Viktor Frankl's book, Man's Search for Meaning affects me profoundly. Because of the subject matter and the simple truths the book contains, I wanted to relate it to something serious and down to earth. No fluffy cakes with decadent icing for this book, please. Earthy wheat, the staff of life feels perfectly suited to the book.
My grandmother always says that when you bake bread, you should give a loaf away to someone in need. That fits the spirit of the book nicely. Thanks, Granny Goose!
Staff of Life Bread
2 cups of wheat flour(I used a blend of wheat, and beans labeled Ezekial mix. I am sure that you could use all white flour and make a white bread with this recipe)
2 cups of white flour
2 cups of hot water
Mix 10 seconds
1/2 cup oil
2 T yeast
2 T honey(my hubby says I should use more, like 1/2 cup)
Mix 10 seconds
3/4 cup gluten flour
2 T salt
1 c. flour (half white, half wheat) until dough doesn't stick to bowl
Mix for 10 minutes. Put into 5 loaf pans. Rise 1 hour. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
That looks absolutely delicious! Teehee, I can practically smell the lovely fresh bread.. Although it's just my overactive imagination.T_T I love this feature yore doing- I've got to bookmark these recipes :)ReplyDelete
