White ‘Franco’ bread

The subject with baking is like any other skill or job one may do: the more you practice, the better you would do. There are of course some tips and tricks you would notice or learn by time.
Bread is the essence of life in its simplest form. I am so happy to learn a bit about bread and lucky to make my healthy bread myself.
White ‘Franco’ bread is one of the easiest bread you may try yourself as a beginner baker 🙂 I mean by ‘Franco’ the type of bread that is typical for European people that is quite different from that in Eastern countries like Egypt, my home.
All what we need for baking is a pot of suitable size where we add little water by little to the all purpose flour until we get the consistency suitable for making bread. We add the fermenting yeast mean while and treat our baking stuff quite good to become homogenous.
Then we leave the baking stuff for some time until it looks and smells fine after the action of yeast to be ok.
We need then to shape our baking like balls of suitable size and then give them few minutes to rest.
The baking oven should be set at about 220-250 Celsius before putting the baking pieces inside it.

How often should one bake? It depends on the conditions of everyone, but generally once a week you you bake for one or two days so that your performance would improve quite quickly. And enjoy 🙂
