• 2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup honey
• 1 package of Hodgson Mill Fast Rise Yeast
• 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
• 2 ( 4oz) unsweetened applesauce
• 1/2 cup vegetable oil
• 2 cups water, warm plus 2 tablespoons
• 6 cups Gluten Free Flour
• 1 1/2 cups Hodgson Mill Soy Flour
Mix together salt, honey, yeast and almond milk. Add applesauce, soybean oil and water. Combine flour and add, one cup at a time to yeast mixture. Keep adding flour until no longer sticky. Knead by hand or with a dough attachment 5-10 minutes. Place dough ball in clean bowl rubbed with soybean oil. Turn oil side up. Cover and let rise until doubled.(1 hr 30 min)
Punch down and divide into 2 equal parts. Form into loaves and place smooth side up in oiled loaf pans. Let rise until dough is above the rim of pans.(30-45 min) Bake at 350 degrees F. for approximately 25-30 min.
Cheat trick: If you are using a bread machine, combine all the ingredients and place in the bread machine and set your machine for the appropriate setting. I used the quick bread setting for this bread. I usually use the dough setting and then bake it on my own. This bread came out better than I expected and I still have some of it. I am trying to make most of my baked goods from home because it is cheaper and safer. I keep reading about all the preservatives that are being added in foods and it sickens me to think that my kids were eating such harmful chemicals. I am constantly looking for new and healthy recipes.
So if you have one to share, please feel free to share and I will let you know how my family responds to them. Once again, thank you for stopping by 🙂
