Anyone into making homemade breads? I used to make dark whole wheat breads and sweet rolls. Nothing is as good as fresh bread from your own oven. I was wondering how many people these days actually make their own breads on a regular basis. It seems that even the cheaper loaves of brown bread at the store is getting rather expensive - $2+ for a loaf. It is much cheaper to make your own.

I make my own. Most breads at the stores contain high fructose corn syrup and other chemicals I try to avoid. The ones that don't cost $3 and up so it is much cheaper (and tastier!) to make my own. I am not sure if I would be in to it if I didn't have my stand mixer! That takes the work out of it since it does all of the kneading for me. I get a lot of my recipes from the King Arthur Flour website.

I make alot of homemade bread, mostly italian and french rolls. I have had a bread machine for several years and use it mostly to make doughs that I then roll out and shape myself. I just recently found a recipe for making our bagels. My family loves them. I would like to make more homemade sandwich bread but my boys complain they don't like how it tastes. Oh well.

I use my bread machine a lot for making dough, I love home made pizza. White bread I make the most of. Occasionally I have made rye and cinnamon raisin. I think I would make different kinds if they didn't call for so many ingredients.

I love homemade bread. I'm just OK at making it. I don't have time to do it regularly so I stress over it. But it's so good! I always eat too much!

We love home made bread, but the Kids dont really care for *dark* bread, so i make white bread.

Anyone got a recipe for not a dark bread? Like maybe a half and half ?

Jasmin, have you ever tried the white whole wheat flour? I know King Arthur makes one, I am sure other flour companies do too, however KA is the only brand that makes it that is available at my grocery store. It looks slightly brown but doesn't have that heavier whole wheat taste/feel. I also will take a regular white bread recipe and do half whole wheat flour and half all purpose flour. You may need to use a little extra water when adding WW flour to a white bread recipe.

I've been making almost all of my own bread since around 1990. I used to do all the kneading by hand; now I have a bread machine that I use on the dough cycle for mixing and kneading.

I use a sourdough starter now that I've had since 1996. I make sandwich bread, french, italian, focaccia, ciabbatta, syrian, practically anything.

Now if I'm sick or something and have to buy bread I just can't stand store-bought anymore. It has no texture and smells like chemicals.
