Homemade Bread

It’s been a looooooong time since I’ve been able to post! All my time lately has been taken up by classes, moving, and this adorable face.

Isn’t she cute?! Maizy the goldendoodle is the newest addition to our little family, and we adore her. BUT she sure does need a lot of attention!

WHEN I do happen to find some spare time, I’m still baking and cooking away. My weekly ritual since Christmas has been to bake a loaf of bread, because over the holidays in some weird kind of resolution, I decided that I’m going one of those people who makes everything from scratch, starting with my bread. In the last 4 months, that’s exactly what I’ve done.

I’ve dabbled with a couple of old favorite bread recipes before I found the perfect blend of ingredients to make a fairly healthy and DELICIOUS loaf of soft bread. Nothing tastes better than a slice of warm bread from the oven.

You will need:

  • 1 1/2 C warm water
  • 1/2 Tbls yeast
  • 1/4 Tbls salt
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 1 Tbls olive oil
  • 2 C wheat flour
  • 2 C white flour

Mix your water and yeast. Allow to become foamy.

Combine everything except 1 cup of each flour in large mixing bowl. Once thoroughly mixed, add the rest of the flour.

Knead well on floured surface. Form a loaf and place in a greased bread pan. Cover with a towel and let raise for at least a half hour.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 mins. Allow bread to sit in plan for another 15 minutes before removing and enjoying a slice…or two…or more…
