How the Pros bake – what to look for!

I love to bake bread, however my first few loaf’s didn’t come out perfect. So I read a bunch of books and these simple steps actually helped me a lot.

1. Kneading: For the yeasty dough to become smooth and soft, you’ll have to knead it. If with your hands or a machine, both is fine!

2. Rest your dough: The dough likes it warm and without a draft, covered it with a cloth for best results. Your dough should double in size.

3. Cut into your dough: If you don’t want your bread to crack apart, make sure you cut into it with a sharp knife right before baking time.

4. Knock test: After the baking and cooling, you can check your bread with the knock test if it’s done or not! If your bread sounds hollow, your bread is done.
