Heavenly Homemade Bread

I have fallen in love with Homemade Bread


Big Red!

I LOVE my “Big Red”!


I have waited over 20 years to get “Big Red” and I really don’t know why I waited so long.  It always seemed such a HUGE expense to me to purchase a Kitchenaid Mixer.  That is until you have one.  Then…you can’t live without it.  Well…I guess you could (and I did), but cooking and baking wouldn’t be near as much fun.

One of my dear friends Jo from Homestead Chronicles got me all excited and challenged around Thanksgiving and Christmas last year to start making my own bread.  She turned me on to Noreen from Noreen’s Kitchen.  And that was that…I was hooked, doomed I tell ya.  And my husband is the happiest man around now!!

It’s taken me several, several months and a zillion tries to get my bread to turn out in a consistent way.  But heck, even my flops or flat tops turned into really yummy thick sliced french toast (the hubbys suggestion – love that man)! Also, bread that wasn’t quite right made excellent croutons and bread crumbs!!

Amazing Croutons & Breadcrumbs too!

 Homemade Heavenly Bread (and rolls)

Here is the most amazing Homemade Bread recipe that works every single time (almost..I think its the human not the recipe 😉  I have used Noreen’s Recipe but have adapted it to work for me.  It could also be my oven, I know they do vary.  This recipe is also good for rolls, cinnamon rolls and freezes well!

  1. Pssss….now you need to get the pasta attactment…go big and get the set that makes the noodles, ravioli and all that stuuf. If you thought you died and went to heaven wait till you make home made ravioli! Meat, cheese, pumpkin whatever! Believe me it is worth the price! Make sure you have the mixer that is strong enough to handle the dough though. Like the pro models. Other wise you could burn out your motor.

    • Rachelle,

      LOL…thank you!! Yes, I have that on my list, and yes…I did buy a PRO model with the all metal gears just so I could buy all the attachments if I wanted to. Thank you for the comment and suggestion!

  2. Any suggestions for substituting something for dry milk powder? I never buy that stuff & don’t want to make an extra trip to the store. Lazy, I know!

    • Mary,
      That’s not lazy, it’s being frugal and not wasting time, money or gasoline! I believe that you could switch out the dry milk powder for real milk, then decrease your liquid in the recipe accordingly. I hope that works for you, let me know!

  3. I see you have 3 loaves waiting. Can this recipe be doubled/tripled? or are you mixing one at a time?
    My gang would eat 2 out of the oven.

  4. This makes me so happy! Every kitchen, every baker, and every batch is different and if I have learned nothing else, I have learned that sometimes you have some trial & error and you tweak until it works. Bread recipes are guidelines/starting points because yeast is a living thing that reacts with a mind of its own depending on the environment. Your bread looks incredible! I wish there were taste-a-vision!

  5. I “LOVE” home made bread. Love yours.
    Here are photos of just a few of mine. I’ve made 1,000’s over the years.
