|BREAD AND JAM: A GREAT WAY TO RE-CONNECT TO FOOD ROOTS|
Bread Recipe (single recipe, you can double with good results)
To the margarine/butter and eggs add:
2 cups WARM water
POUR the wet ingredient bowl into the flour/yeast mixing bowl. Mix well. Stir until the mixture is ‘elastic’.
ADD another 2 1/2 cups of flour. Mix well. You may have to use your hand.
When it works into a smooth ball, place in a large oiled bowl (three times the size of the dough ball). Cover with oiled waxed paper. Put in warm oven to rise for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, gently ‘stir’ down dough, then form into buns, or loaves. Place in oiled pans, cover with oiled wax paper, let stand in warm oven for 20 minutes.
Take out of oven. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Remove wax paper, bake for 15-20 minutes.
If you would like, you can add raisins, candied peel, etc. between steps 4 and 5.
You do NOT need to knead this bread dough. If you use whole wheat you will have to adjust your yeast according to your experience.
