Today was bread making day. We were down to a couple slices and I figured I better make some more before we were completely out. My children can’t go 1 day without bread. Someone always has toast for breakfast or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch.
I love baking and one of our good friends continually blesses us with 50# bags of organic bread flour. The last one they gave us was whole wheat! I was very happy! 😀
This is the recipe I use for our sandwich bread. It tastes good and the kids love it. It makes 2 loaves. I wanted to see if I could double it and make 4 loaves at once. It didn’t work out so well. It was way too much dough for my mixer! 😛
That picture was before I added 6 more cups of flour. I’m not a very good judge on size.
It started spitting the flour all over the place! I thought, well, maybe if I took some dough out I could mix it and then mix the dough I took out and then combined the two. Haha! It didn’t work out like that. I ended up having to just knead the dough by hand in a very large bowl and add a little flour at a time to make up for all the flour it spit at me.
Oh well. Now I know and I got an arm workout! 😉
That’s the bread before I let it rise…
And then after.
In the pans…
And then in the oven.
We love to eat it warm out of the oven with some butter! Mmmmm…..
