Making homemade bread can seem intimidating, which is why most of us opt for store bought bread. But nothing is as warm and inviting as a delicious, homemade loaf of bread. Bread is not difficult to make, it just takes a little precision and patience. The ingredients must be portioned correctly, and the slightest alteration to ingredients could cause a headache. Here is quick how to list for making bread that warms the soul, without leaving you frustrated.
1. Fluff up the flour
Use a spoon to gently stir up the flour. This is especially important if you’re scooping the flour directly from the bag, where it tends to get tightly packed.
2. Spoon into a measuring cup
Instead of scooping the flour directly from the bag or container, use a spoon to fill the measuring cup, mounding it a bit on top.
3. Level it off
Draw the straight edge of a knife or spatula across the top of the measuring cup to level it off and remove excess flour.
