Bread Recipe
Here in Texas some or most BBQ joints serve homemade bread. Does anybody have a good recipe for homemade bread?

Thanks in advance!

What kind you looking for? White, wheat, rye, other? Kneaded, or no-knead? Starter, or none? Details, please. :grin:

Damn you just went right over my head!!
I'll say white but have no idea what the rest is.

I have a really nice recipe for a round loaf of rustic country white bread that requires no kneading. I make it in a cast iron dutch oven, and it is bangin'. I'll PM you the recipe, if you like. :wink:

Starter is a base for making bread that uses a wild yeast fermentation. You see it with sourdough and Amish friendship breads. Gives the bread a very distinct flavor and texture. Starter will keep growing and growing forever, if you let it. Some bread companies have been using starters that were started more than 100 years ago, and they keep right on growing it.

Kneading is the method of pushing and stretching the dough to make sure that it rises properly. Some breads require some fairly vigorous kneading, and some don't require any at all. Depends on what you're looking for.

I bake all my own breads haven't bough any in years, Give this a try it is easy, flavorful, and works good on a busy schedule.

Texas Sweet Sourdough Bread Recipe

For the starter
1 package dry yeast
5 1/2 cups warm water
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons potato flakes (must be flakes)

To Use
1 cup starter
1 1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 tablespoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
9 cups (at least) bread flour (yes, bread flour)


Make the starter

Mix ingredients and place in a large glass jar set in a nice sunny or warm place for at least 4 hours. Mixture will become foamy and you will hear hissing from the lid of the jar. Pour off 1 cup of the mixture. At this point you can put this in another glass jar and refrigerate both jars or you can make some bread:

To use:

Mix together to form stiff dough and knead with hands until smooth and elastic. Place in a bowl oil the top and cover with plastic wrap. This can sit overnight in a warm place. Next day punch down fashion two loaves and place in greased/floured bread pans. Allow to rise until the dough is 3/4 " above the pans. Bake at 400/425 degrees for about 30 minutes.

Every time you want to make bread take the glass jar from the fridge and Feed starter again: 1 cup warm water, 1/3 cup sugar, 3 Tbsp potato flakes.

I've gone back to the NY Times video and recipe. It was originally from the Sullivan Street Bakery, but the Times' video is helpful. It's really very easy, and once you've done it one time, you'll be doing it at least once a week, it's that easy/good. Enjoy!

That's why I went to the Times' video. It gives a method of speeding it up, if you have the patience to wait through the pre-video advertisement. Apologies, as it is annoying. :tsk:

My grandmother worked in a school cafeteria her whole life and they made these almost everyday. She would visit us every summer and we couldn't wait until she would make a batch for us. It's an old fashion recipe that requires some effort but the end result is wonderful.

2 cups warm milk (100* F)
2 pkg. rapid rise yeast
3 heaping Tbls. sugar
2 heaping Tbls. shortening
1 1/h tsp. salt
5 cups all-purpose flour, or as needed

Pour milk into a large mixing bowl, and sprinkle yeast over the surface. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Mix in the sugar and salt; blend thoroughly. Add in the shortening; gradually stir in the flour to make a soft dough.

Put a little flour on the work surface and knead for 3 to 4 min.

Transfer to a slightly greased bowl, cover with a dish towel and set in a warm place until dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.

Grease a baking pan, and put a little grease on your hands. Pinch off dough into tennis ball size rolls and place side by side in the pan.

Cover and set in a warm place and allow to rise for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 400* F and bake in preheated oven until tops turn golden brown, about 20 minutes. When rolls are finished baking, drizzle melted butter over the top, and serve warm.
