He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonderandhome.com

    10% Shit, that ain’t bread, that’s a muffin! I make bread at home all the time, and at most I use a tablespoon or two of sugar to feed the yeast.Report

      From what I understand, one of the many little things that befuddles Europeans about America is why we keep calling cake “bread”. It ain’t just Subway… most American breads are heavy on sugar in a way that makes them taste totally different than their European counterparts.Report

        I make stuff like Banana Bread at home, and that isn’t really bread, it’s just a loaf cake.

        I’ve made sweet breads (think cinnamon raisin), and that is technically bread.

        But bread that is not supposed to be sweet, or a cake, has no business having that much sugar in it.Report

        My understanding was higher sugar (and salt) content in American bread was to make it more of a “keeping” loaf – in a country where most of us can’t get to an actual bakery every day like Europeans can.

        Still, on the rare occasions I make bread I only put a tiny bit of sugar in (or honey, that will feed the yeast too). But I also have to freeze most of the loaf because in my humid climate a homemade loaf will mold in a couple days.Report
