How To Make Your Own Bread

This is such a great and helpful post! Simple Dollar has written up very detailed instructions, complete with pictures, about how he makes his homemade bread. As a single person, I often times will buy a loaf of bread and unless I eat bread for every meal the whole week (no fun in that!), I usually end up wasting the bread because it ends up going bad. Reasons why it’s great to make your own bread:

1. It’s cheaper
2. You can control the portion size so less goes to waste
3. You can experiment with adding different spices….mmm garlic bread!
4. There’s no preservatives or harmful additives in homemade bread

The only reason I can see why not to make your own bread is the time it takes to make it. Maybe on a lazy Sunday afternoon I can try this recipe and have bread for the rest of the week! Simple Dollar’s post makes it seem like it’s not too difficult!

Wow the instructions on that site are complicated. I’ve been making No Knead Bread once a week for a couple of weeks and it’s way easy. The only ingredients you need is flour, water, salt, and yeast. It takes planning a day ahead since you have to let it sit for 12 hours, but after that it’s delicious.

Thats the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard of. You can buy a top of the line breadmaker for $130-180, and the bread comes out perfect, exactly as good as homemade. Just add ingredients and wait a few hours, or do it over night.

Hand kneeding bread dough is for old italian grandmas, not for the young ipod using go-getters that make up our shitty generation.

Haha frugal through and through, that one is. But if you actually eat bread with any regularity, the thing will pay for itself in a few months, especially if you buy bread from Whole Foods or Wild Oats or one of the other hippie-granola rapists that charge you $11 for half a Kiwi.

I grew up with one of those machines, and let me tell you once you eat some of that warm bread straight form the oven, you’ll never go back. Go with a Panasonic model.
