Remember how happy I was when I found my Bosch mixer? I didn’t get to make bread once before my finger surgery and the finger is just now to where I can handle the bread dough. It was so nice to see the Bosch doing all the kneading.
The last time I made half a recipe of Dee’s Health Bread, I froze one ball of the dough. When I took it out of the freezer, I let it thaw, then shaped it into the loaf and it didn’t rise again as much as I’d hoped. The bread was ok but it was obvious it wasn’t perfect. Freezing is kinda hard on the yeast. This time, I made two loaves and for the third loaf, I went ahead and shaped it into a loaf, put it into the loaf pan and wrapped the whole thing in heavy duty aluminum foil and froze it. When I take it out of the freezer, it can thaw and rise without any handling and I’ll see how that goes. I’ll let you know.
This recipe is so good! I add 3 teaspoons of lecithin and for this batch, I used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. Yum! Wish you were here to have a piece of fresh toasted bread for breakfast with me!
