Book Description

Close your eyes and imagine the smell of fresh bread wafting under your nose. Are you smiling yet? One of life's greatest pleasures is sinking your teeth into a buttery slice of crusty bread, still warm from the oven.

And yet there is, especially in the United States, almost a universal carelessness about the quality and taste of the bread that we eat on a daily basis. People eat the most appalling trash imaginable, and accept it as a matter of course. The normal bread in an American household is a pasty white bread that is more air than food, devoid of nutrients, and stuffed with chemicals so it has a longer shelf life. And it tastes bad.

The recipes in this book make a homemade bread with complex flavor, no harsh yeast taste, and they require no kneading or hard work. You can have fresh, delicious bread every day, without fuss or muss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious bread January 2, 2012
In my family, we make a lot of fresh homemade bread, so I looked forward to trying out some of the recipes from this breadmaking book by Barbara Mack. We made the cinnamon rolls because my kids wouldn't allow me to pass up making that dessert recipe! They were delicious and turned out wonderfully! We also baked the Farmhouse white bread recipe. There is nothing better than homemade bread! The author also gives some tips on how to make changes to the recipes to make them healthier, if that's what you prefer. It's a terrific book, useful both for beginners in baking and those who are more experienced!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds too good to be true but it's NOT January 15, 2012

The author shows us how to easily bake our own bread. Like her, I tried kneading, weird recipes and expensive bread machines. I am impressed with the simplicity of the refrigeration method and will now enjoy fresh healthy bread without additives.

This method works...

and its easy.

4.0 out of 5 stars love to bake bread April 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The recipes in this book are great. Simple and straightforward even for a novice baker like me. A friendly word of caution to anyone new to using yeast about it failure to rise [as mentioned in one of the reviews]. I found that when this happend to me, I either had not gotten the liquid warm enough [which will fail to proof the yeast] or I had gotten the liquid too hot [which will kill the yeast before it proofs]. The cure was simple. Invest in a reliable candy thermometer or digital instant read version and heat the liquid slowly to within the exact temperature range specified in the recipe. It can differ from one recipe to another. This is imporant because yeast mixed into the flour before the warm liquid is added can withstand and often requires a higher liquid temperature than yeast that is being added directly into the warm liquid and then the liquid into the flour. I baked a lot of duds and wasted a lot of money until I learned this so I just thought I would share. Happy baking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as the title says February 9, 2012

After reading the one star reviews I was worried that I had purchased a dud, so I started working my way through the recipes. They are clearly written, easy to follow, and don't use any exotic ingredients that aren't pantry staples. I generally have my dough in the fridge 3 days before baking. I have not had any trouble with any of the recipes and have been extremely happy with the results. All the breads, rolls, and bagels have been very light and quite tasty. These are, truly, easy and fabulous breads that do not need kneading. I highly recommend this book.

I learned something new from this author and it has made such difference in my baking. I was under impression that you need 'heat' for bread to rise, in fact it tastes better if you let it rise slowly in the refrigerator. My favorites are Hawaiian bread and pinto bread. Thank you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh bread, here we come! January 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a really good book, but be sure to read the directions carefully, especially about the yeast. The only thing I do not like about this book is the recipe title will be on one page and the recipe on the next, sometimes with large breaks in between; or large space at the top of the recipe and only 1/2 of the recipe on the first page and the rest on the second page.

I'm a person who never had a good example in the kitchen growing up and, as an adult, gave up on making my own bread altogether for a long time because I could not figure out how to knead. I couldn't even get bread to work with the aid of a stand mixer/dough hook combo. Then I stumbled across this title and thought, "Meh, it's worth a try, right?"

I am SO glad I did.

While I know there's no substitute for developing gluten in your yeast bread the old fashioned way, this book is the key to bridging the gap between no bread at all and something fabulous. I've tried everything in the book except the English Muffins and every one of them have turned out wonderfully, following Mack's instructions. Sometimes I have to tweak things to make it work for my altitude/humidity combination, but all of these breads taste wonderful and are very simple to prepare. For experienced bread makers, I'm sure it's not the bread book of choice but for someone like me, it's practically miraculous. I can finally make bread!

As an ecookbook, the only thing it's lacking is an interactive table of contents and some nitpicking formatting issues. I'd have given it five stars otherwise.

Try the Hawaiian Bread and the Potato rolls. :)

More About the Author

Barbara Mack has been fascinated by words and writing since early childhood. The first story she put into print format was about the birds who came to nest in the gardening shed; it reviewed well with critics (the neighbors, her mother and father, grandparents, etc.) She then had a poem - Love Never Dies - published in an international magazine at age 11, and she's never looked back.

She currently has several historical romance novels available and when she's not writing furiously, you can find her in the kitchen. Her cookbook Easy, Fabulous Bread Making: A collection of quick, no-knead bread recipes is consistently in the top 50 Amazon books on bread making. The well-reviewed Chasing the Sunset spent 14 weeks in the top 5 historical romances from Amazon.
