While my parents were here a few weeks ago I finally went to work with my Mom on learning how to make her delicous homemade bread. Usually when they come to visit Fer and I ask her to make a few loaves for us so we can have them (at least for a few days) after they go home. Well enough of that now I can make it MYSELF whenever I want. Yeah! It wasn't to hard either but I'm always freaked out by making anything with yeast. No more fears. Here's how the process went and also the family recipe.
mix the warm water and yeast until the yeast gets bubbly or changes in appearance
using the dough hook add the flour until it all comes together
it has to go thru a few rising process - one all together in a greased bowl and the second rising in the loaf pans they will bake in
and VOILA! Ta da - YUMMOOOOOOO
