It’s that time of year. School starts, and you need to make something for lunch for your kids, and yourself. Most people grab the pre-sliced store bought bread and make a quick sandwich. When people think of making bread, they think of hours of work for flaky crumbling bread. But with technology these days, we have this amazing invention called the Bread Machine. You put all the ingredients inside the bread machine and it kneads it and cooks it for you (and it doesn’t heat your whole house!). This recipe is very simple, and I have been using it for awhile. Oh, and it tastes delicious!
Bread Machine Bread:
- 1 Cup Warm Water (about 110 degree’s F)
- 2 Tablespoons Raw (local) Honey
- 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (bread machine yeast works too)
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
- 3 Cups Bread Flour ( I use whole wheat all purpose)
- 1 1/4 teaspoon Salt
Put water, honey, yeast, and oil in bread machine and let it sit for 10 minutes or until it starts bubbling. It should look like this:
(note, the big “bubbles” are actually from the oil. It’s oil not bubbles)
Add the rest of ingredients and turn your bread machine either on rapid or regular bread setting.
After a few minutes it should look like this:
Then the waiting begins! When it’s done you will have a delicious loaf of bread, homemade with very few ingredients! Oh and it’s fresh! You will want to store it after a few days in the fridge if it’s not gone by then, because it doesn’t have preservatives in it like the store bought bread does.
