Ahh, there's nothing like the smell of freshly baked bread in the morning. It is a wonderful thing and is guaranteed to make you at least a little peckish for a quality loaf. Supermarkets pump the smell around their stores to encourage hunger so you buy more – such is the power of fresh bread. It is of course much easier to buy a pre-made, pre-sliced loaf straight off the shelf but that certainly doesn't mean that it will be nicer. Fresh bread has an amazing flavour as well as smell and homemade bread tastes even better. To create your own loaf at home you will need a loaf tin and a few simple ingredients and if you do invest in a loaf tin you will be able to enjoy a delicious, beautifully smelling loaf of bread as often as you like.
Throughout much of the world bread is a staple food item that forms a vital part of a healthy and nutritious diet. Europe and European-derived countries in the west eat bread as their staple while it is rice in the east. The simple act of cooking some dough in a loaf tin can create a fantastic product that can be enjoyed simply with a smear of butter or margarine, or as the foundation of an epic club sandwich, or even bread and butter pudding. Bread is a versatile food and there are numerous different types around the world, such as the following:
• Naan bread
• Matzah bread
• Roti bread
• Rye bread
• Flat bread
There are also a number of more conventional breads that can be made in a loaf tin, such as white bread, wholemeal bread, brown bread and others.
Despite the obvious popularity of bread some people may see it as a bit boring. However, with a loaf tin, a few ingredients and a bit of imagination you can prove these fools wrong. For something a bit fruity you could go for banana bread, for something a bit sweeter perhaps chocolate chip bread and the options go on. To make such delicious breads though you really do need a good quality loaf tin, and thankfully there are a number of cookware retailers with a great loaf tin selection, in materials such as carbon steel and ultra-durable silicone.
