Parts of Art by Kaelan

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.

                                                  The dough with the filling which contains:
                                                           Honey and cinnamon in great amounts. 

 The finished product.

My Own 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:
3 cups 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: 
yeast mixture
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.
