Baking Bread Blindfolded!

Ha! Well, the title is a bit misleading. I don’t think I could bake bread blindfolded, but I do have my base recipe for bread memorized. I am so proud of myself!

2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 cup plus 3 Tbsp of water (optionally includes 1-2 Tbsp of honey or molasses or OJ)
12 oz of flour
1 tsp sea salt
1 – 2 tsp instant yeast

That’s been my base recipe for making bread dough in the bread machine for months, and I can’t believe I can throw the ingredients in without looking at my notebook! Never in a million years would I think I’d be saying that!

I’ve always hated baking, too much precise measuring! But now I actually have a sort-of routine and it’s so much easier. I am starting to understand the whole process, and am having a little bit of fun too! Ha! Who would have thunk it!

  1. Yes you did, Pen! haha.

    I can’t believe how much I am enjoying baking now. Not just yeast bread, but other quick breads as well. I would probably bake cakes and other desserts if they weren’t so darn sugary!

    Thankfully, the ole breadman is still chugging along but I have the Zoji in my Amazon shopping cart, watching the price.

    Right now, it’s down $30 to just about $210. And the Zo mini is $170. I am hoping they go even lower now that it’s fall, and close to the holidays.
