How to Make Bread: Instruction & Resources for Bread Baking

There's nothing like tasty homemade bread!


Pleasant Hill Grain has what you need to make bread!

  • Bread Baking Instruction Resources: Pleasant Hill Grain offers how-to cookbooks and videos covering every aspect of bread making. We have books, tapes and DVD's on yeast breads, gluten-free breads, whole grain breads, quick breads... basically all kinds of breads, in our Bread & Whole Grains Baking Book section. If you don't know a whole grain from a hole in the wall yet, these resources will take you step-by-step to your first delicious loaf of homemade bread, and then to anywhere else you want to go. And if you're already an expert, they'll make you a greater one!

  • Our baking glossary with an emphasis on whole grains is a great resource to learn what certain baking ingredients are, how to follow particular methods, and even how to pronounce some foreign terms you might not be used to!

  • Bread Dough Mixers: Mixing and kneading a loaf of bread by hand is great fun, but it's also strenuous and time consuming if you need to do very much of it. Our Bosch Mixers are the perfect tool for mixing and kneading dough for anywhere from one to six loaves of bread at a time. Most kitchen mixers (even the most famous names) will quickly break down if asked to do the work that a machine like the Bosch Universal Mixer takes in stride, day in and day out. The superior gluten development of the Bosch kneading action produces fabulous texture and taste. Making bread with a Bosch mixer is fast, easy, fun and economical!

  • Whole Grain Flour Mills for the Home Kitchen: Fresh bread is always tasty, but you're getting scant nutrition if all your flour is store-bought (even if the label says "whole wheat.") Whole grains are a treasure house of vital nutritional goodness, but to get the full benefit of those riches, flour must be milled fresh from whole grains shortly before use. Grain loses the majority of many nutrients within just three days of milling, due to exposure to oxygen -- and no method of packaging, chemical stabilization, or even refrigeration, can prevent that. What to do? Simple! Use a convenient high speed home grain mill to turn whole grains into totally fresh, wonderfully fine flour, right on your kitchen countertop. Mills like the extremely popular Nutrimill, KoMo Classic & Country Living Grain Mill are quick, clean and couldn't be easier to use. Best of all, they restore the nutrition to your diet that's been stripped from the shelf-stabilized, realfood-wannabees.

  • Commercial Mixers & Commercial Grain Mills: Great values on quality commercial-grade machines for the serious small business!

  • Whole Grains Wheat, Oats, Lentils, Beans & More: Start with the finest natural whole grains for the best results.

  • Bakeware: Find Norpro loaf pans, French bread pans, stainless steel cooking sheets... a cornucopia of essential goodies, in Bakeware.

  • Quality Baking Ingredients: SAF Red Label instant yeast... dough enhancer... vital gluten... pure Mexican vanilla extract... quality Baking Ingredients are fundamental to great bread baking results.

  • Cook's Tools: From thermometers that reveal exactly when your bread's perfectly done, to dough dividers, whisks, timers and more... the Cook's Tools that make kitchen tasks easier, quicker & more fun! Be sure to check out the new Perfect Beaker... you may want more than one!
