Making bread


I started making bread again recently. I don't know why I ever stopped. We love it so much, and it really only takes just over an hour with the fast recipe from my mom. I can do four loaves at once in my mixer, and it's really no more trouble than one or two. I can freeze the extras, but maybe that's unnecessary: we've eaten three loaves in three days from my last batch.

  1. Arghhh the google sign in on pages setup like yours hates me! I just lost my comment.

    I just got a free recipe book in the mail from Fleischman's yeast. The breads in there are supposed to knead themselves. I haven't tried any yet, but they had some interesting multi-grain recipes and I can't wait to try.

  2. I have troubles making 100% whole wheat bread....I printed yours off and am going to try it. Wish me luck!

    Do you always put the honey in it? I have a son with type 1 diabetes, and he doesn't do any sugars at all.....Have you ever tried using unsweetened applesauce in place of th4e honey? Wonder what that would do to the texture.....?

  4. TJ, I just got that book too. If you like it, you might also be interested in Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. It's an amazing book, and there's no kneading there, either.

    Mercy, I really like this recipe. I've tried it with sugar instead of honey, but I've never tried applesauce. I hope you'll let me know how it goes. I've heard that some diabetics can have fructose. If he can have that, it might also be a good substitute.
