April 2019: Breadmaking

Well this class was a big one for me, because I was the instructor!  It was exciting, and nerve-wrecking, all at the same time. But in the end, it was a great success, and it seemed like everyone really enjoyed themselves. I mean, when there’s that much homemade, hot-out-of-the-oven bread to be had, it’s nearly impossible for it to be anything less than successful! Am I right?!

Throughout the class, we all made a braided bread as well as breakfast biscuits. During the rise times, we discussed a few tips for how to fold the breads, how to store/proof your yeast, and even what to feel for when you’re kneading the dough.  We even tested different types of bread pans to see which produced the best loaf!  I loved that the class got to be so “hands-on.” Breadmaking is just one of those subjects that is SO much better learned when you get to dig into the dough and work with it!

Getting to host AND teach a class was such a blessing and an honor for me, truly. But what made me the most proud came in the days following the class. I had several ladies send me messages with pictures of the breads and biscuits they had gone home and made for their own families! You wanna talk about heart-warming! I just loved that SO much!!! I’m telling you, these classes have meant more to me than I’ll ever be able to explain to anyone!

Here are some of the pictures from our breadmaking class:
