Carrie's Beautiful Bread (ABM)

"I tinkered & messed with this recipe until I got it right. It bakes up high and light and just..well..Beautiful! I dont have good luck baking my bread in my machine, so I just make the dough in it and bake it in my regular oven. I hope you enjoy it! I do live at high altitude (6,000ft), which might have some effect on this."

  1. This was absolutely fantastic and so light and airy. Thank you for sharing this fabulous recipe.
  2. What a fantastic loaf! I didn't have any olive oil, so I used sunflower oil with an excellent result. You didn't specify what kind of "wheat flour" you used, so I used white whole wheat. This Recipe gets the El Hubbito "You can make that Again" award!
  3. I was not able to taste my bread as I gave it away as a gift. I mixed the dough in the bread machine using 2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast to equal the 1 package of active dry yeast. I did have to add quite a bit of extra flour while it was kneading in the bread machine. After the dough cycle, I took it out and put it in a 9" loaf pan. I let it rise again for about 40 minutes. Then baked it in a convection oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. My loaf did not rise high like many other chefs mentioned. It turned out like the photos. Good recipe.
  4. Nice recipe, very high tasty loaf. I baked it in the oven as is my habit when making bread in the ABM. It was a little coarse; I might have let it raise too much. Thanks for posting. . . . Janet
  5. Good recipe. Not my favorite but definitely a good recipe. Thanks for sharing it and allowing me to try it.
