Great Recipe… Bread Machine Kneeded Bread

My wife makes EXCELLENT home-baked bread. It's amazing what she is able to do with her Grain Mill. There is nothing like having warm bread straight out of the oven.

Because she makes such delicious bread, I asked her if she could put together some recipes that I could share with my family. She did, so I decided that I'd share it with anyone who was interested. Be warned... once you taste fresh bread from fresh milled grain, you will never want to buy processed bread again!

Anyway, here's the recipe:

BREAD MACHINE KNEEDED BREAD
Makes one - 2lb loaf

Set your machine on Bread Dough only setting

2 1/2 C of Wheat Grain (I like 1 1/2 Hard Red & 1 Hard White) should make 3 1/2 C flour

In Bread Machine Combine in this order:
1 1/2 C Warm (110-115 degrees) water
1/4 C Honey or Succanant
1 Tbs Oil (Olive, Canola, Enova - your choice)
2 Tbs Powdered Milk
3 1/2 C freshly ground flour
1/4 Gluten
1 tsp salt

Make a well near the kneeding blade that fills with a bit of the water then add
2 1/2 tsp of yeast

Set and get busy with something else for a while!

When machine is finished with its job, remove dough to either floured or oiled flat surface.

Oil loaf pan generously and set aside

Flatten (by hand or rolling pin) dough and roll like a jelly roll and crimp end to fit snuggly on loaf.

Place top of bread (not crimped side) down into oiled pan, roll all the way around until crimped side is now down and top is oiled.

Place in warm place (microwave or second over warmed to 200 for 1 minute then turned off) for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes preheat oven to 350 for 8-10 more minutes - then place bread in middle of oven for 18-22 minutes (oven times and heats will vary).

Remove from pan to wire wrack and cool completely before bagging.
