Homemade Bread+Recipe

I did a Tray Activity with my son, to the book "Bread Comes To Life" 
In the back of the book, it holds a recipe to make amazing bread! Here's how.

















Start with the ingredients of:
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 pack of yeast
1/4 c Vegetable Oil
1/4 c Honey
2 tsp salt
1 Cup of Water -slowly poured in, while mixing.

Mix all together til it forms a lump

{Here are some shots of my son putting in the ingredients :) }




When a nice clump forms, lay it on a floured surface. Let sit for 10 minutes. 
Then Knead 100 times or so, and form into a ball.
If it is too doughy, add more flour and knead some more.












Put ball into an oiled container and roll around, to coat it full, then let it sit, 
covered in plastic wrap (or a cloth) til it rises twice its size.












Punch a hole in center to relieve from air pockets. Knead several times. 
Shape into rectangle and sit in loaf pan and cover with cloth.
Let it rise til it gets higher then the lip of the pan. 
Take plastic wrap off and Cook in oven at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes or so.












Comes out beautifully! Spread butter over top..

Isn't it just beautiful? Slice and serve!












I put butter (check out my homemade butter here!) 
and homemade blackberry spread on a slice. So delicious!

    1. Oh no! How did it turn out? Was it too liquidy or too dry?

    1. Aw I'm sorry! Did you try adding in more flour to soak up the extra liquid? It's weird how some recipes work for some and don't work for others!
