Re: Bread Making on board

Take a large ziplock freezer bag. Put all ingredients into it. Then knead it with the bag closed. Adding more flour if it sticks to the bag, just like adding more flour if it sticks to the bowl. You can knead it without making a floury mess. Once well kneaded, remove from bag and let it rise. This works so well i dont know why everyone doesnt do it.
I also have a recipe for no knead bread, uses oatmeal and whole wheat flour and its perfect for when i want bread but dont want to take a lot of time in prep.

I would never go back to the mess and time kneeding and oven baking.

5 minutes of adding ingredients to the pan and the work is done. A couple hours later I have a delicious 2 lb loaf.

I'm ready to venture into the area of baking my own bread, but I'm not sure what area I should use to knead the bread - space is somewhat limited.

Google Jim Lahey’s No Kneed Bread. Easy No learning curve or better yet learn how to make Irish Farls on the stove top. Really easy and just enough For two people. No yeast either. Very simple.

Re: Bread Making on board

My Mother LOIS taught me how to bake bread when I was but a Toddler. She would sing this song to me and that is how I learned How To Bake Bread;
PATTY CAKE
Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man.
Bake me a cake as fast as you can
Pat it, roll it and mark it with a B
Put it in the oven for baby and me
Patty cake, patty cake, baker’s man.
Bake me a cake as fast as you can;
Roll it up, roll it up;
And throw it in a pan!
Patty cake, patty cake, baker’s man.

Re: Bread Making on board

I used a homemade bread-board, dedicated to kneading dough. It is a piece of quality sapele plywood with a searail all-round. Because it is (mostly) flat it is easy to store. I would make bread at sea on the night watch, so there was no hurry or need to take shortcuts, and I personally like to take out any issues on the dough

If we are talking about baking bread in port, I never bothered. That might well justify a dedicated machine but I simply don't have the storage space.

Small and easy ! And I'm sure you can find it cheaper, but this was the first google search . And agreed , if you just use it to make the dough , uses almost no electric!

You have a 32 foot boat and no space?

Re: Bread Making on board

I have a bread maker, but only use it for mixing and kneading. Since it can be used anywhere, keep it in the foc's'le. After kneading, put the dough in a regular pan. Saves a lot of time.

If I didn't have the bread maker, the zip-lock bag is a great idea.

Re: Bread Making on board

Make bread you will love it. A quick tip. Measuring flour sugar salt etc, is the messy time consuming part of the process. I use Mason jars filled with the dry ingredients, prepare as many jars as you need.

Re: Bread Making on board

Thanks for all the great pointers. I ended up using a large bowl where I knead the bread. The loaf didn't turn out too bad, but I've got to come up with a better way to keep the dough warm while it rises. My boat is normally in the 50-60 range this time of year.

+1 for bread machine
While I have not measured it, it cannot use much power, no mess and no hot oven in a hot boat

That's a tad chilly for me, much less for getting a rise out of your bread.

Depending on how your boat is arranged you may find space on or near the water heater that is warm enough. Alternatively a drop light with a 40 or 60W bulb (incandescent, not LED) tucked in the oven or other closed space will keep the space warm - between 100 - 110°F. Chilly is not the end of the world. It takes longer, sometimes a lot longer, to rise when cold but it will rise. Sourdough breads are sometimes refrigerated to rise more slowly.

You're far from alone in advocating a bread machine. I just don't get it. Power aside, it's a lot of space used for something with only one purpose. A good bit of water for cleaning. Lots of uses for a big bowl and for loaf pans. I don't think much of excess small appliances (breadmakers, Instant Pot, etc) in homes much less on boats where space is so constrained. My pressure canner is useful for canning, cooking, big loads of pasta, seafood boils on the beach, and for storing my smaller pressure cooker inside (which has still other things inside *grin*). It takes up about the same amount of storage as a breadmaker and is much more useful.

Breadmaking is a good match for laundry day. The timing works pretty well.
