How to make homemade bread for breakfast
To make homemade breads there are many techniques that require kneading, resting, fermentation and other processes. The first thing we will do is mix the flour in a bowl with the yeast and salt. Then we incorporate the water, stirring just enough so that the ingredients come together, without kneading. Afterwards, we pass the dough to a tupper and let it rest overnight.
The next day we flour the worktable and stretch the dough into a rectangle. If you want to learn a very simple bread that does not require kneadingYou can do the following: fold the dough on itself as if you were rolling it and repeat the operation in the other direction, as if it were a napkin.
Then, leave the folds on the bottom and let the dough rest for a couple of hours. We turn on the oven at 180º with heat up and down but without fan. We put the bread dough in a saucepan or lidded dish, turning it so that the folds are on top and we bake for 40 minutes.
If we prefer a more traditional bread with kneading, the day after rest, we knead the mixture and work it for about 5 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes covering the dough with a cloth. We knead again and form a ball, letting it ferment until it doubles in volume. Preheat the oven to 220º C and divide the dough into two parts. We make some cuts on the top and bake for 40 minutes, sprinkling with water spray at the beginning so that we have a bread with very crusty and spongy crust inside.
The good thing about making homemade bread, whether with or without kneading bread, whether in the form of village breads, loaves, bars or baguettes is that it is a very entertaining process, full of surprises in which every time you try to make a new bread, you will discover new flavors, new difficulties and new successes.

With them you will be encouraged to prepare different varieties of bread, with which to enrich your breakfasts and prepare the best toasts. The aroma of bread spreading from the oven throughout the house compensates for the effort. And the family smile when trying the first slice.
