Joys of Homemade Bread

Nothing beats homemade bread. Sure, the commercial ones are cheaper and convenient to get. There’s also a lot of variety in the market too.

But there’s something special about homemade stuff. The family gets involved and there’s a sense of growing excitement in the air. Everyone takes furtive peeks into the window of the bread machine as we wait expectantly for the bread to rise.

Very soon, as the machine works its magic, the smell of freshly baked bread wafts through the air, permeating our home with comfort and warmth. Such are the memories of love that we want to linger on for our children.

Finally, the machine beeps. My children whoop with excitement. The bread is ready. We gather around the table as the bread is being prepared to be sliced and served. Crusty on the outside but tender loving warm and soft on the inside. Nice.

So, to borrow MasterCard’s ad lines,

Breadmachine: $318
Bread ingredients: $10
Joy of baking homemade bread: Priceless 

Guess, there are really some things that money can’t buy.

Happy Bread Making, everyone

Hi Alora, just read your

Hi Alora, just read your post. The Club Breadmakers can be found in the newbies forum. Do join in the fun as we experiment on new breads and exchange ideas. Not sure abt the brand u mentioned. So far, most of us own the mini Zoji, Severin and Bluesky. See u around in the bread thread soon.  

Always wanted to try breadmaking too

Your article inspires me to re-explore this dream of mine.. to make my own bread.

Can posters here share which bread machine they use? Just saw the google ad about Takada machine – anyone using that?

Also where can I find the breadmaking/baking club mentioned?


Thanks a lot!

I love to make bread too!!

Priceless Homemade bread

Hi Schweppes,

Thanks for writing this article.   I truely agreed with you that commercial bread is cheaper and has more variety in the market.  Homemade bread is just so PRICELESS and so SPECIAL.  It’s made with tons of LOVE.  I must say that I have fun in the passed few weeks reading up KS breadmaking club and our cheerleader.

 Happy Breadmaking!

Hi there

Hi there Schweppes,

Think I’ve pretty much laid down my pen a long time ago.

Mood’s not there and too busy with sonny.

Maybe one day … again

You are a fantabulous writer Schweppes, your posts and stories in Notti corner attest to that

It goes the same for all

It goes the same for all home-cook food. Be it bread, roast chicken, cake, whatever, it’s the involvement that makes the experience so sweet.

Hi schweppesAs I said so

Hi schweppes

As I said so many times before, I am no Shi Fu where bread making is concerned.  Like everyone else, I am still learning.  Think we have found the real McCoy where bread making is concerned.  

Thanks for the friendship, laughter and the bond we have shared the last few days over the breadmaking thread.

Yes, totally agree with you that Happy Mama’s cheerfulness is really infectious!

hmmm...hmmm... i can almost

hmmm…hmmm… i can almost smell the bread! what a lovely article – it really brings out 家的温暖 

I agree also.  I used to

I agree also.  I used to bake bread with my sons  and they love it.  It is soft and smell good.  They rushed to eat it when it was baked.  We can put their favourite, nuts, fuit, ……into the dough.  They love it, when they see the dough keep rising and become  the bread.



Love and Cannot Agree More

All the wholesome goodness of homemade, wonderful smell and joy …really is PRICELESS. 

Way to go Schweppes!!

Hi schweppes,, was trying to extract something from your well written post to highlight on what I like about your post. However, end up extracting nothing, know why? Cos’ I would have end up extracting all of it 🙂 n I guess it would be ridiculous for me to put all of it in my comments again.
