"Mama, can we have homemade bread tomorrow at the park?" Emily asked. We were in the car on our way home from a weekend trip (this has been a few months now!) - and my heart had mixed feelings.
Getting home from a trip around dinner time and needing to leave the house by 9am the next morning. Homemade bread? Yet, I was also thrilled that she would ask for something healthy and homemade!
YES! Homemade Bread was made!! Here is our very favorite bread ~
Mix together with whisk:
1 1/2 c. hot water
1/3 c. oil (I use 1/2 olive oil and 1/2 coconut oil)
1/3 c. honey
2 tsp. sea salt
2 Tbsp. Lecithin
1 tsp. gluten
1/2 c. ground flax seed
2 c. freshly ground flour
Add 3 c. flour and 1 Tbsp. yeast - mix with dough hook for ten minutes.
Remove from mixer and cover with a towel - let rise for 45-60 minutes.
Remove dough from bowl and hit against counter several times to remove air bubbles.
Shape into a loaf and re-cover with towel. Let rise 20 min. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes - enjoy!
