3 purple lies

Yeast obsession. Not infection. Obvs.

Month two of more bread making and less bread buying is almost complete.  I still have to purchase of loaf of bread in 2013.  High fives all around.

This month's successful recipe is brought to you by our friends at Kitchenaid...you know, those guys who made the handy dandy mixer bowls that do all the work for you?  My dearest snister, Kyla introduced me to this recipe.   We're loving it in this house and it disappears as quickly as you can say, twice a day: "What do you want for a snack, Lucia?  Peanut butter and honey, please"

This recipe is Lucia and Willis approved.
I look forward in the upcoming weeks to sharing all the awesome recipes you have shared with me !


1/3 Cup, plus 1 TBL Brown Sugar
2 Cups warm water (105-115 deg F)

    2 pkg (4.5 tsp) active dry yeast
      5-6 Cups whole wheat flour
        3/4 Cup powdered milk
          2 tsp kosher sea salt
            1/3 cup oil

Dissolve 1TBL brown sugar in warm water in small bowl. Add yeast and let mixture stand.

Place 4 Cups flour, powdered milk, 1/3 cup brown sugar and salt in mixer and mix on speed 2 for 15 seconds. Continuing on Speed 2, gradually add yeast mixture and oil to flour mixture and mix about 1 1/2 minutes longer. Scrape bowl if necessary.

Continuing on speed 2, add remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time, and mix until dough clings to hook and cleans sides of bowl, about 2 minutes. Knead on speed 2 about 2 minutes longer.

Place dough in greased bowl, turn to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm, draft free place about 1 hr or until doubled in bulk.

Punch down dough and divide in half. Shape into loaf and place in greased 81/2X41/2X21/2-inch loaf pan. Cover and let rise in warm place 1 hr or until doubled in bulk.

Bake @ 400 F for 15 min. Reduce oven to 350F and bake 30 min longer. Remove from pans immediately and let cool on wire racks.
