I used to make bread totally by hand. I like kneading the dough. It feels good in my hands.
Now I use my mixer to knead the dough cause this way I don’t get my hands covered in flour and miss an important phone call or let spit up dry all over Sadie’s sleeper while I wash them off.
It still takes the same amount of time to mix the dough, it’s just tidier.
And it looks good doing it. Which I can’t always claim about myself.
Anyway, this is what it cranked out the other day.
I’ve been making this bread since we got married. It’s whole wheat, though I don’t know why it’s called that because half the flour is white.
Oh well, it’s delicious.
I eat half a loaf smothered in butter before I get them put away. It’s my reward for all my hard work. Setting up the mixer takes time and it’s heavy!
