 Here is another recipie I just used the other day for the first time. Came out of The Farmer's Wife Cookbook. It was good. I like it better than my other one I always use. It was a bit more time consuming though. Also the baking time was shorter for me. The last 35 minutes was more like 20-25 minutes for me. Guess it depends on oven.

1 pkg dry yeast

1/4 c. warm water

2 tb sugar

3 tb melted butter

2 cups warm milk

6 cups flour

1 tb salt

Dissolve yeast in water and let stand for 10 minutes

Add sugar, butter, warm milk, and half flour. Beat until smooth. Add salt and remaining flour till easily handled. Knead 10-15 minutes.

Place dough in greased bowl, cover and rise about 1 1/2 hours. Knead down slightly and rise again till double. Divide and shape into two loaves. Place in greased bread pans. Cover and rise till double.

Heat oven to 425 degrees and bake 15 minutes. Reduce temp to 375 and finish baking 35-40 minutes.

We don't eat bread anymore, but I used to make all of our bread needs for a few years.  I'll go check my recipes and share some here!

Here's our family's favorite white bread recipe. It's soft on the inside and a mixture of chewy/crispy for the crust. You can make it in the bread machine, a large stand mixer with a dough hook or even by hand:

Rice Bread:

  • 1/2 cup cooked white or brown rice
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. (1 Tbsp. + 1 1/2 tsp.) vegetable or canola oil

Put these two ingredients in a 2 cup measuring cup and add enough warm water to make 1 1/2 c. Dump into bread machine pan or mixing bowl.

  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups all purpose flour (I've used all purpose or whole wheat, even a mix of both)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. active dry yeast.

If using a bread machine, set to desired setting and start. I prefer to use the dough cycle then take the dough out and form a loaf, let rise in my bread pan and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
If using a stand mixer, add the flour last, cup by cup. If mixing by hand I will also add the flour at the last and then knead for 6 to 8 minutes before letting it rise, covered, in a greased bowl. Form into a loaf, let rise in bread pan and bake 350 for 30 minutes. Remove from pan immediately.

Toasted Oat Bread


Toast oats: Spread oats on 15X10-inch pan; place in 375 degrees oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until light brown.
In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, rolled oats, sugar, salt and yeast; blend well.
In small saucepan, heat milk and margarine until very warm. Add warm liquid and egg white to flour mixture. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. Stir in 3 1/4 to 3 1/2 cups flour until dough pulls cleanly away from sides of bowl.
On floured surface, knead in 1/4 to 1/2 cup flour until dough is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place dough in greased bowl; cover loosely with saran wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in warm place until doubled in size, about 45 to 60 minutes. Punch down dough several times to remove all air bubbles.
Divide dough in half; shape into 2 loaves by rolling dough into two 14x7-inch rectangles. Starting with shorter side, roll up; pinch edges firmly to seal. Place seam-side- down on lightly greased cookie sheet. Cover; let rise in warm place 35 to 45 minutes.
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
In small bowl, combine water and egg white; beat slightly. Carefully brush on loaves; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon rolled oats.
Bake 25 minutes, cover with foil, and bake 10 minutes more until loaves sound hollow when lightly tapped. Cool on wire racks.
