Homemade Wheat Bread Recipe
I love the smell of baking bread! It was my appetizer I served with salami and a glass of wine.
W H E A T B R E A D R E C I P E
1 T yeast
1/2 c. warm water
Dissolve for 5 minutes.
2 1/4 cups warm water
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. canola oil
Start whisking in 3 cups wheat flour. Add two more cups of white flour. Then put about one cup of white flour on the counter top and place the dough on it. Before I start kneading the bread I coat my hands in Crisco. As I am kneading the dough if it feels sticky add more flour and knead it until it is smooth. Let it rise in a warm place or you can use a bread-proof oven and let it rise for one hour (can cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap). Divide in half and shape into two loaves, put in greased bread pans. Let rise another 45 – 60 minutes. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes at 375 degrees.
I let the bread cool for awhile and I then used an electric knife to slice it and served it with room temperature unsalted butter.
