You’ll have to forgive all the cooking posts lately, and not so many craft or sewing posts, but my sewing machine is on the fritz and had to take a trip to the shop.
Lots of people have asked me for my bread recipe. So I thought I’d share it here. AND I actually measured all the flour this time so I could TELL you how much 🙂 Wasn’t that swell of me??? 🙂
I do mine in my bosch that my lovely inlaws bought me our first Christmas. If you aren’t lucky like me you can make this by hand (I used to before my lovely inlaws spoiled me!)
4. Add 10 cups of flour (I do half white and half whole wheat) while mixing. (if you were doing it by hand – you would be mixing it with a spoon until this part)
A close up so you know what the dough should look like here. A sloppy mess. That you could stir with a spoon but it would be hard to do.
8. Add about 2 cups of flour on top (one cup at a time)
and knead it in until it makes a smooth dough. When you press your fingers into the dough it should softly bounce back to you. If you live in a more moist place that southern alberta (which is most of the world!) you would need more flour.
10. Take the other half of the melted margarine and pour it over top of your dough, using your hand also spread the margarine so it coats all over the inside of the bowl (including underneath the dough). As it rises this margarine will seep into the dough making a very moist light bread. Just do it even though its a big bunch of fat!!! 🙂 (as Homer would say, fat is the vehicle by which taste travels)
If you need any clarifications on anything (or if I missed something which I often do!) then let me know!!
