We are 3 friends, who also happen to be moms of 7 boys and 1 cute baby grand-daughter. We love to craft, DIY, cook, remodel, refinish and redo. Pretty much anything crafty we like to do it. We live in Tri-Cities, WA which is pretty much a desert. When you think of Washington most of you are thinking "desert" that can't be so, Washington is so green. Not so much where we are from. But it's a wonderful place to raise our family.
This is a really easy bread recipe. I am not a baker at all and baking is slightly terrifying to me. I need the easiest recipes to even attempt to try it. Here is the recipe I used:
6 1/2 to 7 cups of flour
2 pkgs of 1/4 oz Quick rise yeast
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. salt
1 1/4 cups water
1 cup milk
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
In large mixing bowl, combine 3 cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Mix well. Combine water, milk, and oil. Heat to 120F to 130F. Add to flour mixture. Blend at low speed until moistened and then beat 3 minutes on medium speed. By hand, gradually stir in remaining flour to make firm dough. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic. This should take about 5 to 8 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place. It should double in size in about 25 to 30 minutes. Punch down dough. Divide into 2 parts. On lightly floured surface roll each half to 14 x 7 rectangle. Starting shorter side, roll up tightly pressing dough into roll with each turn. Pinch edges and ends to seal. place in greased 9 x 5 bread pan. Cover and let rise for about 15 to 20 minutes. Bake at 400F for 35 to 40 minutes until golden brown. Remove from pans and let cool.
This was super easy to make. Believe me if I can make this you can make this. ~~ Lindsay
