I dont know about you, but during December I do easy meals for everyday dinners. Yesterday was one of those lazy nights.
I made my bread recipe that I use for white, half and half or whole wheat bread.
6-8 cups of flour
2 TBSP of yeast
2 3/4 cups of hot water
1 TBSP of salt
3 TBSP of sugar or 1 TBSP of honey
3 TBSP of oil
In a mixer put 3 cups of flour and the yeast, mix it and add the hot water and mix it again (I get it cold out of the tap not all the way on the cold, just midway and microwave it for 2 minutes, it will be hotter than you can touch, but not boiling or near boiling). Let it sit for 10 minutes then add the rest of the ingredients and knead for 5 minutes. Let it raise until double ( about 30 minutes), knead it again for 5 minutes and then I wrapped it around the Costco Polish dogs. Place it in a greased cookie sheet and bake it at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
If you dont have a mixer, use a bowl, to do the mixing of the flour with the yeast and hot water and all the other ingredients. When kneading, do it for 10 minutes each time.
