Fresh Bread

I made bread with Mary Osei today.  I love making bread.  There is just something about the smell of the rising dough, the feel of the dough between my fingers as I knead it down, the delicate crust that is created on the top of the risen loaf, the smell wafting from the oven, the golden brown tops...delicious in every way.  And I love making it with the girls...especially my chatty Mary.

Here is my favorite (and easy) bread recipe!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  And if possible, make it with your favorite little one.  Makes it just that much more tasty!

3 cups warm water
3 tablespoons active dry yeast
3 teaspoons salt
4 tablespoons butter or margarine (this is what makes it soft and tasty)
1/2 cup white sugar
8 cups bread flour

1. In a large bowl, combine warm water, yeast, salt, butter, sugar, and 4 cups flour.  Mix thoroughly, and let sponge rise until doubled in size.

2. Gradually add about 4 cups flour, kneading until smooth.  Place dough in a greased bowl, and turn several times to coat.  Cover with a damp cloth.  Allow to rise until doubled.

3. Punch down the dough, let it rest a few minutes.  Divide dough into equal parts.  Shape into loaves (or rolls as I like to do), and place into greased bread pans.  Let rise until almost doubled.

4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 45 minutes.  The loaves may need to be covered with foil for the last few minutes with foil to prevent excess browning.

Eat up!
