Honey Wheat Sandwich Bread

Say hello to my second breadmaker recipe! (This was the first one.) I have yet to figure out a good way to make loaves that are more friendly towards the whole slicing into sandwich-sized pieces bit, but I suppose it isn’t too big of a deal. I may just switch to eating more open-faced sandwiches, haha. I sliced it shortly after it cooled this time, so it should make life a lot easier.

I’m probably not going to do anything all that fancy with this. Aside from the apple butter my neighbor gave me, I went a little crazy at Trader Joe’s over Thanksgiving break, so I now also have mango butter, fig butter, honey apple butter and pumpkin butter. :X The possibilities are endless!!! Recipe obtained from this site.

Honey Wheat Sandwich Bread

-4 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
-1/2 tsp salt
-1 1/2 cups warm water (not too hot or it’ll kill the yeast)
-1/4 cup honey
-2 tbsp EVOO
-2 1/2 tsp yeast

1) Add ingredients into the bread pan in this order: water, honey, EVOO, flour, salt.
2) Make a small indentation in the flour and add the yeast, making sure that it doesn’t come into contact with the water.
3) Plug in the breadmaker. Select the whole wheat option, crust color (I chose light) and loaf size (I chose 2 lbs).
4) Press start. :D!

An example of what my church feeds me…
Vegetarian sloppy joes, vegetarian lasagna, homemade wheat roll, split pea soup in a bread roll, peas/corn, pasta, salad with onion vinaigrette dressing, a cookie, a date, a small brownie, a slice of cherry sponge cake and a cup of strawberries/blackberries/blueberries/pineapples. Saturdays are definitely my cheat meal days. I ate that all in one sitting. :x
