Bread Recipe


by M. J. Joachim
The recipe…

From the post I published earlier today…

Well, you see, I didn’t exactly write it down…

I do that with recipes sometimes…throw things in a bowl and see what happens.

Here’s what I did…(measurements are approximate)

Step 1:  Put 2 Tablespoons yeast in large bowl with 2 teaspoons sugar
Step 2:  Warm 2 Cups 2% milk. Add to yeast and sugar and let sit for 15 – 20 minutes, until yeast dissolves.
Step 3:  Melt 2/3 Cup butter. Add to yeast mixture.
Step 4:  Add about a tablespoon of salt, maybe a little more
Step 5:  Mix in 2 – 3 Cups flour, to form a batter
Step 6:  Let batter sit for up to ½ hour in warm place
Step 7:  Add enough flour to make a soft, pliable dough, kneading in more as necessary, but not too much.
Step 8:  Grease bowl with butter, set bread dough inside. Cover with linen towel and let rise for 2 – 3 hours in a warm place
Step 9:  Punch down dough & make bread into round rolls; place them in baking dish sprayed with non-stick, close together
Step 10:  Let rise for nearly an hour
Step 11:  Brush with scrambled raw egg
Step 12:  Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit until golden brown on top (40 – 60 minutes or so)

Big, flaky, melt-in-your-mouth rolls…

Must admit, these are positively delicious!

Until next time, I wish you well,

M. J.
