Our Favorite Bread Recipe
We make this bread nearly every morning and love how versatile it is. It’s a great texture for sandwiches, excellent for dipping in oil and vinegar and it’s delicious with jam or honey. Best of all, so simple that our seven year old can make it herself!
• 3 cups flour
• 2 tablespoons sugar
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 3/4 cup water
• 1/4 cup almond milk
• 1 1/2 teaspoon yeast
Heat 3/4 cup cold water in a microwave safe container for 60 seconds, then stir in 1/4 cup almond milk and 1 1/2 teaspoon yeast. While the yeast is activating (about two minutes), combine 3 cups flour, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a stand mixer with a hook attachment.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until it forms a dough — a few minutes on a low setting should do the trick. Cover the dough with a cloth for one hour, then transfer it to a greased dish and let it rise for another hour.
Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Enjoy it within the day, store in the fridge for a couple days, or leave it out overnight to get a bit crunchy and then turn it into french toast the next morning.
