I take some time to grind a whole bunch of wheat and then I fill quart size Ziplock bags with the dry ingredient from the best whole wheat bread recipe that I have found.
Here is what each bag holds:
1 1/2 tsp Real Salt
3 1/2 C fresh whole wheat flour
2 tsp Dough Enhancer
3 TB Vital Wheat Gluten
1 1/2 tsp Saf Instant Yeast
I make sure to put the yeast in first because the instructions in my bread machine manual says to put the yeast in last so if I put in the bottom of the bag it comes out last.
When I am ready to make a loaf of bread here is all I have to do:
Fill up a measuring cup with 1 1/2 cups of lukewarm water, 2 Tbsp. of oil and 2 Tbsp. of honey. I dump that in first then I dump in my bag and turn on my bread maker. You can go here to see what I do after the dough is done because I always bake my bread in the oven and not in the bread maker.
It looks like this when it is done in the bread maker:
And then it looks like this when it is done baking:
I store these bags in the freezer because the freshly ground flour lasts better if it is frozen. It really makes making homemade bread so much easier!
