These are three loaves of homemade wheat bread hot from the oven that I photographed in an Amish kitchen in Indiana over the week. Slather a slice with soft butter and you get one word from me: YUM. Doesn't this look tasty? Notice the soft light, the glow is given off by a gas lamp on the ceiling. Makes for a very homey evening atmosphere. Now try the recipe yourself below. Enjoy!
¾ c. sugar
¾ c.wheat flour
1 Tbsp. salt
3 c. warm water
2 Tbsp. (2 pkg.) yeast
¾ c. vegetable oil
2 c. whole wheat flour
6 c. white flour
Mix sugar, flour and salt. Add water. Stir well and add yeast. Let set until it rises a bit, then add vegetable oil. Mix well, then add flour. Mix well. Let rise until double. Form into 3 loaves and let rise. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes.
Is the 3/4 cup flour at the top of the ingredients list whole wheat or white?
Wheat flour, thanks for pointing that out, I'll go in and make it more clear!
Do they poke the top with a fork? I see some marks that really look like fork prints. Is that a trick they use? (I ask because bread is the one thing I am just not good at...not sure why)
Fran, that's supposed the release the trapped air pockets. Hope that helps!!
