Identical bread machines keep busy most every day at our house. One is for wheat bread made from freshly ground, hard, white wheat. . .and the other is for gluten-free bread made from bean flours, potato and tapioca starch, and other unusual ingredients like apple cider vinegar. Everyone in the family knows how to fill the cannister with ingredients and start a fresh loaf. Cooperation makes the task lighter and fresh baked bread more abundantly available. Here's our simple recipe for wheat bread.
Wheat Bread Recipe
*for automatic bread machine*
1 cup warm water
3/4 tsp. active dry yeast
1/4 cup Florida Crystals (unbleached sugar)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp. REAL salt
Place ingredients in bread machine and push 'start'. If the dough is too dry, add more water 1 tsp. at a time. If it's too moist, add more flour until the machine kneads a perfect ball of dough.
Yummy toasted and served with Smart Balance and strawberry jam!
*May adjust types of flours used to only all-purpose or 100% whole wheat.
