1 hour homemade bread

>> Wednesday, November 3, 2010


I found this wonderful recipe for my beehives to make for the sacrament bread and I must say it turned out quite delicious! Here's the website with a step by step video.




And here are the instructions


Makes 2 loafs


5 1/4 cup white bread flour

2-4 TBS sugar

1 1/2 TSP salt

1 1/2 TBS (rounded) saf-instant yeast

1 1/2 TBS oil

2 cups hot water


1. Mix dry ingredients. Add oil and water. Mix for one minute then check the consistancy of the dough. The dough should be very sticky, if it is too dry add more water (but not too much)


2. Mix for 5 minutes. Do not add any more flour after the dough has finished mixing


3. Spray kneading surface with cooking spray and lay dough out onto surface. Knead dough briefly until it has a smooth even consistency (This will only take several turns of the dough to accomplish)


4. Divide the dough into 2 pieces (or more if you want smaller loafs) and shape loafs into desired shape and place on greased baking sheets. Cover with a large dish towel and let raise for 25 minutes.


5. While loafs are raising, set oven to 350. When loafs are ready to go in the oven, use a sharp knife (you can lightly spray it with cooking oil to prevent dragging) to make several slashes in the top. Make each cut about 1/4 inch deep at a 30 degree angle. Bake loafs for 25 minutes or until golden brown.


NOTES:


Why bread flour? In short, bread flour helps make the bread loftier and chewier


Why saf-instant yeast? It is a high potency fast acting yeast that can be added directly to your dry ingredients without it having to be put in a starter first


Why slash the loafs? First, for a beautiful visual appearance, and second the scoring allows the dough to expand quickly during baking so it reaches it's maximum volume. It also prevents a 'blow out' if bubbles appear under the crust and then burst.


This was SOO easy, and SOO good, and you don't even have to have a breadmaker!

This bread looks so good! I can't wait to try it. I'm thinking about making it into bread bowls and serving stew in them.

It would be PERFECT for bread bowls! It turns out crispy on the outside and so soft and yummy on the inside.

Bread and bread bowls turned out wonderful! Of course mine didnt look as pretty, but still tasted great. Half of the dough makes two perfect sized bread bowls!
