Knead it up!
For a while when I was little, mom had a bread machine. She stopped using it when dad started having health problems, so I took it. Granted, it has been sitting on a table for a few months, but today I decided to try it out. I asked mom and dad for a few different flours for my birthday and decided to make something with them. The recipe I’m using didn’t come with the bread machine, so I hope it comes out. I am using a Toastmaster and most of the recipes call for dried milk powder and that’s not something I keep around my apartment. This recipe is from King Aurthur Flour, enjoy!
Multi-Grain Brown Bread
(From King Aurthur Flour)
1 1/2-pound Loaf
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons canola oil (or other vegetable oil)
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons raisins
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 1/2 cups King Arthur Unbleached Special Bread Flour
1 1/4 cups King Arthur Traditional Whole Wheat Flour
3/4 cup medium rye flour
1 1/2 teaspoons medium sea salt
2 teaspoons instant yeast
In a blender, blend the milk, water, oil, honey, raisins and brown sugar. Put this mixture, along with the remaining ingredients, into the pan of your bread machine. Program the machine for basic white bread, light crust, and press Start. Check the dough with about 10 minutes remaining in the final kneading cycle, and adjust the texture by adding flour or water as needed; the dough should be smooth and supple.
