Preparing for s snowstorm that was worse than expected. Getting more firewood while Momma D bakes bread to enjoy during the storm. Finally the Spring storm hits!

100 % Wheat Bread (Read through all of the instructions before beginning.)

1 ¼ cup lukewarm water (90-100 degrees)
2 ½ teaspoons yeast – I use Saf Instant Brand

While that is sitting in the bread maker, I measure out the rest of the ingredients.

¼ cup of Honey or Molasses or Pancake Syrup
¼ cup Vegetable Oil
1 egg

You can measure this all in a 1 cup measure.

Sift dry ingredients;
3 ½ cups flour
*3 teaspoons of Baking Powder
1 ¼ teaspoon Salt

Add ¼ cup of powdered milk to dry ingredients.

NOW.....turn on the bread machine. I have a Breadman Pro brand machine.
I set it to the setting – Rapid Wheat Bread '6'.

Add all the wet ingredients first, then dry on top.

After the last kneading about one hour and 20 minutes left in cycle, I take out the paddle.

I also stop machine about 10 minutes earlier then the cycle goes for.

TIP; I like to use a rubber spatula throughout to wipe down the sides if needed,

* Because I grind my own flour, I need to add 1 teaspoon of baking Powder per cup of flour.
