Lets talk about bread, what is your favorite bread? What's your staple bread? Dessert bread? Bread or dead, the gluten intolerant will be shot on sight.

As for me I always have a loaf of potato bread, and my favorite is molasses bread

I rarely eat bread but when I do, it's artisan bread produced at a local bakery.

Actually only when I visit my mother. Oh and sometimes brioche or sourdough, but even those are better from one of the billion artisan bakeries within walking distance of her house. I mean seriously. Sourdough fruitbread is amazing but there's a guy who does a variety of breads who got a german master baker to cover for him when he went on holiday. He found the guy had bought vanilla extract instead of pods and was like "You're fired, get the fuck out my sight".

bread with stuff inside it is the peak of human cookery. It's impossible to improve upon but there's still infinite possible variations on the basic bread with stuff inside it formula. When you think about it, most of what we eat is bread with stuff inside it.

High in fiber

Pairs well with peanut butter

Pasties are awesome. Burritos can be pretty good and kebabs are amazing if you get them in Germany or somewhere close by tender marinaded lamb on a fresh ciabbatta rather than some squirrel and turkey that's been grilling in elephant leg form for a week finally shaved out it's misery and put into a soggy pitta). A calzone is just a pizza folded in half, fuck you if you don't like pizza. I pity you.

However that guy was making a dumb post. Those things exist and none of them are bread like bread. Except Calzone.

I just bake my own bread every week. It's not hard and I know what is going into it. People be lazy, yo. You ever make a decent meal for yourself? then you can spend time making a loaf of bread or two. Plus it makes the whole apartment block smell amazing. I got laid once by giving this chick some fresh made foccacia bread. I mean that alone didn't do it but it got my foot in the door and got us talking. Bitches love bread.

I cook most of my own food, mostly from scratch, or as scratch as is reasonable, but it's very rare that I actually have it in me to make bread. It's an all day pain-in-the-ass of kneading and dusting with flour and resting and kneading again and resting and kneading and dusting and on and on and on. I often think it would be a different story if I had a stand mixer, but I'd really rather just buy an artisan loaf from the store

what, are you kidding? since when is "dusting" even necessary, really. nevermind more than once

put water, yeast, flour and sugar in a bowl. mix it together, knead it for 10-15 minutes and leave it to prove

fuck off, come back 3 hours later

knead it again, put it in the contain itll be baked in, leave it another hour

come back, jam it in the oven

most of the time that goes into making bread isnt even hands on, its like...zero effort, just a bit of commitment. Honestly its absurdly easy, its just like going outside, in the sense that to apathetic people it seems like some sort of colossal endavour..then you actually do it and its like "fuck this is great, why am i not doing this more often"

During the kneading process, unless you like trying to scrape bread dough off your counter top.

this is about the consistency of the dough, if you mix it right theres no need at all for excess flour. Unless we're talking brioche but who exactly makes brioche for the hell of it. also, olive oil. again, not that its needed if you get your ratios right.

so youre trying to assert a difference between "easy" and "effortless"? i think youll find we're juggling synonyms.

I've heard this from people before, I have had no success in replicating it. Not saying it's wrong, just not as trivial as its made out to be

>so youre trying to assert a difference between "easy" and "effortless"?
I'm saying something can be easy to do but still be a pain in the ass, there is a distinction to be made. Kneading dough by hand is mindlessly easy, but it is a pain in the ass having to stand there folding and pressing and folding and pressing and christ help you if the consistency of the dough isn't perfect. It's finicky and laborious. Something like, I dunno, a pork chop or a pasta sauce is easy to make and not really a pain in the ass at all, just timing and heat control

well if you ever had the interest to stick with it, practice makes perfect. generally its pretty easy to overestimate how much water you need. I can say this from experience since while you are mixing the water in, it can appear drier than it is simply because the moisture has not yet been fully mixed in and incorporated throughout by kneading. I used to do this with my pastry too, before i got in the habit of kneading just a tiny bit before the point where i think i ought to add a bit more moisture

but also one of these things is a godsend, mines pretty similar except the smaller "straight" edge is actually properly straight. So long as you have a smooth surface it can make short work any kinda sloppy doughs or dough currently in a state of disarray because of eggs or water being incorporated into it

theyre cheap as hell

i honestly havent heard that phrase used before. are you talking about when you make a "starter" by mixing yeast with just enough warmed milk/water to submerse it, with a few tablespoons of flour and a nip of sugar? in order to get the yeast activated and give it a head-start, and to also check whether your fresh yes (or otherwise) is, in actual fact, still fresh and active?

because if so, it smells amazing and speeds up the breadmaking process and its a nice way to get your yeast going and to check whether it still "works", but other than that...it isnt exactly needed.

a "brew day"? do you work in some sort of distillery? if you have access to fresh yeast or yeast-like substance that sounds amazing. As an enthused baker id like to experiment with this sort of thing. Even fresh yeast is hard to acquire around here and i usually need to sweet-talk the workers in the bakery section at a nearby supermarket...which has varying success since they arent really supposed to

always try to add "not enough" water when youre initially mixing it into the flour just before kneading, you can always add a bit more moisture and some viscosity by cracking an egg or some butter into the thing. My favorite and most obedient blend of flour to work with is about 4/5 strong white and 1/5 rye

You may know it by the name "poolish". There's another name for it too that's made drier. Similar to a sourdough starter but it's not sour and usually done one day in advance. There's a guy making no knead bread.on YouTube that makes it look great and easy. Makes the dough the night before with little yeast, never punches it down just reforms it for the secondary proof

I think I just need practice. To contribute to the thread, I'd say learn pizza dough first. It's super forgiving and gives you the opportunity to get a feel for dough

Nah, I just homebrew a lot of beer. You may have seen me post my brewing rig on here before. My roommate does work at a microbrewery though, so fresh yeast is always an option.

Speaking if which, instead of asking bakers for yeast, find a local microbrewery and ask them. Brewers almost always have huge amounts of slurry around that they'll more than likely be happy to just give you. You might even be able to get them to top-crop some fresh from the fermenter.

thisll have to count, i mean it is bread dough of a sort...very soft plain flour with minimal kneading, and cream cheese and butter to give it some tenderness. Whipped up some frangipane, froze and then grated it so it wouldnt lose its shape right away, and then filled the thing up, plaited it and baked.

kinda meant to scatter more roast almond over it before icing, but i forgot
