Bread / Home-Made Bread Too Heavy
« on: September 12, 2011, 04:40:16 am »
Hi all, since I got my TMX about a year ago and started baking my own bread I'm pleased to say that I have not bought a single loaf or bun as my own efforts have been so successful  :)

I find the trick to keeping the home-made effort sustainable whilst being a busy working Mum is baking three loaves at a time (I invested in three tins) then slicing and freezing so I have a constant supply.

Only problem I have:  DH complains that my bread is too heavy.  It doesn't matter which recipe I use, he says they're all too heavy and not light and soft like shop-bought bread.  He loves my bread toasted (Cyndi O'Meara's Bible Bread gives The Best crunch) but he doesn't like the home-made bread fresh for sandwiches/rolls.

As I don't want to use any store-bought bread improvers because I have some question marks over the ingredients I wonder what other people do/use to help bread to be lighter/fluffier/airier?

Thanks in advance for any hints  :)

Bread / Bake At Home Style Dinner Rolls
« on: September 19, 2010, 01:27:07 am »
Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me with a recipe for 'bake at home' style bread?  By this I mean the packaged bread you can often buy in supermarkets that's been partially cooked which goes in the oven for just a few minutes when you're ready to eat it.

I've got house guests this week, but will be working some days, so I'm trying to pre-prepare what I can for meals during the week.

Thanks in advance  :)
