Lou’s Daily Bread

15 Apr

For Zak’s birthday, he received The Bread Lover’s Bread Machine Cookbook by Beth Hensperger from his sister.  He was really excited to try out some new tips from the book and ran out right away to purchase some gluten, which was an ingredient in a lot of the recipes.  Though this recipe can be baked in a bread machine, Zak likes to bake it in the oven, as the final loaf tends to be prettier.  In my opinion, this was his best bread yet.  The consistency was perfect, and I loved the honey and orange flavors together.  I’m looking forward to more creations from this book.

Lou’s Daily Bread

Adapted from The Bread Lover’s Bread Machine Cookbook by Beth Hensperger

3 cups bread flour

1 tbs. gluten

1 1/4 cups milk

2 1/4 tsp. instant yeast

1 tsp. salt

2 tbs. honey

3 oranges, zested

1 tbs. corn oil

Non-stick cooking spray

Mix all ingredients except non-stick spray in a bread machine.  Set machine to dough (or a mix and rise cycle).  Keep on through first rise cycle.  Remove from the bread machine.

Preheat oven to lowest setting for about five minutes and then turn off.

Spray a bread pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Place dough in bread pan and place into oven.  Let rise for one hour.

Turn oven on to 350º without removing the rising dough.  Bake for 40 minutes.  Let cool 10-15 minutes and remove from pan.
