...a-mazing bread! We've used it in other bread. You saw the last post about the multigrain bread. I've also used it for our pizza crust.
But, I feel like the real test is making bread with only the fresh milled flour. No, I didn't measure it by weight. I did in fact measure it via the good ole measuring cup. My oldest even helped me get it all put together. I used my KitchenAid mixer to do the hard part for me *mixing and kneeding it*. I am in love with the dough hook, that's for sure.
After allowing it to rise in a bowl *in my oven with the light on*, then separating it into bread pans, and allowing it to rise, it was time to bake it.
And it came out looking like this:
First? Get it out of those pans!
What does that mean? We won't be buying any bread from the store. Woohoo! To make these two loaves, it took a little over 1 pound of wheat berries *$.51* + $.12 *milk* + $.15 *sugar* + $.16 *oil* + pennies for salt & yeast = $.94 ish for my two loaves of bread. I of course need to factor in usage of the mixer & oven, but what would that cost? To get this quality type bread at the store, would cost a bit more. The cheapest bread at the store is loaded with nastiness.
Here's hoping everyone is still fighting the good fight.
