Bread everyday

I have stopped blogging about bread making due to the fact that I make it everyday now. Talk about frugal!! But then I thought that I make a variation nearly everyday too. So this may be interesting to some of you who are interested in baking? I will continue to blog about it then....
This is the dough from my basic recipe. I have substituted 1 cup of flour with 1/2 cup of potato flour and 1/2 cup of buckwheat flour.
No seeds or fruit today. Something smooth is the mood.

Oooh I'd love to read about all your breadmaking! Daily (or well to be more honest, weekly) bread-making is on my to-do list since I bought the Bourke Street Bakery book a couple of months ago!

Do you use yeast? Or do you mostly make flatbreads?

The book tells you how cultivate your own "starter" instead of using packet yeast which is scaring me off a little bit (sounds like something akin to "The Blob" would be living in my fridge). Have you tried making your own starter?

I would love to bake our own bread but I haven't taken the plunge yet. Not sure what is holding me back, could you suggest a good recipe to kick me off? I notice you mention on your side bar that you look out for black cockatoos, they are my favourite bird. When I see a group of them flying elegently above I always think it's good luck! Hope you are having a happy day xo

thanks Beck :-) I have a basic recipe in my taste book on the side bar. I am not sure how easy it is to get to it. let me know if its hard. I think I am going to change things around on this here blog!

Jo: I use yeast (the dried stuff from a canister I bought in the supermarket). I am not a fan of "sour dough" (i just dont like sour things...especially bread. That starter you are talking about sounds like a sour dough??) I am going to amazon that book you mention now. have a great day. good luck with the baking hump...you can do it!!

The bread with its use of three different flours reminds me of the most wonderful bread I used to make in my 30's. It was called Honey Whole Wheat, and it used Rye, Wheat and White flour. I remember it had both honey and molasses in it, and was just heavenly. I lost the recipe somewhere along the line. I have searched for it online everywhere...if I EVER find it, I will share it with you.
