I make my bread the really old fashioned way  by hand . Most people now a days use bread machine ,which is something I haven't
the luxury of having  ; but I believe in learning by doing hands on experience  . My bread doesn't come out perfect  and sometimes
the yeast  doesn't make the dough rise to it's fullest  . Making it  at home doesn't mean factory results , but I am down with getting
the experience of bread making under my belt .  Maybe I am a gluten for punishment when it comes  to bread making ?Laughing

 I also make homemade bread,no bread machine here.I do let my kitchen maid mixer do the hard work.I also preheat my oven to 200 degrees and keep the oven door open for a few minutes to cool off a little.I place the bread dough in the oven to proof.In the cold weather you get drafts and that slows down the dough from rising and also with the air conditioning in the summer,same problem.You can also put a pan of warm water in the bottom of the oven during proofing,this will also help with rising.There is nothing that smells better than bread baking in the oven.My neighbors are always asking my son,"What is your Mom making that smells so good?"

i made some cinnamon Swirl Loaf  this time  turned on my oven to compensate  for the temperature difference , after I finished
making the dough I sat  the bowl on top   of my stove  and let it rise unitl double in bulk it seemed to work out better .
I wonder sometimes  when the dough doesn't rise if maybe I killed the yeast  or something . I knew something wasn't right when
it didn't rise   like it should . Or the apartment wasn't warm enough for it to do so  and the temperature outside was colder .

I use my bread machine up to the dough cycle only. I still make bread from scratch using my great-great-grandmother's recipe so I couldn't bake it in the machine anyway. The recipe makes about 6 loaves of bread and if you cut the recipe down they never turn out.
The bread machine is great for mixing since kneading the dough gets harder with age.

Since my sons moved out I haven't made much homemade bread, but I can smell that delicious aroma just by reading these posts!

I used to make bread from scratch too. Then when the Bread Machine Craze came, I bought a bread machine. I never liked the bread as much as when it was made in the oven.  The machine was great for quick, but now that I am retired, homemade from scratch is back!

I used to help my Grandmother make the bread for a week.  Usually it was sixteen loaves.  She used her big turkey roaster to let the bread dough rise on an old radiator heater.  Then she  got out her  sixteen bread pans and cut the dough into sixteen equal portions.  Then she proofed them on top of the radiator.  It took a good portion of the day but it sure was worth it.  The smells would make my tongue hang out in anticipation of the hot bread coming out of the oven.  I never did the math until later in life but our family used two loaves a day, that would only be fourteen.  I asked Grandmother what happened to the other two loaves of bread and she told me that they always went to a family less fortunate.  Not only did she teach me to bake she also taught me how to share.

I have had a bread machine and we loved the bread. I now make it the old fashioned way because the machine was used to often and gave out. Needless to say we don't have homemade bread as often.

I used to make my own bread.  Four loaves every week.  I loved it but haven't done it in years now.  Kids are all grown and just the two of us now.

I love the smell of fresh baked bread - and even better is eating it when it comes out of the oven with a little bit of butter.  YUM  YUM

I, too, make homemade bread the old fashioned way.  I guess it is hereditary because my grandma did too....every single day!!!

I had a great friend named Mary who taught me how to make homemade bread.  The yield was six loaves from one packet of yeast.  At the time I was making bread, we had a wood burning stove in our family room which was in line with my kitchen.  The bread would rise so beautifully!

I finally broke down and bought a bread machine but have since given up making much bread since my husband and I began to put on some unwanted weight.  There are so many great ways to make bread in the machine and I was constantly coming up with new combinations of nuts and seeds. 

I only use the bread machine now to make my pizza doughs.

I, like others, can almost smell that homemade bread baking now!

I love making bread from scratch but it does take a lot of time.  The great part of making your own is that you know exactly what's in it.  I started baking my own bread when I was pregnant with my first child since the commercial bread had too much sugar in it.  He's 38  now so I've been doing it a long time LOL.  Makes the house smell so great!

Good for you Eva. Ther is nothing like homemade bread fresh from the oven with melted butter on the heel while still hot. Celebrate the personal baking for all others who have the pleasure of tasting it will remember it for a long time.

For some real great bread recipes, check out http://www.kingarthurflour.com They have several no knead breads as well.  I get quite a few recipes from that site.  But King Arthur Flour is known for their bread flour so you expect some pretty good bread recipes.  Both sweet and savory.  And the Sticky Buns or Cinnamon Rolls...you just have to check it out.
