Nothing better than smelling fresh bread baking, except eating that warm bread with a little honey. I bake my bread in the oven in the winter, but it is just too hot in the summer. I get out that wonderful machine called the bread machine. So easy to use, just put your ingredients in and walk away. I try be around when that beep goes off that lets me know the bread is ready. It seems to get a little tough if left in the machine after it is ready. I let my bread cool slightly and then use an electric knife to get nice slices.
Here is my recipe it makes a large 2 pound loaf of bread:
Bread Machine Recipe
1 1/2 cups goat milk (I heat it up to room temperature)
3 tablespoons butter (room temperature)
1 tablespoon molasses (honey or maple syrup will work just fine too)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups white whole wheat
1 cup whole wheat
1/4 cup flax seed
1 1/2 cups yeast
Place all ingredients, in the order listed, in the bread pan.
