Gift in the Mail, and a Gift for You...

Thank you Geninne, for a lovely gift in the mail... even the envelope was beautiful.

It is so wonderful to make friends online and share your artwork... I'm inspired to share a gift with you...

Bread for All
adated from a recipe in
Baking with Julia

1 1/2 tbs yeast
1/4 c honey
1 tbs malt extract
2 1/4 c warm water
1 tbs oil
3 1/2 c white flour
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c each:  spelt, amaranath and brown rice flours
1 tbs salt

::In the bowl of your mixer, proof yeast with the honey and 1/2 cup of the water, letting it sit for 5 minutes
::Combine all flours together in a bowl and set aside
::When the yeast is bubbly, add the remaining water, honey, oil and malt extract, mixing all of the wet ingredients together.  
::Add about half of the flour mixture at low speed, and then the remainder of the flours mixing with a dough hook for about 2 minutes.  Add the salt, and knead for 10 minutes.
::Turn the dough into an oiled bowl and set aside at room temperature until the bread doubles in size.  This usually takes 1-2 hours.
::Divide the dough and knead into shape.  Place in two oiled bread pans and let rise again until the dough grows over the tops of the pans.  This takes about 1 hour.

Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes, or until the bread sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.  Remove immediately from the pans and cool on a rack.
