For my third dish for cooking at home, I decided to try to make homemade bread. I was really excited when I opened my pantry and saw yeast, because I’ve always wanted to make homemade bread. I looked up a recipe that was by the same brand as the yeast, and began. I mixed together all my ingredients and started to knead the dough for 10 minuets. I let that sit for 10 minuets whilst being covered. After the 10 minuets were up I cut the dough in half and with one half I put it into the bread pan, and with the other I decided to braid it because I saw it online and it looked kind of cool I guess. I covered both of those and let it sit for 1 hour and 30 minuets. After waiting a long time it was finally time to put the bread in the oven! 30 minuets later it was done.
If I were to make this dish again, I would make two bread loafs and not one braided one, the reason being is that the bread one was more fluffy, and I could make more things with it.
A challenge I had while making this dish was the kneading. It hurt my wrists a bit, much like the doughnuts. I overcame this by taking a little break.
My greatest success was how soft and fluffy the loaf was.
I am most proud of how it tastes; compared to store bought bread, it is incomparable because the homemade bread tastes so much better.
