Bread Making

Today we were supposed to go on a field trip to a local bakery with our homeschool group. But, frankly, KitMama and I have been so over-loaded with the "other stuff" going on in our family's lives, we just did not have the gumption to pack all six kids into the car and drive an hour (one way) to see how bread is made. Especially since we already make bread at home. So, we skipped the tour, stayed home, and Michael made some bread, mostly on his own with a little direction from me.

Carefully measuring out the flour using the "scoop and scrape" method.

Mixing the wet and the dry.

Kneading the dough.

Rolling out pieces for....

...the twist (ready to bake).

The rest of the dough went into "twisty-topped loaf".

Michael used a very basic, very easy bread recipe that I'd gotten from our larger homeschool group a few years ago. It's pretty much one of those can't-miss recipes, as you can see. And very, very yummy! Nope. No leftovers ;)

  1. Monique, this just shows that the mystery of breadmaking is not so mysterious. Seven year olds can do it.
