A Cupboard Full of Bread

I can happily say my cupboard is full of homemade bread this week. It has been way too long since I had the time. But now that my house is cleaned out, I have a lot of time for things like bread baking without feeling overwhelmed. This has been a good week so far, with many more things on my list of To Do's!

My lovely Bread rising to the occasion

Whole Wheat Bread
5 1/2 cups of Very Warm Water. I let my faucet get really hot.
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup Honey, Raw Sugar, Agave, or any sweetener of your choice
1 cup Gluten Flour
1 1/2 T. Salt
3 T. Dry Yeast
12-14 Cups Whole Wheat Flour

I put the water, salt, sweetener in the mixing bowl of my Bosh. I mix till dissolved. Then I add my yeast and make sure it has all gotten wet. Then I let the yeast do its things till it is foamy. About 10 minutes. Then I add my oil and Gluten Flour and start my mixer on low. Slowly add my flour till is starts to pull away from the edges. I don't use all my flour. I like light fluffy bread. Then let it knead for 10 minutes in mixer. Then I mold it into loaves( I do 4 loaf pans so it is tall and makes great sandwiches)and let rise by my oven on warm till it is as big as I am wanting. Then Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.

I love this recipe and it works every time. Thanks Sandra for sharing! She is my inspiration in homemade cooking.

It's a week for homemade bread! I love it. Good job. I've been trying to make bread instead of buying, and so far it's going good. If I can just keep it up. You inspire me every time I read your blog, keep it up! :)

My kids say oh good, its the YUMMY bread! That keeps me going. Once I start making it I wonder why I ever go back to the store stuff!
