It’s time to look beyond the soda pop factor and look for new ways to avoid the altered corn sugars, and all you need is some time, some basic ingredients, and if you can spring for a bread machine, it is a definite plus.
Today you all in for a treat, because I am giving you a simple Italian bread recipe that has become the staple bread in my household. We have not bought any commercial breads, with the exception of Arnold’s Whole Wheat (labeled No High Fructose Corn Syrup) since it was discovered.
1 cup warm water
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 cups bread flour
2 tsp sugar or 3 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp bread yeast
Set all ingredients in bread machine in the above order, and set the machine on the “dough” setting. This should take about 1 1/2 hours for the bread machine to process. Once the dough is complete, set on a floured board, and cover. Let rise for 15 minutes. Take dough and set in a laof pan, cover let rise for 30 minutes. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes, and you’re done.
This recipe can also be adapted for making bagels as well. I hope you all enjoy it as much as my family does.
