I have been baking bread from scratch for over a year now. Last November, I began grinding my own grain for flour. We have enjoyed eating fresh baked bread on a daily basis...well at least we did until recently. When we arrived in Korea, we used store bought bread because my bread pans came from the US broken. I have since purchased a new pan...a metal one this time....and have attempted to bake my homemade fresh bread. BUT it's not working. I can not seem to get my oven to work for me.
I am used to dealing with a large oven and temperatures in farenheit, but here my oven is very small and the dial has the temps in celcius. I went online, found a conversion chart and thought I was ready to go. That is not the case. I set the temp to what should be 350 degrees farenheit (177 celcius) but my bread didn't bake right. I added more time and it still was not cooked correctly. Maybe I need to see what the altitude is where we are and see if I need to make an adjustment for that.
It's getting frustrating for me. It's like I need to learn how to make bread all over again. I have since baked three loaves, using two different recipes. The third loaf has come out better than the first two, but it could be the different recipe that I used, which is not my normal bread recipe. I am hoping that I will get the kinks worked out in my bread baking and we again can enjoy fresh homemade bread each day!
