Yummy! My bread recipe.
On today's agenda is bread making! We LOVE our homemade bread here and I think William would eat a whole loaf if I let him! Instead, he has to make due with a measly slice...
Italian Style Bread
Put all ingredients in bread machine pan in this order.
1 1/2 c hot tap water
2 T olive oil (or flax seed oil, butter, etc)
1 1/2 t salt
4 1/4 c flour (may substitute up to 1 1/2 c with whole wheat flour)
1 T brown sugar (honey, jaggery, any sugar will work)
1 T vital gluten
2 1/2 t yeast
Put pan into machine and set on dough cycle.
After completion, remove and knead lightly on floured board. Form into two loaves (or favorite shapes) and place in greased pans. Cover with a towel and rise until doubled in a warm, draft-free spot. I use my oven with the light turned on.
When risen, remove towel and bake on 350 about 20 m or until lightly browned. You may baste the top crust w/ butter or olive oil. Let cool 5 m, turn out on rack, cool 10m more. Put in air tight container while still very warm.
