Homemade bread 

We’ve been making homemade bread for years. Typically we would make it in the breadmaker, but since moving to Colorado we’ve noticed the  bread doesn’t turn out nearly as well since were baking at altitude. Jason searched for a number of bread recipes and after about half a dozen trials I think he’s come up with a winner.

Mile High Homemade Bread 

Makes 2 standard loaves


Ingredients:

  • 1 package of yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
  • 2 1/4 cup warm water (110-115F)
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 1/4 cups bread flour 

Directions

  1. Activate the yeast by adding it and the sugar to the warm water. Stir and let sit 5 minutes. 
  2. Add the oil, salt and activated yeast to your stand mixer bowl with a dough blade. Add the flour and mix/knead  for 5 minutes. If you don’t have a stand mixer you can do this the old fashioned way in a bowl with your hands 🙂
  3. Remove from bowl and place in a lightly oiled oil. Cover and place in a draft free location for 1 hr
  4. Punch down and split in half. Place each half in a lightly oiled bread pan. 
  5. Let rise 30-40 min until doubled in size. 
  6. Preheat oven to 375F. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
