Tonight, tomorrow, same thing...

Here's my bread recipes...

Honey Wheat Bread
(makes a two big loaf pans and some breadsticks)
5 c hot water
3 T yeast
1/2 c canola oil
2 Tbs lemon juice
4 Tbs milled flaxseed (in the baking aisle)
4 Tbs wheat germ (in the cereal aisle)
2/3 c honey
2 T salt
10 1/2 c wheat flour
1/2 c gluten flour (in a box in next to the flour)

put 1 c flour and the yeast into a BIG bowl. Add water, then oil, lemon juice, flaxseed, wheat germ, honey, salt & gluten flour. Mix well. Add the rest of the flour. Let set 5 mins. Divide in half and place in greased loaf pans (it's pretty "runny"-I try not to touch it, just dump it in the pan and smooth it out with a spoon). Rise till doubled. Bake at 350 for 30 mins.

YUM! When I first started making this I'd eat it for dessert with honey on's that good!

and for those of you not down with wheat bread...this White bread recipe is amazing...

White Bread
Makes two big loaf pans

1/3 c sugar
2/3 c powdered milk
2 Tbs yeast
1/4 c butter
2 tsp salt
2 1/2 c hot water
6 c flour

Put 2 c flour in mixing bowl. Add the sugar, milk, yeast and butter. Add the hot water. Mix. Add the salt and mix. Add remaining 4 cups of flour. Still in the mixer, rise for 1/2 hour and then mix a few times. Cover and rise 1/2 hour again still in the mixer. Punch down and shape into loafs (it's pretty sticky, and I don't really touch it for the most part, just dump it in). Place in two greased loaf pans. Rise 1/2 hour. Bake at 350 for 20 mins.

This recipe takes much longer than the wheat bread, but is wicked good.

Well I am in the last stage of the white bread rising, I am excited to try it out. The wheat bread sounds delicious and once I get all of the ingredients for that I will be trying it also. Thanks for all your inspiration and encouragement to eat better. You are the best!
