{little house bread}

Chloe just finished reading Little House on the Praire and we found a Little House on the Praire Recipe book at our library. This is what she chose to bake......

Okay....this is the easiest bread recipe and it is kid friendly, because there is no kneading involved (hardly) and there are only a few ingredients. BUT it taste so good! :)

For 2- 1 1/2 pound loaves you will need-
1. Yeast, 2 small cakes or envelopes
2. Whole-wheat flour, 4 cups
3. White flour, 2 cups unbleached all-purpose
4. Salt, 2 tsp
5. Molasses, 1/4 cup

In small bowl combine yeast into 1/4 cup (bloodwarm) water. Let soak 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine flours and salt, and make a wide, deep well in the center.
To the yeast add molasses and 2 cups (bloodwarm) water and stir. Pour this liquid into the well and stir around and around at the center. Gradually the batter will thicken into a stiff dough. When all flour is mixed in, dust the dough mass with an extra handfull of flour so it no longer sticks to the bowl. Cover with dishtowel and set it to rise at room temperature for about 2 hours, until doubled in bulk.
With a floured fist, punch dough down and turn it onto a floured surface. Knead a few times, then pull into a rope and cut it in half with a knife. Flatten each half into a rectangle and roll up like a jelly roll. Grease loaf pans. Turn loaves to grease them as you put them in pans. {I used cooking spray and just sprayed the tops} Cover and let rise for another 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350* F. Bake the loaves about 30-40 minutes.

* I brushed the loaves with melted butter as soon as they came out......oh my! So Good! :)
