Yummiest Bread Yet!

So I think I have found my favorite 'regular bread" recipe.  I have been experimenting with whole wheat, etc.  The last time I baked, I added an egg--and the bread is SO yummy! 

So, here is my variation...

Heat 2 1/2 c milk and 2 T butter 3 minutes (1 minute at a time) in micro to 110 degrees.

Stir in 1 tsp sugar & 1 tsp salt. 

Add 1 packet of yeast & wait 'till it's all bubbly.

Add in some molasses (around 2-3 T) and 1 egg.

Add in flour, 1 cup at a time (around 5-6 total), starting with 1 cup of whole wheat flour, then use regular bread flour.  You could use more whole wheat, but the bread doesn't rise as well.

Dump onto a floured surface and knead until 'satiny'--about 5 minutes.

Let rise 1 hour in oiled boil (just enough to lightly coat the dough--I use olive oil or coconut oil).

Punch down, divide, shape into loaves and put into greased pans.  Let rise 1 hour.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. 

I am having so much fun baking bread--and even showed my new friend how to make bread today! I hope you enjoy the recipe!  :-)
