Bread Recipe

I thought I would share our family's bread recipe with ya'll! I'm making bread this afternoon!!

This recipe makes four loves.

Whole Wheat Bread
2 cups of buttermilk
3 TBS yeast
3 cups of warm water
1 1/3 cups of gluten
1cup of honey
1/2 cup of oil
2 TBS salt
4 TBS sugar
3 cups of wheat flour

Heat oven to 170.
Dissolve yeast in warm water and add other ingredients to Bosch mixer or a big bowl. Mix in Bosch or knead on a table while adding flour. Keep adding flour until dough isn't sticky (will end up using about 7 total cups for this many loaves). Grease 4 bread pans. Shape dough into loaves and put in pans. Cover with damp towels and let rise in oven for 1 hour. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes and turn onto wire racks.

1 Before you put dough into pans to rise, drop on counter several times or slap it to get the air out. I forgot to do this once, and when we cut into the bread it had holes in it :)

2 When you are finished mixing (or kneading) the dough, grease pans quickly and put them in the oven, or it will start to rise in the bowl.

3 If possible grind your wheat and use it fresh. It tastes better and is way more healthy than store-bought wheat flour.

4 If you are going to knead the dough by hand, take your rings off.

5 Tastes great with butter and honey while still warm :) Yum!
