This recipe came from the place that I buy my wheat berries here in Georgia. I would highly recommended you look at their website. Check out it out: Bread Becker’s
This recipe makes 3 to 3 1/2 lbs of bread dough and is too large for most automatic bread machines. You may cut this recipe in half to make 1 1/2 lbs of dough for a standard automatic bread machine. This dough may be used for any of the variations.
- 2 cups hot water
- 1/2 cup oil (1/3 c. if using egg)
- 1/2 cup honey (may use 1/4 cup)*
- 3 1/2 tsp. instant yeast
- 1 egg (optional)
- 5 cups freshly milled flour
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1 – 2 Tbs. lecithin (optional)
- 1/2 tsp. gluten (optional)
Combine water, oil, and honey. Add 3 cups of flour, yeast, salt, lecithin, and gluten. Mix thoroughly. Add the remaining flour and knead until smooth and elastic (about 10 min.). Let rise until double. Shape into loaves or rolls or use any combination of the YEAST BREAD AND ROLL VARIATIONS. Place in greased pans, and let rise again.
For loaves, bake at 350F about 30 min. Makes two 1 1/2 lb. loaves.
