Wow, Thanks so much..with my inexperience, I had believed it was better to err on the side of over rising. Thanks so much for replying..I’ve only started baking white loaves of bread, and rolls. But, it’s just amazing to have homemade bread, and how it actually affects your family in such a positive way. I’m addicted!!! I’m going to give it another try…..will let you know how it goes!!! I’m going to try Rose’s recipe for brioche, a little more advanced for me, but I’m feeling adventurous…....Shirin
I’m new at this too, but I’ve been at it off and on for a couple of years. So much to learn! I’m doing mostly sourdough right now; and since I rarely eat sandwiches, I don’t make sandwich loaves. Instead, I’m doing the “hearth baking” thing with free-standing loaves. The bread stales so fast that I’ve taken to making smaller loaves and throwing most of them in the freezer. I’ve gotten a lot better with my dough, but my shaping is still poor.
If you’re going to make brioche, the best recipe is the one for cinnamon rolls. Yum.
