread. Their chicks dig it.

    The girls were stoked. All of them are bread fiends. Sent them off with their mamas with a jar of starter.

    So their fathers were okay with it when they told them that they were going to Jr's so he could help them put a bun in the oven?

    Why do so many recipes call for instant yeast?

    Look here for some explanations:

    Why is yeast added when making a sourdough recipe?

    Bread Baking (sourdough)

    Fussy little bakers over there...

    I'm keeping it simple in my kitchen. Just starter. No bread proofer. Maybe I should try the big KitchenAid mixer that sits in the corner?

    Trying sourdough buns for pigwiches tomorrow.

    Still need to try pancakes and pizza dough and biscuits.

    Simple sourdough buns. I just divided the dough into 4 balls and flattened them out about 1/2" thick. Let them rise in the covered skillet on the counter for a couple hours and baked.

    It doesn't need to be complicated. As mentioned I do have the proofer but my house is drafty and I don't want to take up the oven. I also have a Kitchen Aid (7 Quart Bowl-lift stand) which was a gift from my mother 15 years ago (edit: yanno... I bet it's closer to 20 years ago now - my how the years speed by!). I do really like using it for bread - the bread hook does a quick and thorough job of mixing/kneading.

    The mixer was a wedding gift that is rarely used. I'm going to put it into play. I usually do a couple rises that I punch down by hand but I bet that's the shit for making the dough. Our house is sorta drafty too but so far so good. Let's see what winter brings for the bread.

    Making a batch of dough is a good way to end the evening after a long rainy day. Let it sit in the fridge tonight, get up at 0400 to punch it and let it rise again and bake at 0700. Kid has a fresh loaf to take to school at 0800. His friends love it so he takes an entire loaf to share.

    Thanks KQ

    That sounds wonderful!

    When I was a kid in elementary school (way back in the last century in a school built in 1914) our lunchroom ladies would bake breads, rolls, cookies etc. in the mornings. I can still remember how wonderful it smelled. A great way to start the day!
