I can never seem to find my wife's bread recipe when I am ready to make bread in the
evening as the boys and I make dinner. I more or less seem to remember it and simply
dump the components into the bread maker. It
seems to work out pretty well so far.
Tonight I am trying to make a raisin bread using the bread maker. My wife pulled out
her generic bread recipe so I thought that I would put it up on my blog so that I
can find it later when I need it.
1 cup water (maybe a touch more)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoon honey
1.5 cups un-bleached all purpose flour
1.5 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons dry yeast
Bread maker option 1 (basic bread)
1.5 lb option (instead of the default 2 lb)
It should take about 2:40 to make the bread with the machine.
If you manually bake it in the bread maker it is about 35 minutes bake time. I would
suspect that in the oven @ 450 degrees it would be about 20-30 minutes.
This is a pretty good generic recipe that you can modify to create your own variations.
