First Rise

 Good morning,

This is the beautiful first rise on my last batch of bread.  It's in the oven with just the light on to provide enough warmth for the yeast to do its thing.

As soon as I took the picture, I took it out, beat it up again (kneaded it) and put it into pans for a second rise.  As soon as that occurred, it was ready to bake.

If interested, there are many bread recipes with pictures of all steps here on my blog.  Be sure to scan through them by clicking "older posts" at the bottom of each page.

Beautiful bread dough! Talk about a "high rise." I like the tip about using the oven light to give just the right warmth.

There's nothing like bread. I can give up a lot of food items, but not bread. I see it as the essence of life - like air and water.

There is nothing like fresh baked bread and the aroma that goes through the house is quite something.
