- 250ml water
- 350g bread flour
- 25g whole wheat flour
- 15ml (1 tbsp) milk powder
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1½ tsp sugar
- 1 tbsp butter
- ¾ tsp active dry yeast
It has been a few months since I've made bread. And with a bread machine, how hard is that?
I just loaded the machine with the same ingredients from last time
, but I did not sift the flour. The yeast has been in the freezer for months, so I hope it's still okay.
I wasn't watching it closely, but it didn't seem to be rising much when I peeked. However it's now in the baking cycle and has sprung even with the top of the (vertical) pan. I guess that yeast is fine after all.
Yum! I'm pretty happy with the finished product.
I suppose I could try to back off on the liquid to see about making it a little tougher for sandwich making, but I like it the way it is. I'd also like to increase the recipe to make a 2-pound loaf in a pan, but I'm afraid the dough will rise out of the tin on dough cycle, so I'll have to use the Kitchenaid mixer for that.
