I have never really been that great at baking mainly because it takes too long and I don’t have the patience. I decided to give bread making a try a few weeks ago with a recipe that I found online and my loaf turned out looking horrific (although tasted okay). I’m just not very good at following instructions as I always feel it would be faster if I just “eyed” the ingredients (never a great idea for baking.) So on a whim one night, I decided to make my own recipe by just throwing together a bunch of ingredients from my baking supplies. And what do you know, it turned out great! However, I had no recipe as I just dumped ingredients together without measuring a thing. After several more times of dumping stuff together, I decided to try measuring it. So without further ado, here is my homemade “Dump” Honey Wheat Bread recipe (as I like to call it)…
1/8 cup Wheat Bran
1/4 cup Oat Bran
1 cup warm water
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/16- 1/8 cup Flax Seed
2 Tablespoons Honey
1 1/2- 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Salt
2 1/2 Teaspoons of Dry Yeast
2 cups Whole-Wheat Flour + 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour (to be added later)
Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl except for the additional 1 cup of Whole Wheat flour.
Turn on the mixer (with a kneading attachment) and allow the ingredients to mix. While mixing, slowly add in the last cup of whole wheat flour until the dough turns away from the bowl (no longer sticks to the sides) and allow to continue to knead for a minimum of 10 minutes.
Once done, put the dough in a greased loaf pan, cover, and allow to rise for 30-45 minutes. Finally, bake the bread for 30 minutes (or until done) at 350 degrees.
This is just a picture for fun! My 2-year-old was attempting to hep me make the bread. So sweet!
