Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Dill bread

10 March 2011

Dill bread

I love baking bread.  It has been at least two months since I have bought a loaf of bread.  My two favorite bread recipes are both from the More-with-Less cookbook.  They are Dill bread and Oatmeal bread.  I also want to try baking Pinto bean bread, but have not gotten the courage yet.  Hopefully, I will have it soon, especially since I have pinto beans in the fridge that I cooked on Tuesday.

The dill bread recipe is as follows:

Dissolve
1 package yeast in
1/4 cup warm water

Combine in mixing bowl:
1 cup cottage cheese
2 teaspoons dill seed
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon soda
1 unbeaten egg
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 tablespoon minced onion
2 tablespoons sugar

Add:
Yeast mixture
2 1/4-2 1/2 cups flour

Stir well to combine.  Let rise in greased bowl to double in size.  Punch down.  Put into two 7X3" or one 9X5" well-greased bread pans.  Let rise again, about 45-50 minutes.  Bake at 350 degrees about 30 minutes.  Remove from pans and brush with melted butter.
