Simple Bread Recipe blog post by The Simple Homemaker. This is a wonderfully easy recipe with very few ingredients. I was desperately looking for a recipe that did not include milk, as that would have made the recipe not worth it as a money saver for our home. I can buy a loaf of bread for about $0.90, but milk can cost me $2.99-3.75, with flour, yeast, etc. I would have made the recipe non-economical by comparison. This recipe solved that problem.
So now I want to make more! I want to play with this recipe and use wheat flour instead of all purpose, or even gluten free. I have been toying with the idea of setting up a ‘Mel’s Homemade Goods’ booth at the flea market (or swap meet as it is called in some areas of the country) And good bread is the perfect start to creating the ideal booth (along with muffins and cookies, of course). Here are some recipes I am looking to try:
- Mountain White Bread
- Amish White Bread: This is similar to the one above, so I will see if there is a big difference in texture/taste and then pick my favorite
- Homemade Multigrain Recipe: This is more complicated, but I love multigrain bread so I would like to try it
Then some fun breads that are not necessarily for sandwiches, but would make great additions to any breakfast:
Of course these are not going to be made all in one day, and to be honest – I would like to get a stand mixer first. But that is my plan! Do you know of any great bread recipes that are not for a bread machine? (still see no reason to get one of those) I would love to hear about them!
