breadblog (try saying that 5 times quickly non-stop!)

Today we tried a home science experiment making bread. To do this it normally is done with yeast. Yeast is a live micro-organism or minute living creature. When you feed the yeast with sugar and warm water, it breathes out gases like carbon dioxide. That's called fermenting, and has a special smell.

When you put fermenting yeast with flour and mix it into a dough, the yeast produces gases which create air pockets doubling the size of the dough and making bread when you've baked it in the oven. Like a lot of science it is a bit like magic. And even better you can eat the results of the experiment !!! Miam Miam (french for yum yum ...)

sugar flour and water.
Proving - the dough  doubles in size !!

  1. That science experiment definitely worked! Thank you for capturing it for us!

  2. WOW! I have never seen a bread face like that!
