    happinessishomemade's Note:

    I had used different bread recipes over the years, and finally came up with my own. I use this recipe for everything... bread, buns, pizza, cinnamon buns, you name it. It turns out every time, and tastes great. My husband loves when I make dinner rolls with these sprinkled with quick oats or poppy seeds! This is my first time posting a recipe- I really hope someone else likes this easy home-made bread recipe as much as I do!

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    Loaves

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine water, yeast, salt, sugar, milk powder, egg, and butter in a large mixing bowl- stir with wooden spoon until well mixed.
    2. 2
      Slowly add the flour while still mixing- you don’t have to add whole wheat flour, but I usually add about a cup just to give it some whole wheat flavor; then the rest can be white flour- you can do half and half also, or just all white- you are the cook, mix it up.
    3. 3
      Continue to add the flour to the dough (you will have to use your hands to mix it now)
    4. 4
      Once the dough becomes more of a ball and not so runny, pour the dough out of the bowl onto a floured countertop; knead dough with your hands for 10-15 minutes, adding more flour if needed. Keep adding flour until the dough is JUST sticky when you hold it- but not too sticky- you don’t want it stuck to your fingers. Also, if you add too much flour, your bread will become heavy- so watch how much flour you add to your mixture!
    5. 5
      Shape dough into ball, place in a large bowl lightly rubbed with oil; cover with a light towel- let rise until doubled in size.
    6. 6
      Separate dough in half; shape into dough roll and place in lightly oiled bread pans. Brush with a beaten egg to give it that nice golden look when it comes out of the oven or brush lightly with water and sprinkle lightly with quick oats or poppy seeds- the possibilities are endless!
    7. 7
      Let loaves rise for 15-20 minutes- this is a personal choice, some people do not like big loaves of bread, while others do- so keep an eye on how big your loaves get, it is a personal choice of course.
    8. 8
      Place in a 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes, or until done.(cooking time varies, depending on oven).
    9. 9
      Let sit in pans for 5 minutes then take the loaves out and set on wire rack to cool.
    10. 10
      Its great for toast, sandwiches, or still hot out of the oven as a snack!

      Quick and easy is a good description for this bread but you forgot Delicious! I used 3 cups of white flour and almost 4 cups whole wheat. I did add a tbsp of vital wheat gluten because I was worried the wheat flour may be too heavy. The loaves baked up light and high. Just before baking I brushed them with egg white and one I sprinkled with sesame seeds and the other an Everything topping. I sent a loaf over to my Mom who just had surgery on her shoulder and she said it was the softest homemade bread she ever had. Hey...wait I make her bread all the time! LOL Thanks for sharing your recipe :) *Made for PAC Spring 2010*
