Kneading like a champ!
So, how did it turn out…
Standard Homemade Bread Recipe (from the Homestead Blessings DVD)
Ingredients (makes two loaves):
2 1/2 cups warm water
4-5 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup honey
1 Tbs of yeast
Add water, flour, salt, oil, and honey – mix together. Mix in the yeast. Mix in the rest of the flour one cup at a time, until you have a nice dough (not too sticky, not too “floury”). Knead (punch and roll around that bread for about 5-10 minutes) and let rise for 1 1/2 hours in a warm place (ideal temp is 80 degrees). Punch down, separate into two sections, and put into greased loaf pans. Use a fork to poke several holes into the dough. Let rise again for about an hour and then bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
