I make simple bread by mixing a few ingredients and letting the dough rise in 2 steps. Below are instructions for how to make yeast bread easily.
- 4 cups whole wheat, 2 cups white flour
- 2 tablespoons salted butter
- 4 tablespoons honey
- 3 cups water (~110°F)
- 1 tbsp yeast
Mix water and yeast in a large bowl and wait until it is dissolved, stirring gently. Add whole wheat flour and place in warm location (oven at 100 degrees fahrenheit works) and let rise for 30 minutes. Add white flour and remaining ingredients and mix until dough forms, then place back into oven and let the dough rise for another 30 minutes.
When the dough has risen, punch it down as desired and form it into loaves. Place the loaves on a baking sheet or in bread pans and bake at 350°F 25 minutes or until brown and hollow sounding. Let the bread cool before cutting it.
Enjoy this simple bread recipe! It makes great bread and it's pretty easy, with a total time of under 2 hours. I added cranberries to the batch pictured below, which is quite tasty.
