Baking Bread

Room 15 had a go at baking bread. We learned a little about yeast and then had a go at no-knead ciabatta. We had a look and smell at the special ingredient, yeast and then left our bread to rise overnight.

The next morning,  Josh noticed that our mixture smelled like beer. He was right! The yeast in bread goes through a process of fermentation. We are going to learn more about fermentation in the weeks that follow.

But today, we popped our mixture in the oven and had some nice warm bread after morning tea.

Have you ever made bread before?

What is the special ingredient that makes bread.


  1. Hey room 15,

    I have a bread maker at my house and we use it every few holidays. At my house, the main 'magic ingredient' is yeast.

    Making bread sure sounds fun! I used to have a bread maker at home but it was about 15 years old and it kind of blew up so that was the end of that then :D
