Default feathers in bread

A few years ago while I was eating a sandwich I found a very tiny feather in my bread, and looked on the internet to see if there was anything in the truth about crushed feather's being in bread, I did find info about it, being known as L cysteine, but I was not aware that human hair, (Chinese,)and hogs hair, was also used.
I am thinkng now that I might just start making my own bread.
Just thinking about it lately its starting to make me feel a bit sick, about eating bought bread.
Does anyone on here make their own, and if you use a bread maker are you happy with it.?

Oh my god Ozzie. I don't know if I need to laugh or cry. I think I'll laugh. It feels better.

I ALWAYS wonder what the heck supplements are really made of. Can you imagine a box of the amino acid L-cysteine to say: ingredients - chicken feathers.

Anyway, I make bread. I'm pretty creative with it and my family loves it. The bread is more like a muffin consistency. I use many ingredients for variety sake but one recipe could be: 1/2 cup brown rice, 1/2 cup peas, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, & 2 eggs. Gluten is out in my home so I've learned to make other types of nutritous foods without wheat or other gluten grains.

The eggs act as an emulsifier. You can also use seeds or nuts. Sunflower seeds work really well. I've been experimenting with lecithin and that has worked instead of eggs.

The baking soda helps give it some fluff. If used with gluten grains like wheat or oats it fluffs more. I call it fluff but rise is the term most people use. lol

I'll also add some powdered dehydrated veggies, nutritional yeast and/or various herbs and seaweed....whatever nutritionally my family is in need of that day.

I place it in an oiled glass pan (coconut oil is my preference) then bake it at 350 for 45 minutes.

Good luck. There are so many ways to make bread.

Bread is my downfall, but maybe this is just the thing to remember when I'm about to buy bread next time Lol

I had to tell my husband about your post....feathers in bread. I'm still shaking my head. Making bread is really easy especially if you put a lot of coconut oil or butter in the pan so it's an easy clean up. Not to mention really delish.

Saved1986 had a great idea with the olive foccacia. YUM! I think I need to go buy some olives and oregano and get to baking! Or garlic bread anyone?

Unhappy

I buy/eat either Ezekial bread or rye bread from a great local bakery. Since I live alone & eat very little
bread, I don't think making my own would work for me. I used to love toast & sandwiches ...I miss them at times.

I make bread almost twice a week and this is the recipe that I use
https://www.motherearthnews.com/Real-Food/Healthy-Bread-No-Knead-Bread-Recipes.aspx

If I knead, contrary to the receipe, it it will rise quite high and is suitable for making sandwiches.. Mostly I make this for my husband as he is a big sandwich eater so I developed my technique to suite his needs. I learned the receipe from neighbors and it seems many of my neighbors use it. We all have our variations and some make some very find hard crusted loaves, large and small. I put flax and sunflower seed in mine and about 1/8 cup of grapeseed oil per loaf. I use a sprinkle of corn meal on the base of the pan to keep it from sticking. It freezes well.

If I had a decent oven I would only bake once a week. My oven can only hold one loaf at at time.... somewhere in my future there is a kitchen with a great oven waiting for me!

Thanks, Arrowwind, for the link, those recipes look tasty, I only have a small oven as well but there is only the two of to bake for now so we don't need a big oven.
I have just found a bread recipe in my Easio yoghurt, recipe book, using yoghurt, so I will give that a go as well, and see how they turn out, I have made the scones using the fruit flavoured yoghurt and they turn out nice,I didn't notice the bread recipe in there untill now.
Thank you also Earlybird, and mommysunshine, for your tips.

Easio yoghurt bread.

2 cups wholemeal flour
2 cups plain flour
teaspoon salt
2teaspoons baking soda
1tablespoon sugar
2 cups Easio yoghurt
milk
Preheat oven to 180deg celcius
sift together bothkinds of flour, the salt and the baking soda, stir in the sugar and yoghurt. Add a little milk if the mixture is too dry or the flour is too sticky. Turn out and knead gently.
Grease two small or 1 large loaf tin, and bake for about 45 mins.


variations replace half the flour with kibbled wheat or rye flour, replace 1/4 cup of wholemeal flour with 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, sprinkle with poppy or seseme seeds before baking.
...............
home made breads stay fresh if wrapped in tin foil before placing in plastic bag.
