Episode 174 - Homemade Bread & Tag (3rd Challenge)

Okay, here is my 3rd and final challenge for the weekend. I hope you will all be able to participate!! Just leave a link to your project in the comments of each post.



The machine that I used to grind the wheat is called a Whisper Mill but I prefer the newer type of wheat grinder called the Nutrimill.

The machine that I used to make & knead the bread is called a Botsch.

You can get these along with the dough enhancer, wheat gluten, pans, and bags I used from www.pleasanthillgrain.com.

Here is the ingredients for the bread recipe.....

Add 3 1/2 cups warm water, 1 1/2 Tbsp yeast, and 1 Tbsp honey in a mixing bowl. Mix together and then let sit for 8 minutes.

Add 2 cups white flour, 2 cups wheat flour, 1 egg, 1/4 cup oil, 3/4 cup honey, 2 tsp salt, 2 tsp dough enhancer, 2 tsp wheat gluten to the mixer and mix together.

Add 5-6 cups wheat flour until the dough pulls off the side.

Knead in the machine for 8 minutes.

Separate into 3 loaves and add them to greases pans.

Let rise on the counter or in a warm oven until doubled.

Bake at 350 for 30-33 minutes.

Eat it up! Yummy!!

  1. Bread looks awesome. What kind of machine do you use?? I'll bet all of those ingredients aren't available in the little town where I live--dough enhancer and wheat gluten. Never seen those in the stores here. And wow! You grind your own wheat! Did you get the machine, etc, through the church? (DH is LDS)

  3. Wow the bread looks delicous. I just happen to be making some banana nut bread myself this weekend. It will be a little surprise for my husband who is leaving for a desert trip with the guys for a week. I have the kitchen cartridge so I think I will have to make a tag for him.

  4. That bread looks like trouble!
    It was so comical to watch a video where you were not speaking, I really missed your personality.
    You looked SO serious,I hope you weren't nervous? I love it when your DH wipes down the micro, so sweet. Two thumbs up !

  5. Wow the bread looks so good! I have never seen a machine like that...is it a food processor of some sort? Curious why you grind your own flour and if you always do that?

    The tag was very cute too!

    Your bread looks wonderful!! I'm so impressed with you special ingredients--dough enhancer, wheat gluten and freshly ground flour!! Last weekend I went to a bread making class and during this past week I've made cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls. Will definately try loaves this week. TFS.

  13. Great video! I'm also wondering about your machine--it looked like you ground the wheat, mixed the ingredients, and kneaded the dough all in one machine? Great idea on a cold, cold, day!

  26. Robyn HELP! Approx how long does it take to ge the dough to double? Also, my daughter and I left out the enhancer and gluten..is that ok? Made it in my Kitchen Aid stand mixer and the thing was nearly smokin! Can I put this in my breadmaker? We will see shortly how this works out! Oh, we didn't have 3 pans so we took a square pan and divided it with foil. Not sure about that either. We love your videos! Thanks!

  41. Lovely Bread Robyn. Do you have to grind your own wheat, or can you buy it already ground? I wish I was your neighbor! (maybe you'd let me come scrap with you!) TFS

  42. OK!!! You truly are an inspiration! Married, 5 children, marathon runner, crafter, inventor, and now bread maker...not to mention everything else that you do.
    I am married, no children, and here I sit on the computer getting nothing done. I have over 40 years worth of pics to scrap.
    Thank you so much for all of your time. We all sooo appreciate you, Robyn.

  59. Wow!! I made this bread using my Kitchenaide stand mixer with the dough hook. Didn't have the dough enhancer, but had everything else. It came out WONDERFUL!!! DH and I had it toasted with butter and honey for breakfast this morning! YUMMO!!! So, if you can't find the dough enhancer, don't let it stop you from baking this awesome bread recipe! It will still be delicious!!! Thanks so much for sharing, SuperRobyn!!!

    Blessings and hugs!

  60. You are a wonder woman! I was waiting for you to tell us you had the bees & processed your own honey or a farmer & harvested your wheat.ROFLOL! What don't you do? I don't know how you do it all!!! Martha Stewart, watch out!!!

    I did buy bread flour & yeast so this helps me get into the mood of digging out my bread machine & making some fresh bread. Warm with melting butter. MMMMMMM!

  68. I guess I need some fresh bread for dinner now- I will try yours on a day with more time- not 1 hour before dinner LOL!
    FYI some of the people making comments did not think they could get dough enhancer and gluten etc in their area- it is sold at target.
    Thanks for inspiring me to get going on bread making again.

  70. Robyn, This is amazing. I love homemade bread. I use to make it when my boys were small. I used a bread machine nothing as nice as what you did. No cooking for me today. I am not feeling up to it but I did make a card for my Mother in Laws 90th birthday in her favorite color and black. here's mine

  72. My husband watched this video with me and he LOVES bread and honey so I might actually have to break down and make this bread for him! And I made a tag it's under my blog "Scrapin' it up". I made it to go along with our one year anniversary coming up in March! Thanks for the video and the recipe! We really enjoyed it!!

  78. DH bought me the Bosch and the mill for Christmas :):):) LOVE The Bosch - haven't tried the mill because I'm working my way through 50lb bags of bread flour and whole wheat flour. I look forward to trying it. I use a fabulous honey whole wheat recipe (I use agave) that is out of this world from the blog "A Year in Bread."

  80. That bread looks delicious! My mom used to bake bread when I was a kid, but I've never done it b/c I thought it was too complicated. You make it look so easy, I might have to give it a try. I don't have the fancy mixer/grinder though!! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I love the smell of bread coming out of my oven. I haven't made bread for so long. I am motivated to make some this week. Hope I can find the time. My youngest daughter is trying out for a play today and if she makes it, she will be busy every night until 8:30. I'll have to find some time to make some cards and bake bread. Yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Just finished making the bread recipe - YUMMY. It is totally foolproof - I didn't have the wheat enhancer and I wasn't overly cautious with measuring the ingredients - and it turned out wonderfully delicious! My only issue is the recipe called for so much WW flour, that it nearly overheated my kitchen aid blender (loved your Bosch - maybe once the KA blows up ;-))! I was wondering if one could half the recipe? My gf will be the recipient of one of the loaves - her mother is battling pancreatic cancer and I wanted to do a little something to let her know I care.

    Thanks for the weekend of challenges!
