I'm Makin' Real Good Bread
I made some fresh bread to go with my soup the other day, and I thought I'd share the recipe with you. It's insanely easy because you don't have to knead it, and it only rises for half an hour. It makes a dense loaf that's perfect for sandwiches. I like to use whole wheat flour but I have also made it with white flour and that tastes delicious too. This is perfect in the morning with homemade jam...check out my recipe for that here. Enjoy! Hope you all had a happy, hopeful and happenin' weekend!
Yummy Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread
1 Package Dried Yeast
1/2 Tsp Sugar
Two Cups Warm Water
1lb 2oz Whole Wheat Flour (Approx. 4 Cups)
1 1/2 Tsp Salt
2 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast (Optional)
3 Tablespoons Sesame Seeds (Optional)
Any other seeds/grains/spices you would like to add!
Dissolve yeast in a cupful of water with the sugar. Leave 10-15 mins. Grease a bread tin (I line mine with parchment paper as well). Combine all other ingredients, then add yeast liquid and water to make a sticky dough. Spoon into bread tin. Cover and let rise in a warm spot for 30 min. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. After bread has risen bake for 30 minutes. Cool and eat!
