If you bake, but making bread intimidates you, Beth Hensperger's Bread Made Easy is the perfect choice for expanding your skills. It gives all the basics a beginner needs about technique, equipment, and ingredients, in the clearest, most reassuring way. Hensperger certainly knows about baking bread-this is her eighth book on the subject. This time, she starts with "Baking School," a comprehensive section covering what pans to use, why bottled water is best, and how to use various kinds of yeast. So I thought I'd try this book, reading carefully about yeasts and flours and techniques in the first 41 pages. I really try to follow recipes exactly to the letter in fear of screwing up.

I finally got up the nerve to begin the task of bread baking about six months ago. After some research, I decided on this book because it is for beginners and the book methodically moves from easiest to more difficult. Each master recipe in a chapter is accompanied by variations on the same theme so if you make the master and a variation, then you probably have the skills to move on. The directions are simple, there is a chapter on basic bread knowledge and they the breads taste great. As of this writing, I have baked pretty much all the master recipes and a variant. I have not tried the sweet dough chapters (of which there are 2 or 3 I think). I thought these chapters are more special occasion breads rather than everyday so I skipped them. IMHO, one sweet dough chapter would have been fine and this is why I didnt give it 5 stars. Im sure they are excellent recipes. I have graduated to Peter Reinhart's Bread Baker's Apprentice which is a more serious treatise and also geared to novices. Look for my review on that when I have baked through it a bit. Bread Made Easy is not expensive and I recommend it as a first timer's book. Hope this helps someone.

I bought this book as a gift for my boyfriend who wanted to get into making his own bread and skip the grocery store breads due to all the preservatives added and non necessary ingredients.
We BOTH love this book. Neither had ever made bread before. This book is full of information for the first timer. The recipies are simple and almost fail proof if your ingredients are fresh.

checked out at library and loved so much I bought it. Great for us "beginner breadmakers." Not only does she have great photos so you have a good idea of what the dough is supposed to be like at certain stages, but she has wonderful tips on tools and ingredients as well. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to learn breadmaking on their own!

I've only tried to bake bread a few times without a bread machine and only one was edible. So I thought I'd try this book, reading carefully about yeasts and flours and techniques in the first 41 pages. I really try to follow recipes exactly to the letter in fear of screwing up. So the author recommends starting with the first recipe and working your way through the book, but I'm already stuck on the very first "white velvet batter bread" because I cannot find the bakeware required for this recipe. There are two options: glass baking canisters or coffee cans. I cannot find the glass canisters that she uses, not even on Amazon, where I can usually find everything!
Also, have you tried finding 13-oz coffee cans? I don't even usually buy coffee in cans (I buy beans in bags) so when I went to purchase some, I found that most of the "cans" are plastic, and the metal ones come in 10oz and 12.5oz and everything in between, but not 13oz. Ugh. Not sure if Amazon sells coffee or adequately describes the packaging, but that's the next place I'll look.
If I can find them, I'll buy two cans and brew coffee for a couple of weeks until I empty both of them so that I can then try to bake the bread. So the first recipe is getting a bit arduous and I haven't even measured out the yeast yet!

>>>Update: After some in-store research, I've determined that all those cans of coffee are the same size, just adjusted for weight, but be sure it's the type of can that you open with a can opener, not with the pull-off sealed lid! I've now successfully made the first two breads in the book and they were wonderful and pretty easy by strictly following the directions. I feel ready to start moving on and adding whole grains and really getting towards healthier bread products. Three comments that would improve the book: (1) give measurements throughout the recipe, for example, you use 1 1/2 cups of flour at the beginning, then on the next page it says to "add the rest of the flour 1/3 cup at a time" which means you have to go back and look at the ingredient list a page back and do the math in your head and figure out how many 1/3 cup scoops that is (19 scoops plus a bit, don't lose count!), or better yet (2) teach us how to properly measure flour (which I fortunately happened to know already) so that we can pre-measure out the entire amount and do less math. Also (3) talk about humidity, because I had to add extra flour to achieve the correct dough texture, supposedly from my baking friends because of the high, high humidity here in Florida.

**** I'd give it four stars if I reviewed it today.

I had checked the Hensperger book out of my local library so knew what I was getting. It's a great book of the basics that I refer to regularly as I am a beginner bread maker. Hensperger's writing is clear and concise and the book is well organized for easy reference.

I wanted to start making my own bread and found this book at my local library. I was so excited to find this book for purchase at an affordable price.
I love every recipe I've made so far, every one has turned out perfectly and has been absolutely delicious (coming from someone who can barely cook/bake)! I'm not very good at understanding written instructions, but the author explains the recipes in an easy-to-understand way with pictures/descriptions of how things should look and feel.
I would recommend this book to anybody looking at making homemade bread.

GREAT book! I have been making my all my own bread for a long time - yet this straightforward thorough overview of the basics is VERY valuable to me. Loved reading it and I will refer back to it often.
This book exceeded my expectations. It explains everything you need to know to bake all types of bread, including ingredients, supplies, techniques and tips. The author is very knowledgable and takes you through the book from basic to more advanced breads. I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn the art of baking breads!!!
