I have been making home made bread since I was a young man. I didn't have a mixer, a bread machine or even a thermometer. We barely had electricity. Some of the bread I made was eatable, the other loaves were barely tolerable. I cooked for 6 brothers and sisters and they seemed to like it just fine. It's all we had to eat with the pot of beans mom would make. It didn't matter how bad the bread was, you could always soak it in the bean juice. I am now a premier bread maker and so is my daughter, Phoebe, since we have been using goat milk to substitute for cow milk, powder milk and even water. The high quality milk produced from our Nigerian Dwarfs and delivered by the Henry Milker is the difference in OK bread and the best bread you have ever tasted. Make some bread tomorrow and use only goat milk as the liquid, you will thank me!
