Making Bread From Scratch

Making Bread From Scratch


I don’t often dive in to a blogging challenge, but I found one this week that I am truly going to enjoy. Money Saving Mama is hosting a week of blogging “Make it from scratch”. Well, howdy, I love making things from scratch!!

In the last year, I have really become proficient at making breads from scratch. Not only does it save me per loaf, but it’s the best way to control what is going into our bread.


Buttermilk Biscuits

These biscuits are straight from the south and ready for sausage gravy topping, your favorite preserves, or the stuffing for breakfast sandwiches.

The trick with these is to not over beat the wet ingredients into the dry, to gently pat out the dough for cutting, and don’t twist the cutter till you hit the counter.



Dinner Rolls

These rolls are straight from my German ancestry. These are the rolls that my grandmother would make for dinner rolls of all kinds. I use them for hotdog and hamburger buns as well as a variety of dinner rolls.

These do use yeast, but are very forgiving with the use of hot tap water doesn’t kill the yeast off.



French Bread

This bread is also a yeast bread and requires 2 rise sessions, but is fairly easy to get the hang of! I whipped up a batch that makes 2 loaves just this afternoon 🙂

We turn these loaves into ‘ultimate sandwiches’ and garlic bread.
