Fresh Baked Bread!! June 7, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — sandra @ 9:01 pm

I love the smell and taste of fresh, baked bread!  I’ve been making my own bread now for several years, and everyone around here loves it!  I can’t seem to keep enough baked, though!  I need to try to get on more of a regular schedule.  I made some this weekend, and it’s already about gone!  I also made a batch of banana chocolate chip muffins, and there is only one of those left!  At least it’s all made from freshly ground whole wheat, so it’s good for us!

I like to make my sandwich bread with a mixture of hard red and hard white wheat.

Grind it and put it in my handy-dandy bread machine with all of the other ingredients.  This bread machine came from a yard sale several years ago!

I set the machine for the dough cycle.  After about 1 1/2 hours, the dough is ready and I take it out and place it in a bread pan to rise again.

Once it’s finished rising, I put it in the oven for about 30 minutes.  Then I take out a delicious loaf of yummy, good-for-you bread!  If only it didn’t get gone so fast!!!

    Sandra- Is your recipe a Bread Beckers recipe? Your bread looks great. I also make our bread, insisted on a special and expensive bread maker. I heard that the dough was too tough for everyday breadmakers to handle. I wish I had tried a yard sale model. I would have $250 in my pocket. Oh well, live and learn.
    Thanks for the great things you post on your site. I look forward to each one.

    • Hi Denise–
      I use a recipe that was given to me by a friend..I’ve adapted it some to make it a little more user friendly! I used to use the Breadbeckers recipe, but found that we like this one much better. Let me know if you’re interested, and I’ll be glad to post the recipe!
