Homemade Wheat Bread Take 2

Adventures in Bread Making

Troy and I decided recently we wanted to start making our own bread. While we both try to cut back on processed flour products as much as possible, our girls do not, and I have major guilt every time I buy the cheap non-organic bread. If the bread doesn't mold, it's probably got some toxic chemicals in it, or at least that's what I tell myself. Organic bread for a family of 6 can get pricey, it practically takes a whole loaf for us all to have a sandwich... surly making our own bread will be better for all of us, and more cost effective... surly. 

I made my second loaf this morning, and it turned out AMAZING! I plan on sharing my bread making adventures via my blog, so that A- I have the recipes saved, and B- you can try them too!

I have the bread machine that my parents used when I was young, it's great quality, I'm not sure they make them like they used to (from what I've read). This recipe is SO SIMPLE, I plan on making some tweaks to make it healthier, but I used what I had on hand to get started. If you have a bread machine, I highly suggest you try this recipe. It only takes about 5 minutes to prep, then the machine does all the work!

Homemade Wheat Bread Take 2
This was my 2nd attempt at making homemade wheat bread in my bread machine. It is soft, with a nice crust, and my family LOVES it. It's also super simple and you probably have the ingredients in your pantry already.

  • 1- 1/2 cups Wheat Flour
  • 1- 1/2 cups Bread Flour
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 4 tablespoons Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Hot Water
Add hot water, yeast, and sugar to your bread machine, let sit until it gets foamy, 6-12 minutes. Add the oil, salt, and flour. Turn the machine on to the white bread function and start.
