Faith Family and Feathers

Fun on the farm with faith and family

The best homemade bread!

Leave a comment

I have discovered the most delicious bread recipe and I wanted to share it with the world.  Well to be honest I found the recipe on the internet so some of you may have it already.  I found the recipe under the title of Amish White Bread and made just a couple of changes.  I replaced the water in the recipe with milk because milk makes the bread softer.  I also use bread flour instead of all purpose flour.  The bread flour has more gluten in it so the loaf tends to rise higher.  My family loves this bread and it gets goubled up.  Here is the recipe to make one loaf:

1 cup warm milk (110-115 degrees)

1/3 cup sugar

3/4 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons oil

3 cups bread flour

1 tablespoon dry yeast

instructions:  disolve sugar in milk and stir in yeast.  Allow to stand until yeast forms a creamy foam (about 15 minutes).  Add salt, oil, 2 cups of the flour.  I use my Kitchenaid mixer with the dough hook to kneed my bread so at this point I turn the mixer on and slowly add the other cup of flour.  You can kneed the dough by hand or let the mixer do it for about 10 minutes.  Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in bulk.  Punch down and shape into loaf and place into a greesed loaf pan.  Cover again and let rise in a warm place for 30 – 45 minutes.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until done.

Hi everyone. My name is Brenda. I am 41 and live in South Dakota with my 4 children (19, 17, 12 boys & 6 finally a girl!) and my husband. We have been married for 20 years and lived in the country for the last 16 years. My husband owns a road contrating business and I quit my job as an accountant 10 years ago to manage the bookkeeping side of his business and to spend more time with my family. We raise chickens and turkeys and just added ducks, bunnies and nubian milk goats (I love them!) the kids, the bunnies will be in (or near) their baskets on Easter morning.) I like about anything that makes us more self sufficient. I beliving in making as much of my families food from scratch as possible to control what goes into it. I try to reuse things as much a possible to reduce waste. With my last child I discovered the ease of cloth diapers and fell in love. I made all of her diapers and now give cloth diapers to all my friends having babies. I like crafting in general. Sewing, crochet, needle point, and recently I learned the art of soap making (love it). My husband and I both enjoy home improvement and remodeling. HGTV is my favorite TV station. I keep a nice size garden and like to freeze and can good things to enjoy all winter long. This year I'm planting sugar beets and will try to make my own sugar (without all the chemicles). My husband is a hunter so we enjoy making jerkey from the venison he gets. I'm active in our community by helping in the school and leading Bible study at church. I just love people and love to talk. I hope you enjoy this site and find many great tidbits related to faith, family or feathers. God Bless, Brenda
