Hand Bread

Kneading bread by hand isn’t my favorite task in the world, that’s why I have a bread machine. Tell a kid that they get to make bread and then pull out a bread machine….pppppffffffffttttttttttt. They won’t buy it, much to my chagrin.

That’s why we do hand bread in our house, and by “we”, I mean the kids make it! It’ not nearly as beautiful as what comes out of the machine, nor is it as fluffy as it could be if I took the time to knead it properly, but, really, who cares?! They love it and it certainly make sandwiches at lunch time that much easier. They’ll ALWAYS eat a piece of hand bread.

I’ve included ingredients in the recipe if you want to make it along with the video!

To plan everything out, you’ll need:

1 1/2 cup bread flour, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup oats, 1 1/2 teaspoon yeast, 3 tablespoon dry milk, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons honey, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 cup water.

Happy Kneading!
