Thanks to a link over at Fat Guy on a Little Bike last month, I found a great daily bread recipe. I use the mixer method (since I lost the paddle to my bread machine). Very simple to mix up the dough before I go to bed and bake when I get up in the morning. No kneading!
Last week I made a loaf nearly every day. This week has been busier and I haven’t done it, but hopefully I’ll have a chance tomorrow night. I think I’ll make 2 or 3 and freeze the extra’s after rising and shaping, but before the second rise.
I made the recipe as is first, then fiddled with it the next couple of loaves. The recipe makes about a 1 pound loaf. I increased it to 1 1/2 pounds so that it would fill my Pampered Chef stoneware bread pan. I also replaced half of the flour with wheat flour. I rubbed a stick of butter over the top when it came out of the oven, resulting in a nice soft crust good for sandwiches.
