As funny as having bread and milk for dinner may sound, I have to confess...it's one of my favorite meals too. But only when it's homemade bread.
My mom has a bread recipe from her mom that my siblings and I absolutely LOVE. In fact, my three siblings who are still in college each have a Bosch (purchased solely for the purpose of making this bread) and ALL semi-regularly make it! Seriously, we love it that much. :) And since this month's blog circle theme is food photography, I thought I'd share not only some pictures of the bread, but the recipe as well.
Grandma Timms' Wheat Bread1/2 c warm water
2 Tbsp yeast (sprinkle yeast on to water, set aside)
2 Tbsp salt
1/2 c oil
1/2 c honey
4 large eggs
1 can evaporated milk
2 c warm water
1/2 c apple sauce
8 c wheat flour
4 c white flour
Mix all ingredients except yeast mixture and flower in the bowl of a Bosch fitted with the dough hook. To the mixture add 2 C of flour at a time, mixing well in between. After you've added 1/3 of the flour, add the yeast mixture. Continue adding the flour beating it well. Add just enough flour to make the dough slightly come away from the bowl (too much flour makes the bread dry and coarse). Knead 10 min in Bosch bowl or by hand. Let the dough rise in bowl until it is 1 inch above the bowl, punch down. Shape into 4 loaves and put into 4 bread pans that have been greased and floured. Let rise slightly above pan. Bake two loaves at a time at 375°f for 25-30 minutes.
If you feel up to it, you can whip up some homemade jam to have with it too! It's heavenly, and makes a great little gift to pass on to a neighbor or friend.
