Steps to making bread and the science behind it.
Step 1: You will need to gather all the materials and ingredients you will need for this recipe.
The ingredients you will need for this recipe are water, flour, sugar, oil, salt, and yeast.
Step 2: Add the dry yeast to the water.
Yeast works by consuming glucose or other carbohydrates from the dough mixture and producing ethanol and carbon dioxide. As the yeast produces carbon dioxide the gas gets trapped in the dough mixture causing the dough to rise over time.
The yeast acts as a leavening agent.
Yeast is also what causes the small pockets in the bread
To activate the yeast it has to be in warm water(105 degrees) because if it is to cold then it won't activate but if it is to warm it the yeast will die.
Step 4: Add the sugar to the mixture.
Makes the bread sweeter
Acts as a fuel for the yeast.
Goes through the process called maylo reactions that help cause the brown crust.
Step 3: Add the oil to the mixture.
Oil acts as the fat in this recipe.
It makes the bread softer and prevents the water from escaping during baking.
Step 5:Add the salt to the mixture
The salt helps shield charged gluten molecules from one another.
The salt also helps to enhance the flavor in bread.
Step 6: Add the flour to the mixture
Gives the structure of the bread.
The yeast uses glucose from the flour to power its reaction.
The water activates proteins that form gluten.
Step 7: You have to knead the dough until it get harder and then you can form it so you can bake the bread.
You have to knead the bread because the long stretches and pulls causes hydrogen bonds can form between adjacent gluten proteins.
