Here is the secret no baker wants you to know: Bread is easy to make. Don’t be intimidated by it needing to rise twice and everything else that goes with it.
By Liz Swartz
Here is the basic idea. You combine warm milk with yeast, let the yeast wake up. Mix your ingredients together (we’ll cover the order in the recipe), put the dough in a oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap to rise. It will double in size. Then roll is out into a rectangle, cover in cinnamon sugar and roll into a log. Place that log in the bread pan and cover it and let it rise again. As you can see below, it doesn’t get much bigger in the oven after it rises for the second time, so what it looks like after it rises is roughly the size it will be.Print
