Homemade Wheat Bread

This is the basic bread recipe I use regularly. I can then use the dough for regular bread loaves, French bread, raisin-cinnamon bread, pizza crust, rolls, you name it.

Homemade Loaf of BreadThis is the basic bread recipe I use regularly.  I can then use the dough for regular bread loaves, French bread, raisin-cinnamon bread, pizza crust, rolls, you name it.

Place ingredients in Bosch Universal Mixer or equivalent mixer:

Add the oil, honey, salt and warm water (heated to 120°).

Add flour, 3 – 6 cups (depends on size of recipe using)

Then add yeast and dough enhancer (gluten and/or lecithin)

Add remaining flour until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

Knead 6 – 8 minutes till dough is soft and pliable (the tricky part).

Then shape dough and place in greased pans.

Let rise approx. 30 minutes in a warm place.

Bake at 350° for 25 – 30 minutes.

Tips:

Type of grain: I usually use 1/3 hard white and 2/3 hard red wheat

Type of oil: I use organic cold-pressed extra virgin coconut or extra virgin olive oil

Use the spoon or cup first for the oil then for the honey so it slides off.
