Mmmm, there’s nothing better than homemade bread! Not only is it delicious, but you know exactly what is going into your bread (and therefore your body), and there’s no plastic bag waste when you’re done!
There are healthier recipes out there but this one is soooooooo easy I love to make it. It also makes a nice, light loaf of bread that’s great to use for sandwiches or snacking.
1 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup butter, melted
3 tbsp honey
3 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 1/4 tsp yeast
2 tsp salt
Warm milk and water for 1 minute in microwave. Add honey and butter.
Combine flour, yeast, and salt.
Slowly add liquid mixture to dry ingredients, mixing with a wooden spoon until dough just comes together.
Turn dough out onto floured surface and knead for 10 minutes.
Place dough into oiled bowl and let rise at least 1.5 hours.
Turn dough out onto counter and punch down. Flatten dough out into rough square. Fold dough in thirds and place seam side down in pan. Let rise another 1.5 hour.
Bake 45 minutes at 350 deg F.
