Bread Making Tips
The key to light fluffy bread? Plenty of kneading. This recipe provides for frequent kneading. Be sure to punch the dough thoroughly, so it is smooth and elastic, with no air bubbles. Be sure to follow the same rule when you form the loaves or buns.
Three Hour Bread Instructions
Mix in small bowl and let stand for 10 minutes:
2 c. lukewarm water
1 tsp. sugar
4 tsp. yeast
In very large mixing bowl, put:
2 c. boiling water
1 tsp. vinegar
Once cool, add the following:
¼ c. oil
4 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. salt
Mix until eggs are broken, add 1 cup flour, beat well.
Add flour a cup at a time; enough to make a soft, but not sticky, dough. Here’s the fun part: you can use all white, or half whole wheat, or even some whole grains, to make the bread you want. Just remember to keep the dough soft, so the bread will cook evenly. Mix the flour in thoroughly after every addition.
Once dough is mixed, cover with a clean cloth; let rise and knead down every 15 minutes for the first hour. Form loaves or buns and let rise for approximately one hour. Bake at 350º F. for about 30 minutes, until the crust is the color you desire.
