|Here's grandma Merlene, 90 years old today! She's holding her light wheat bread|
|Warm water mixed with the yeast....then add sugar after it foams up a bit....|
|I was going to use honey in this recipe but I used sugar instead, but I used|
both kinds of flour.
|I used the Wesson canola oil for my bread....|
|Then add the oil and salt.|
2 Cups warm water
1 1/2 Tablespoons active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 cups wheat flour
4 to 4 1/2 cups white flour
In a large bowl yeast in water, then add sugar to feed yeast. Allow to foam up. Add salt and oil and mix up. Add flour 1 cup or so at a time. Knead dough until smooth 3-4 minutes. Place in oiled bowl for an hour to rise and Cover with a damp cloth till doubled in size. Divide dough in half and form into loaves and place in 2 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Makes 2 loaves. Can make all white by substituting wheat flour for white and it is just as easy and yummy.
|Cute flour and sugar holders.....I need some of these...|
|You could use your dough hook, but it seriously takes about 3 to 4 minutes to get it all ready to rise! I just|
do it by hand because it is so easy to clean up.
|My St. Patrick's Day front entry table....I made the leprechaun a few years back with my class.|
We used empty lamination rolls for the body. It took me a year to save up enough at my school!
|Anyway, Grandma Merlene loves homemade bread. I hope she liked mine.|
|And I had to have a few slices too....good thing this recipe makes 2 loaves!|
|Anyway, this wheat bread is real easy, yummy, and good for you! Wanna bite?|
