Since we have been living on the BRAT diet at my house (see previous post--by the way, I think we are over it, whew) for the past week, I really needed to make some more bread. So, I thought I would share my mom's recipe with you all.
It turns out great every time! As long as I don't forget the yeast! :) But seriously, this is so fast and easy with no waiting periods here and there that drag out the process. Just mix, raise and bake. I can have bread made in and hour and a half, easy. Most of that is raising and baking time.
My kids also love to help me make bread and it is nice because they can just sit there adding flour and I tell them when to stop. It doesn't have to be measured super accurately, just as long as you stop when the dough is pulling away from the bowl like I said earlier.
Oh-I almost forgot. This bread recipe turns out fantastic with hard red wheat. I know most people like hard white, but the red wheat bread turns out softer and nicer. White wheat works great, too, but I prefer red. Just FYI.
Anyway, happy bread making!
