Basic Bread

This post kind of goes along with this one for the theme “simplicity”, which I am striving to incorporate into my daily life for 2013.

Anyways, I’m a fickle one – I don’t like to bake, I do like to bake… I’ve concluded that I do.

But only if it’s simple. Then I become a bread baking buffoon.

Like this.

Basic Bread

1 packet active yeast

1/2 C warm water

1/2 C milk

1 TSP salt

1 TBS sugar

1 TBS melted butter

3 C whole wheat flower

Non stick spray

Pour the yeast into a large bowl and add the water. Stir until yeast has dissolved. Whisk in milk, salt, sugar and melted butter. When all has been well-mixed, add 2 to 2 1/2 C of the flower, stirring well. If the dough still sticks to your hands, add more.

When the dough is at a desirable consistency {not sticky, but not dry}, knead for a few minutes and form into a ball. Let the ball sit in a bowl that has been sprayed with non stick oil and spray the top of the dough as well. Cover and set in a warm place for 45 minutes to one hour.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

When your dough has risen, spread it out in a 9X4 loaf pan. Cover and let sit in a warm place for an additional 20-30 minutes.

Your dough should have risen to almost the top of the loaf pan.

Let your dough bake in the oven for 45 minutes, then let cool and turn the pan upside down to release your freshly baked bread.

    it’s still not completely clear why the developer has
    made the decision to do so.
