That is a personal best for me. The bread I promised family is now safely in my freezer sliced and ready for delivery! I love baking on a cloudy cool day. I love the feel of well kneaded dough and creating something from flour, oil or butter, a little sugar, yeast, eggs etc and knowing how pure and healthy my ingredients are. In my brown bread, I used whole wheat bread flour and often I can find it bulk organic. I also incorporate lots of ground flax, chia seed and use pure sugars unrefined like molasses, honey, pure cane syrup, or course brown sugar. I usually use a combination. When not baking with butter, (daughter can’t have dairy or soy right now) I use a real pure quality olive oil.
My white bread is made with unbleached white flour, real butter, eggs, honey, pure cane syrup… I have a few tummy issues that call for the soothing white breads and pasta. Plus, the flavour is absolutely wonderful.
Bread has been baked this way and has been a staple of humans for 1000’s of years. It gives us energy and feeds our brains. If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. Enjoy!
