Baking bread

For a nation of bread lovers like ourselves, there’s nothing
quite like the smell and taste of a freshly baked loaf. Making
your own bread is not only rewarding, it can be quick, easy
and will save you money too. 

More importantly, you know the exact ingredients going
into the bread you make, making it healthier and
more nutritional. 

You could go for the ‘do it yourself’ option, which is when
a stand mixer with dough-making accessories will come
in handy, or let a bread maker take care of the entire
process for you. This includes the kneading, rising
and baking.

The Sage by Heston Blumenthal ‘The Custom Loaf’ bread maker uses a clever interface to compute the temperature and baking time when you make a selection.  An internal light and large viewing window allow you to check the progress of the baking cycle without heat loss from opening the lid.

You can experiment with flavours and baking styles, mixing in fruits, nuts, grains or jam into any recipe with ease. The chute opens automatically to dispense ingredients into the dough at the appropriate time, and there’s a choice of 3 or 4 different crust settings from light to crunchy.

If you’re making bread by hand, but require a little help with the science behind getting it just right, Kenwood’s kMix stand mixer could be a worthy investment – it comes with a non-stick coated dough hook which will knead up to 1.3kg of dough. 

A dough hook is designed to knead dough quickly and efficiently without chaotically distributing flour all over your work surface. The hook rapidly develops gluten; the protein in wheat dough responsible for elasticity that keeps air bubbles inside, resulting in fluffy, soft bread.
