Farmhouse Bread

Farmhouse Bread | Crumbs and Chaos

Freshly baked bread… slightly salty butter…homemade blueberry jam…your taste buds are in heaven.

There is an incredible satisfaction that comes in making your own bread.  A few simple steps, a little time and you will have a little heaven of your own.  Bonus…your house will smell amazing in the process.  This bread takes toast to a whole ‘nother level.  I love that this recipe makes 2 loaves, although at our house it doesn’t last long!

I don’t make bread on a regular basis.  But seeing how easy and almost effortless this recipe is, that may change very quickly.  We’ve loved it all by itself, as toast and it would be fabulous with a hot bowl of soup.

Farmhouse Bread

Yield: 2 loaves

Ingredients

  • 3 cups BREAD FLOUR
  • 1/3 cup HONEY
  • 1/4 cup CANOLA OIL
  • 1 Tablespoon SALT
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons ACTIVE DRY YEAST
  • 2 1/4 cup WARM WATER
  • 3 cups ALL PURPOSE FLOUR
  • 1 Tablespoon OLIVE OIL

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine bread flour, honey, canola oil, salt and yeast.
  2. Add warm water to the bowl and stir together until combined.
  3. Mix in 1 cup of all purpose flour at a time until the dough is mixed together.
  4. Knead by hand or with a dough hook for about 5 minutes until smooth.
  5. Coat the inside of a large bowl with olive oil and put the dough in it. Cover with a dish towel and set in a warm place to rise for about an hour or until double in size.
  6. Grease two loaf pans. Divide dough into 2 equal portions and shape each piece into a rectangle and roll up into a loaf shape and place into pans.
  7. Cover the pans loosely and let rise again for another hour.
  8. Preheat oven to 375°. Place bread in oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden.
  9. Let cool in pans for 5-10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
