Learn How to Make Bread: Giveaway

Earlier this week I mentioned how food prices were rising but packages were shrinking. One way to avoid getting ripped off is by making food from scratch, a pound of flour is a pound of flour no matter how you package it.

One of my favorite foods to make from scratch is bread. There is nothing better than a warm slice of bread fresh from the oven! Several years ago I invested in a grain mill and started grinding my own wheat in order to have fresh whole wheat flour. There is a huge difference between store bought whole wheat flour and fresh ground whole wheat flour, but I digress.

A few months ago I was asked to try BreadClass.com, an online class that teaches you everything you could ever want to know about making bread. Since my entire family is addicted to fresh bread I was excited to learn more about our favorite food. Even after making my own bread for 6 years I learned a lot from the class. The instructor, Lori, is a wonderful teacher. She explains everything clearly, and even someone who doesn’t know how to bake a potato will be making homemade bread after watching the lessons.

There are twelve lessons, each about 10 minutes long. In the beginning you will learn the anatomy of a grain of wheat and by the end of the class you will be making speciality loaves. Accompanying the class is the book No More Bricks. I thoroughly enjoyed going through this book and I learned  several new things about grain. My favorite part of the book is the section on the various grains. I loved learning about the history of grain and finally learned why Kamut, my personal favorite grain is so expensive! (It is a licensed product and distribution is limited)

The book contains four basic recipes for bread and then numerous variations. I love this book because it is well written, you aren’t wondering what the author means when they tell you to do something. It also has loads of pictures. As I said before, I’m a visual learner and No More Bricks is full of black and white photos to help you make that perfect loaf of bread. Anyone from a novice to a pro will learn something from this book. I now have several new recipes to try and a few new techniques.

If you are interested in learning how to make a better loaf of bread, I highly recommend  No More Bricks and BreadClass.com. Even if you have very little baking experience you will be able to make beautiful loaves of bread after watching a few lessons.

I have one BreadClass.com online class to give away and one copy of the No More Bricks ebook. To enter leave a comment sharing your favorite type of bread. My favorite is the basic honey wheat. Yum! Giveaway ends April 10, 2011.

  5. I love cinnamon sugar bread! I just bought a KitchenAid Pro-6 and would LOVE some new recipes to try!

  6. Carrie Thompson says:

  7. Alyssa Daneri says:

    My favorite is honey wheat.

  8. Fran Wolfe says:

    Mmmm, I love any bread with raisins and nuts!! 🙂

  9. I am an equal opportunity bread enthusiast… to me, bread is bread, and it is ALL delightfully yummy!!! Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  10. Jennifer D says:

    I too love Honey Wheat!! But my husbands favorite is store bought White bread. 🙁 I need to get better at baking bread so I can bake him a better tasting bread!

  11. I love ALL bread, that is my downfall! though I have to say that crusty Italian bread is my all time favorite!

  12. Heidi R says:

    I love whole wheat honey bread, and love to experiment with things like millet, flax, spelt etc… to give good flavors and textures. I make bread at least once a week, more if the hubby is especially sandwich hungry!!

  13. Starla J. says:

    We love country white bread and cinnamon bread…warm from the oven with butter!!! =) Thank you for hosting the giveaway!

  14. Renee B. says:

    Cinnamon raisin will always be my fav!

  15. Staci R. says:

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  18. Brenda H says:

    I love banana bread and cinnamon bread – yummo!!

  19. Courtney says:

    My favorite is hawiaan sweet! Yum!

  20. To be honest, dealing with yeast scares me (will it rise? how long will it take? is our house too cold?…) so I would love to learn and put my fears to rest! When I make bread it’s in my 14 year old bread machine, which still makes yummy stuff!

  21. Katie Nix says:

    I love Ezekiel bread. Now we just need the grain grinder.

  22. Oh my word!! I love bread (I eat it several times a day) but I have never made my own unless you count banana bread or zucchini bread… I feel like those are more like cakes tho! Honestly I’m scared to make bread straight up in the oven – I am afraid it would be ugly, or dense or whatever. I seriously didn’t think making decent bread w/o a bread machine was possible! my favorite breads to eat are French bread, Rye bread and Monkey Bread (which again is kinda a bread-cheat!)! Thanks for the chance to win a breadmaking class – anyone who knows me knows this would be right up my alley 🙂

  23. I usually make white and wheat rolls, and we use them for deli sandwiches or as a side with dinner. We are all addicted to bread around here and I would love to expand and start making new kinds.

  24. I love honey wheat or oatmeal bread, but occassionally I’ll make rosemary bread like at Maccaroni Grill. So yummy!

  25. MeliMayhem says:

    We LOVE bread in my house. We love to make banana nut, pumpkin, and cornbread, mainly because these are all easy make recipes, hahaha. However, we are a home school family and making bread the “real” way is something I’ve been wanting to teach the kids! I’d love to learn how!

  26. My favorite is sour dough but I love to try to make all different kinds.

  27. Pick one favorite bread! Wow..that is hard. I love them ALL. A good Sourdough is always a winner 🙂

    I made round loaves of Irish Brown bread once and it was very good. Thank you.

  37. I love French bread and this oat bread I find at my grocery store. I can’t recall if it is the store brand or not. Whichever it may be, I love the taste and texture, and it makes great toast!

  38. My favorite is white or wheat… because that’s all I can make. White or wheat bricks that is. I could sure use lessons! I’ve tried and tried and tried and can’t get bread baking down. 🙁

  39. I make a bread similar to the bread at Longhorn Steak House and it is my favorite. I would love the online class. I need extra help I have made some failures!

  40. Isabel Acosta says:

    My favorite home made bread is Honey whole wheat. It is awesome right out of the oven with butter on it or plain.

  73. I love a great multigrain bread with sunflower seeds. So delicious toasted and topped with peanut butter.

    I could really use this. My last attempt at bread… well it shrunk instead of rising… and it had a slight green hue once it was cooked. It was so hard even the birds didn’t peck at it. I think maybe the yeast was old. lol

  79. Really our family loves all things bread! But my personal favorite is warm french bread. Drooling just thinking about it! I would love to get more comfortable with bread making.

However, I’m a bread newbie, so I’d love to win this class and book. My WW French has turned out hard more often than soft and yummy. 🙁 I agree with you TOTALLY about feeding my family better. I have 5 under 10 and another due in 6 months. We eat as well as we can and stay away from as much processed food as possible. I got a KitchenAid mixer last Christmas hoping that I could get homemade bread into my weekly routine, but it never happened. Maybe this can be the boost I need! Thanks!

  84. I LOVE bread! I make a pretty decent italian bread and a honey whole wheat bread, but would like to make a whole wheat sandwhich bread.

  85. monica huff says:

  100. Rebecca L. says:

    I love all breads! Anything with nuts or chocolate (lol), love whole grains. I have a bread machine I bought used and it came with the original book and recipes.

I have been trying to figure out if we need to invest in a bread machine or how hard is it to do by hand…THANKS!
