Tip# 31 A Lazy Way to Bake Bread

WOULD YOU BELIEVE: There is a way to make bread without having to knead it. (We all need bread, but we don't have to knead it.)

SOME FACTS: Making your own bread can be very easy, if you purchase a new invention, the bread machine. These machines cost between $125 and $300, but they're well worth the price. They make delicious whole-grain breads with little effort on your part.
For most of these machines, all you do is put in the ingredients, press the button, and the machine does the mixing, the kneading, the rising and the baking, all on its own. You can customize your bread with your favorite ingredients such as raisins, cinnamon, apples, and whatever you might fancy. While your bread is baking, you can do something you'd rather be doing. The machine will let you know when the bread is ready.
WHAT YOU CAN DO: Try making bread in an automatic bread maker.

Automatic Whole Wheat Bread

3C Whole wheat flour 1½ tsp. Salt
1½ Tbsp. Blackstrap Molasses
3/8 C Soy milk
1C Water
1½ tsp. Dry yeast

Your bread machine will have full instructions, which vary according to the brand. Follow them faithfully, and you'll have delicious golden-brown bread in about four hours. But during that time, your machine will be doing all the work! (For another delicious recipe, see Whole Wheat Honey Bread, below).
To make your bread baking even easier, find and use various organic whole grain bread mixes. They offer rye, whole wheat, spelt, kamut, and whole grain. Each mix will cost about the same as a pre-made whole grain loaf, but the taste of fresh-baked bread is so much better that it's hard to make a comparison. Makes one, 1½ lb. loaf or 18 portions.
