Last week I posted THIS video on how to bake bread. The art of baking bread can be tricky for a lot. My mother baked all of our bread growing up, and for ten children too! She would bake it once a week, all by hand (no mixer for a long time) and probably ten loaves or so. It was delicious and that’s the only bread I knew growing up. I can remember the first time I tasted WONDER BREAD. It was at my friend Wendy’s home and we put butter and sugar on it. I used to love going there and eating her bread and she used to love coming to my house and eating our bread!
My mom also used to bake homemade rolls every Sunday. I learned to make them, my family used to tease me that it was the only thing I could cook!! It’s been a couple of years since I’ve made them, but my family really does LOVE them! So I probably have a little bit of the bread touch in me, since I’m my mama’s daughter!
But THIS recipe is something that EVERYONE can make. I’m not kidding. You use a bread machine to make the dough, and then all you do is shape it and bake it! EASE-PEASY!!!! My husband’s sister, Julie, makes this over and over and over again, and even for her church’s sacrament every Sunday (well at least before COVID-19). My husband makes it a LOT too. He is known for taking it to the neighbor’s, to people he golfs with, and always for us to have around the house!
I guess it’s funny that I’m writing about the art of baking bread, because many of you know I hate to cook. The kitchen stresses me out completely. I don’t like spending any time there, even grocery shopping is one of the worst tasks ever! Thank heavens he likes to cook and even likes to grocery shop! I’ll do the cleaning up ANY DAY!!!
So…. I guess what I’m saying is this….. the art of bread making can be YOUR ART! If I can do it, literally ANYONE can do it! Here’s the recipe and here’s the link again to the video!
3 c bread flour, 1 t salt, 2 t yeast, 2 heaping T sugar, 2 T butter, 1 egg, 1 1/4 c warm milk
Happy bread making friends…. let me know if you try it and how it turns out! You’ll be LOVED by EVERYONE!!!!!!!! Have a great week!
