Prepping for Breadmas

Prepping for Breadmas


It’s been a long year. Everyone is tired and looking for reasons to be happy. All through the fall I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of something that will make this year stand out for a good reason instead of a bad one. And there’s not much in this world that makes me happier than bread. So I thought, how about 12 days in December where I share a new bread recipe everyday? The 12 Days of Breadmas!

Everything you'll need to participate in the 12 Days of Breadmas. A full list of tools and ingredients to prepare your kitchen.

This post contains affiliate links. If you make a purchase through one of these links I will receive a small commission at no cost to you, and you’ll be supporting the homestead. Thanks!

I know, it’s super corny and silly. But you know what? That might be exactly what we all need. And honestly, you’re on a site called Dorky Little Homestead, did you expect me to be cool? Come on.

The Tools

Bread making doesn’t need to be complicated, but it does still need some tools to make it easy. If you’re hoping to participate in every recipe, then these are the tools I recommend having. If there’s some you don’t have, I’ve provided links to buy them. But I also recommend socially distanced borrowing from anyone you know who has the tool you don’t have. After all, maybe your relationship is just a fling, and you don’t want to break the bank!

  1. Cast Iron Skillet
  2. Loaf Pan
  3. Round Cake Pan or Bundt Pan
  4. Dutch Oven
  5. Stand Mixer
  6. Kitchen Scale
  7. Measuring Cups (Having more than one is helpful)
  8. Mixing Bowls
  9. Bench Scraper
  10. Bowl Scrapers
  11. Banneton

The Breadmas Ingrdients

I thought about this a lot, and decided that listing all the ingredients you would need for all 12 recipes was helpful. I realize it’s a long list, but 12 breads in a lot of breads. And since we’re all trying to minimize how often we go to the grocery store, having a full list seemed smart. So here is the very full list of all ingredients you’ll need to make all 12 breads of Breadmas.

Note: The final bread will require an active sourdough starter. If you don’t have one on the go, you can start one today and it will be ready to use by day 12.

  1. White Flour
  2. Whole Wheat Flour
  3. Rye Flour
  4. Kim’s GF Bread Flour Blend
  5. Active Sourdough Starter
  6. Corn Meal
  7. Sharp Cheddar
  8. Jalapenos
  9. Bacon
  10. Buttermilk
  11. Yoghurt
  12. Cinnamon
  13. Raisins
  14. Koscher Salt
  15. Honey
  16. Currants
  17. Herbes de Provence
  18. Olive Oil
  19. Milk
  20. Dry Active Yeast
  21. Butter
  22. Walnuts
  23. Cranberries
  24. Maple Syrup
  25. Sugar
  26. Baking Powder
  27. Baking Soda
  28. Eggs
  29. Molasses
  30. Beer
  31. Milk Powder
  32. Caraway Seeds
  33. Orange Zest
  34. Rosemary
  35. Potatoes
  36. Pesto

Specific amounts for each ingredient will be with each recipe of course, and some of these things I imagine you will already have in the house.

At the end of the 12 days, I’ll do a post that includes links to all the recipes and you can jump back to this list if you need the reference sheet. Join me on this bread adventure and share pictures of your breads. And tag me in your pics so I can see them! @dorkylittlehomestead

Happy Breadmas!
