Tricks to note

1. Never add salt to your yeast when proofing it

2. Always get strong yeast and proof it before use so your bread can raise well

3. Always dust your bread with flour or egg wash it or milk wash it before baking to get a professional look

4. Before allowing your bread to raise, always use oil for your container and also for your bread pans so it makes it easy to remove and also make your dough not dry.

5. You can always substitute butter with oil or margarine just that your taste will differ depending on what is used.

6. Mix evaporated milk with water and warm for a recipe that calls for milk if you don’t have paper milk.

7. Remember to always be creative and remember its your kitchen and your food and you can add whatever you please.

Mistakes are mostly what leads to new recipes.
