I love to bake bread because it makes me feel so homestead-y. I used to be intimated by the process, but after buying my KitchenAid Mixer, I find it very easy and enjoyable to make all kinds of bread products. You can easily make this recipe without a mixer if you want to. I’m a modern day homesteader who is not against using modern appliances to bake healthier choices for my family .
I have two recipes that I make – one is white bread and the other is a honey wheat bread recipe. I love the honey wheat, but my boys prefer the white. I take turns making them so we’re all happy. I am going to share with you the white bread recipe today and the honey wheat at a future date.
1/2 cup of whole milk
3 tbsp. of butter
3 tbsp. of sugar
1.5 cups of warm water (It needs to be pretty warm but not hot enough that it will kill your yeast)
4.5 tsp. of yeast
5-6 cups of all-purpose flour (I use King Arthur All-Purpose flour)
Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes
