Fresh Bread

17 Jan

We have recently decided to make fresh bread here daily (or as needed) instead of buying a loaf of Butternut or whatever’s on sale at the store. The bread we make is DELICIOUS and filling – and we make it 100% from scratch so I know there’s no added preservatives or artificial flavoring or any other garbage.

Homemade bread!

We figured making this switch would also save us quite a bit of money – as we were going through about two loaves a week of the store bought stuff.  The only problem is…..this stuff is soo good that I think we’re eating even more of it than we would of the store stuff! My kids drag me into the kitchen several times a day and ask me to slice them a hunk of the fresh bread! Hubby’s just as bad! And I think we’re all looking for excuses to have sandwiches of some sort for every meal so we can eat it on our bread!

We’re experimenting with adding more and more whole wheat flour and less white flour to try and help it be a little healthier, but I’m starting to think our delicious new money saving habit might be pretty bad for the waistline!

      This is the website we follow for the homemade bread. I wish I could claim it as my own, but it’s from these clever guys:

      We have been experimenting with it a bit and have made a few alterations to suite our family. We now make our large batch into three larger loaves instead of the four the recipe calls for, and we substitute out some of the white flour for wheat. Currently we’ve been doing 4.5 cups of white and 2 cups of wheat. It comes out pretty well if you add 2TBSP of water to keep the moisture level the same. I’m going to keep experimenting as I go though so I’ll keep you posted!
