Things to Consider

Begin with a simple recipe. Many types of bread only require four ingredients: flour, water, and salt.

Use common sense and your experience to follow the directions. It is a shame to say, but it is important to throw out many outdated recipes. You can make bread and recipe writing so much easier by keeping your cookbooks up-to-date. Bread baking will always be subject to slight variations due to the moisture content of your flour.

Keep track. Learn how to monitor the temperature of the dough, water, and ambient temperature. Keep track of the steps taken and record them on the recipe’s sidebar or in a notebook. Baking bread will be a regular task. You may forget to add two tablespoons of water or reduce the salt.
