I have been interested in making my own bread for quite a while now. We love our Beer Bread around here, but, regular white/wheat bread was something quite intimidating to me. Maybe it's the yeast, mixing, kneading, kneading, rising...not sure.
But, this recipe requires no kneading. None! That is my kind of bread recipe. Now, this is more of a wheat bread than white, but, the author doesn't label it as wheat. It has both white and whole wheat flour as ingredients, so, it's just simply homemade bread. If you have been a bit shy of making your own bread.
Fear No More! Here is a bread for you. It crunchy on the outside and nice and soft in the inside.
So Simple Homemade Bread
- 1 tsp. instant rapid rise yeast
- 3 1/2 cups water at room temperature
- 5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 3/4 cups whole-wheat flour
- 1/4 cup flax seeds (optional)
Spray Two 9 x5 loaf pans with non stick cooking spray.
Mix flours, yeast, and flax seeds. Add water and mix well.
Separate dough and pour into prepared pans. Find a warm spot, and cover pans with a damp, clean dish cloth. Let dough rise for approx 2-3 hours or until dough is about level with top of pan.
Preheat oven to 450 degree. Bake risen dough for 30 minutes. Remove loaves from pan and bake another 15 minutes directly on rack.
Store leftovers in secure cover wrapping for up to a week.
