Tips For Baking Bread

Tips for Baking Breads

Kneading dough for 30 seconds after mixing improves the texture of baking powder biscuits. For most biscuits, I mix as little as possible for a more tender biscuit.

When bread is baking, a small dish of water in oven helps keep the crust from getting hard. It is very helpful in higher elevations to keep the bread moist so it will rise as it should.

Instead of using shortening, I use cooking oil in waffles and pancakes.

When measuring butter or shortening with a spoon, dip your spoon in hot water first. This will help the fat come free from the spoon.

You know you have to preheat your oven before baking. It is also a good idea to preheat the cookie sheet and muffin tin.

If you have any leftover corn, ham, turkey, cheese, add it to your pancake/cornbread batter for a different taste.

I always add sugar to my cornbread mix.
