Fresh Farmhouse Loaf

Fresh Farmhouse Loaf

My house smells of fresh bread I love the smell. Delicious. I am so happy to be able to do breads like this. And I just wanted to thank my mother, the one who made it all possible.  Thanx mum.

This is a lovely little farmhouse loaf, and it will be lovely to eat it later if I do manage to get the job I am about to apply for it will be a celebratory face stuffing and if I don’t get it…. Well comfort food is in order. There is nothing like bread.

Ok, I made a promise on Facebook a couple days ago, that I would put up the recipe for this bread…. Then everything got busy but now I have the opportunity to keep my promise. Sorry for making you all wait and thank you for your patience.

This is a simple farmhouse loaf, I make it in the bread machine.  It makes about 2 lbs of bread, it is not a small loaf by any means.

  •  3 table spoons plus a cup of water
  • 4 and 3/4ths cups unbleached organic all purpose white flour
  • 2/3rds cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons milk powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt (You may want to cut that a bit if you add salted butter)
  • 2 teaspoons granulated organic unprocessed cane sugar
  • 2 table spoons of butter
  • 1 3/4 tablespoons dried yeast.

Make sure you add it all in the order your particular bread machine model accepts ingredients, in ours we always start with the most liquid and then add the rest on top of that. Many bread makers work this way, but not necessarily all so check the information for your bread maker before you get started.  It’s really simple to use a bread machine you just add them to your breadmaker pan in the proper order as specified by the directions for your machine, then plug the machine in and it is time to press a few of the settings buttons. Set the bread machine to basic white, medium crust, 2 lb for size, then just hit the start button and in a few hours you have this bread. It is nice bread, you may want to check on it a couple times before it bakes while it is going through it’s mixing stages because sometimes it is a little dry then just add a tablespoon or 2 more of water and allow it to continue mixing and check it again to make sure it is no longer dry and if it is, there is always more water. Well now this loaf has been written up as a recipe I hope it brings you as much joy as it brings me.
