Homemade Bread

I made homemade bread for the first time last week. I thought it turned out really good. My only complaint would be it goes moldy too fast!

Bread recipe:

5-6 cups of bread flour or wheat flour (I did half and half)

2 1/2 cups of warm water

1/8 cup of oil

1/3 cup of honey

1/2 Tbsp dough enhancer

1/2 Tbsp salt

1 Tbsp SAF yeast

In your kitchen aid mixer, put water, oil, honey, dough enhancer, salt and half of the flour. Mix on low speed. Put in yeast and rest of flour (so that the dough is cleaning the sides of the bowl, it will be sticky). Let it knead on low speed for 5 minutes. Cover and let it rise for 15 minutes. Divide in half and shape into loaves on a cutting board that is greased with oil. Put into two well greased bread pans. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Brush with butter while still hot.

It shouldn't last long enough to go moldy! Sure looks yummy!

Looks great! You needed to have toast 3 times a day!
