In an effort to decrease my monthly grocery bill and to stretch my budget even further, I’ve been experimenting with making various foods from scratch. Here is a great recipe I found for fresh wheat bread:
Mix into a bowl:
3 1/2 cups bread flour
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 tablespoon salt
Into a saucepan on the stove mix:
1 cup water
1 cup milk
1/2 cup honey
3 tablespoons butter
Add “wet’ ingredients into bowl with dry ingredients.
Add one egg and beat all until smooth. When ingredients have formed a large ball, turn onto a floured surface and knead. Cover for about an hour to allow it to rise. Punch the dough down and allow it to sit covered for another 10 minutes. Divide into thirds and base at 350 for around 40 minutes or until golden brown.
The dough freezes very well so you can keep some in the freezer for use later on.
