Kaelan, my beautiful 11 year old daughter, will be writing homemaking posts on Fridays. I hope you enjoy her first piece.
Making Cinnamon Bread
Mixing yeast, luke-warm water and honey.
You can see how much yeast can rise in a short matter of time.
The honey helps the yeast "grow" as it is proofing
Pouring the water in the Bosch. It was very difficult
as I was pouring it with one hand and taking the picture with the other.
Honey and cinnamon in great amounts.
The finished product.
Whole Wheat Bread
(Or any kind of flour you may have!)
Sue Greggs Lunches and Snacks cookbook
AMOUNT: 2 medium loaves
Bake 350* for 35 to 40 minutes
1. Blend ingredients in a glass measuring cup with a wire whisk,
(I just use a fork.), or spoon in order listed. Allow to stand until
mixture bubbles up, about 5-10 minutes (this is called proofing the yeast):
1/4cup water, very warm but not hot
1 Tbs (1 package) active dry yeast
1 Tbs honey
2. In large mixing bowl, (we use a Bosch), mix in with a wooden spoon:
2 cups water, very hot but not boiling
2 teaspoons salt
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup veggie oil (best to put oil in first, then honey.)
3. Blend in thoroughly with wooden spoon:
whole wheat (you can use any flour you want.)
4. Blend in, in order listed while easy to stir, then turn dough out
of bowl onto a floured bread board to knead in flour that remains:
3 more cups
whole wheat (again any flour that you want)
5. Knead for about 10 minutes, adding extra flour as needed
6. Place dough in a large greased bowl, cover with a towel and set in a warm place at about 85* or on a over a bowl of hot water. Let dough rise until double in size, about 1-1/2 hours.
7. Punch down the dough with your fist, (She said first!) divide it in half and shape each piece into a loaf
8. Set loaves in a greased bread pan, cover with towel, let rise in warm place until double, about 30-45 minutes.
9. Bake at 350* for 35-40 minutes until golden brown on bottom. Turn loaves out and lay on sides an a cake rack to cool. Cool completely before slicing.
This is Anita's last daughter who enjoys cooking.

Peace, Joy, Happiness!
