Clean Organic Bread

I grew up on bread. My mom makes some of the most delicious breads, and I have wonderful memories of baking in the kitchen with her. I really want to pass down that tradition to my kids. Plus it gets us away from eating store bought bread that is full of all kinds of yucky chemicals. My sister gave me this recipe, and I double it and freeze the dough after the first rising. If you have never made bread, don't sweat it. Just keep trying if it doesn't work the first few times. We've eaten a few brick loafs in our time.


Organic White Bread ~ Makes 2 loaves.


Mix
5 Cups total of Organic flour (organic all purpose, organic white flour, *organic whole wheat) ~ I only had organic white in the house this day.

3 TBS Organic raw sugar (not full TBS)
1 TBS Sea Salt (not full)
1 Packet Yeast
2 TBS Organic butter melted

Mix 3 cups flour, sugar, salt, yeast, and butter ingredients well.
Then Add 2 1/4 Cups very hot water.
Mix well, then add 2 MORE cups flour and knead the dough.

Place dough in a buttered bowl. Cover with buttered wax paper and dish towel. Place in a warm place to rise. Once it has doubled in size, punch it down. Cover it again and let it rise a second time. Once it has doubled in size again, punch it down, and cut it into two. Shape your loafs and place on a buttered pan. Let it rise for another 30 minutes covered. Bake at 425 degrees for 25-27 minutes. Brush with butter (if desired) and let cool. Then dig into to the amazingly delicious bread you just made! We eat ours so quickly!

{If you plan on freezing the dough. Cut it into two pieces after the first rising, shape into a ball, and freeze it in a plastic bag. When you are ready to use the dough, remove it from freezer, put in a buttered bowl with wax paper cover, and let it double in size. Punch it down and shape it into desired loaf shape and let rise an additional 30minutes. Bake at 425 degrees 25-27 minutes}

*Whole wheat dough makes a heavier loaf.

  1. How many total cups of flour?? 3? or 5? the directions state to mix all ingredients and then add 2 cups of flour. is this an additional 2 cups to the 3 or is it supposed to mean, only mix in 1 cup of flour in the first step then add the remaining 2 cups after the hot water? Let me know! I can't wait to make this!!
