Killin’ It in the Kitchen: Homemade Bread for Every Occasion

Kelsey Gibb and Emily Drewel

Over this past weekend, we decided to experiment with making bread from scratch. One of us is a more experienced “breadstress” while the other is quite the novice, so we decided to ease in slowly. This recipe is great for every occasion and is incredibly easy to make. The prep time is minimal, and you can actually save a lot of money by baking your own bread instead of buying it at P-Chops.

Ingredients:

1/2 tbsp yeast

3 cups lukewarm water

3/4 tbsp salt

pinch of sugar

3 1/4 cup baking flour

3-4 tbsp flaxseed

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mix lukewarm water, salt, yeast and

sugar in a medium sized bowl.

3. Stir while adding the flour and flaxseed

until you make a wet dough.

4. Set the dough in a warm spot with

minimal draft with a tea towel covering

the bowl for approximately one hour.

5. Knead dough and return it to the bowl

for roughly one more hour.

6. Knead once more before placing it on

an oiled cookie sheet.

7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until it

has a golden brown crust. Slice

and enjoy!
