Finally - The Bread Recipe!

I have been asked to share my bread recipe that I talked about in an earlier post. Sorry it has taken me so long to get it posted. I got the recipe from - (if you have not checked out this site - do - you will LOVE it!) I changed a few things in my recipe; but for the most part it is basically the same as the recipe on her site. Tammy has so many recipes and it is wonderful because they are "normal" recipes; that use "normal" ingredients that you have around your kitchen. I am posting my bread recipe with instructions using my Kitchen Aid mixer. If you do not have this kind of mixer and knead your dough by hand - go over and get the instructions from Tammy. ( Her recipe is called Herb Bread - (I added the garlic). :)

Garlic Herb Bread

31/2-4 cups of all purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup dry milk powder
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon of yeast
2 cups water
2 Tablespoons oil
2 Tablespoons butter
2 eggs (beaten)
1/2 cup chopped red onions (Tammy's calls for green onions - I like the color the red onions added)
1 Tablespoon parsley
2 teaspoons oregano
1 Tablespoon of Garlic ( the kind that comes in the jar- see picture below.)
11/2 teaspoons salt.

In your Kitchen Aid mixing bowl combine the following: 1 cups of all purpose flour, the whole wheat flout, milk powder, sugar, and yeast. Mix it all together with a wooden spoon and set aside.
In a small bowl combine the following spices: chopped red onions, parsley, oregano, garlic and the salt. Mix together thoroughly and set aside. In another small bowl crack the eggs and beat gently. Set aside.
In a small saucepan combine the following: water, oil and butter. Heat the liquid to 120-130 degrees. When it reaches the desired temperature remove from heat.
Turn on your mixer with the dough hook attachment to speed 2 or 3. While mixer is turning the flour mix slowly pour in the warmed liquid through the chute. Continue mixing and adding liquid for about 1 minute. After liquid is all added add the eggs slowly to the mixing bowl. Mix the eggs into the dough for about 1 minute. After the eggs are mixed in add the spice mixture and continue mixing for about 1-2 minutes. Add the remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl. (This takes about 2 minutes of mixing) after adding the flour mix for 2 more minutes to knead the dough.
Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and place into a greased bowl - making sure to turn once to coat both side of the dough with the oil. Place in a warm spot and allow to rise for 1 hour.
Punch dough down then remove dough from bowl and divide into two equal parts. Roll the dough out and then form into a loaf.
Place into a greased bread pan. Allow both loafs to rise for about 1 hour (or until doubled in size.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes or until the bread is golden brown. Remove from oven. Coat the tops of the bread with butter. Allow to cool - enjoying the wonderful aroma - then cut and serve to your awaiting family - who can not resist being in the kitchen next to this delicious smelling bread.

Hi! I ran across your blog through Tiany's Homeschool Open House, and a few things caught my eye that made me feel I had found a kindred spirit. So I read your entire blog! LOL

I am also a pastor's wife. Reading your frequent references to Scripture, they are always in the KJV, and I see that you and your daughters have the same dress standards that we do. And music - same standards, again! I'm pleased to have found your blog, and I hope to come by more often!

Susan, Thanks so much for stopping. It is always nice to meet a kindred spirit. When I have time I will stop by and say hi at your spot.

God Bless You!

I was explore from Lady Lydia's blog and came accross yours. We have been hs for 7 years now and I enjoy. I have 2 that are done and 2 more to finish. My 13yr. old wants to go to school though but that won't happen. Any how I was reading alittle about your son and I was reading a book about nutrion. It has to do with gluten. They were saying that gluten in food might have some effect on people and with special medical issues. The book is I think The Gluten Connection. It might be worth for you to look into. Take care and God bless.

Hi barbaralee,
You are correct! We do have Zak on a gluten free diet. It is quite a challenge; but hopefully we will see some improvments.
Thanks for the post!
Stop by again.
