Little Note about Bread

One day i brought my bread as breakfast to the office. My friend asked : “You’ve made your bread yourself? Is it possible?”
To answer question like this, i have summarized a very good post. This is a simple yet truthfull facts about bread. The original post is here.

Bread is a magical food. Thanks to the wonder of Saccharomyces cerevisiae — also known as baker’s yeast — a dusty pile of flour and a splash of water can be transformed into the staff of life itself: a crunchy, chewy, nutritious versatile, and delicious loaf.
You don’t need any special equipment or expert baking skills, just a bit of patience and elbow grease.
Bread is a surprisingly forgiving food—it may be magical, but you don’t have to be a magician to make it. The cardinal sin is probably adding too much flour, which leads to a heavy, tough loaf. A good rule of thumb is one part water to three parts flour, though this will vary depending on the type of flour you use and even, to a lesser extent, on the weather.

A day that starts with toasted homemade bread is bound to be a good day indeed.
