Hello there! I know it’s been a while but the home renovations have kept me busy for about 6 months. I recently found a breadmaker at the thrift store for $20. After many trials, I finally came up with a recipe that works for me every time! I never knew the joys of a breadmaker until now and our family has enjoyed many loaves so far. In the coming days I plan on posting about my home renovations, especially my quilting studio. I hope that you will enjoy the journey with me through the good, the bad and the ugly parts of home renovation! Stay tuned! until then, go make some bread!
Mojo’s Bread Recipe
mix and rise in the bread machine, bake in the oven
1 c water, very warm
1 large egg, beaten
4 1/2 tsp vegetable oil
3 c bread flour fluffed with a fork
1/4 c sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 1/4 tsp bread machine yeast or rapid rise yeast
Add the ingredients to the breadmaker bin in the order listed. I like to mix several ziplock bags of the dry ingredients to keep in the cabinet. When I want to make a loaf of bread I add the water, the egg and the oil to the breadmaker bin then dump the bag of dry ingredients in. Set your breadmaker for dough only. Once the dough has risen in the breadmaker, turn it out onto a floured surface. Dust the dough with some flour to prevent it from sticking. Spread the dough out into a large rectangle. Add things like brown sugar and cinnamon, chopped nuts, diced chiles, shredded cheese, spices, etc, to the dough rectangle. Begin rolling up the dough. Place the dough roll into a baking pan lined with parchment paper, seam side down.Tuck under the ends of the roll. Place the baking pan in a warm oven to rise for 1 hour. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes. If you want to add spices that will be mixed in the dough, just add them to the dry ingredients. I want to get some culinary lavender buds to make lavender bread.
