It isn’t like I actually did anything. I measured ingredients and poured them in order into a machine, hit a button and there you have it. Still, we don’t need to purchase commercial bread and the house smells wonderful. A step toward off the grid. I made two loaves today. One, a soft wheat bread and the other a light oat. The soft wheat I made based on a recipe I found online, one I’ve been practicing with (getting the rise just right is no easy thing you know).

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons yeast
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 cups flour (half wheat, half unbleached)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey

The light oat recipe I’m still working on. It ended up with a slight tang that I’d like to cut out. Here it is anyway:

  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
