BreadinFife Online

Baking your own bread is easy, doesn't take up much space, you don't need special equipment or exotic ingredients, it doesn't involve much work you just need to be there for the next step, the breads taste great and you know exactly what's in them.

We keep things simple, no dough hooks, retarding cabinets, special bread ovens, proving ovens or any other specialised equipment and no unusual ingredients. The emphasis is on how easy, affordable, accessible and delicious home made bread is.
The recipes aim to describe the look, smell and feel of the dough at each stage, and give help in recognising when the dough is ready to move from one stage to the next.
