Brown or White Bread

Brown or White Bread

My versatile recipe for brown or white bread is a recipe to keep. We read about bread and fish in the Bible and it is a very religious form of food. It is something you can just not imagine your life without. When you smell that it in the oven you can barely for it to come out to taste a warm piece of farm butter and jam! You can make this bread to enjoy with a bowl of soup, for breakfast toast or a delicious toasted sandwich, either in white or brown. So many ideas, even mini bread loaves on your Christmas table will draw the eye. In this recipe, I prefer using Eureka Mills Flour. If you use plain cake flour, the texture is still beautiful, for me it didn't really made a huge difference not using the Eureka Mills Bread flour. It is lovely flour to work with. You can use fresh yeast for your bread, or packet yeast, knead it well and you have a wonderful product. You can even use older slices to make a lovely bread and butter pudding, which I will definitely share on my blog too at a later stage. A lovely brown bread of bread and butter pudding will be a great idea. It is a must in every home. I have a few bread recipes in my collection, and I try them out at different times. Even a toasted sandwich will taste more special if you use a homemade bread recipe and not just buy the bread. Use a good quality of flour for your bread and keep your dough in a hot spot, on your preheated ovens top or a place near the sun. Your dough will rise quicker. Also keep some butter nearby, to rub your beautifully baked brown bread loaf with butter afterward when fresh out of the oven. You will have your family member's mouths water! Go ahead, be old fashioned and start baking that loaf today!This bread is delicious with all my soups on The Smoking Chimney, but if I have to choose: Definitely Pea and Ham Soup and Chicken Noodle Soup.

Stir in 4 cups of flour.
Leave for 10 minutes until blisters form on the surface of the bread dough.
Pour the mixture into a greased bread tin and leave on top of the stove, or another warm area, to let the dough rise to a level with the top of the bread tin.
Bake for 25-30 minutes at 190 °Celsius.
Test by inserting a skewer into the baked bread. If the skewer comes out clean, the bread is baked through..
