Today was a beautiful day. A little cold in Georgia but nothing to complain about. I woke up very motivated and wanted to make something great. So I started early (like 8 am don’t judge me 🙂 ) Started my dough and let it rest and took my time with it.
So after yet another productive day and several movies( Secret Life of Pets, Trolls and Moana). I was able perfect my bread and really enjoy it. And nothing smells better then fresh bread especially since I have been limiting my carbohydrate intake.
Kitchen Aid Mixer
Oven at 350 degrees
Small pot that can go in the oven
11 x 17 Pan (add like 1 teaspoon or so of oil to the bottom or spray with a non stick spray. )
3 Tablespoons of Granulared Sugar
2 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil
1 Packet of Yeast
1 cup of warm water (115-130 degrees f)
1-1/2 Tablespoons of Vegetable Shortening
1. In a bowl add the warm water and add sugar and stir. Add yeast to the mixture and let sit for 5 minutes.
2. Take the shortening and put in the microwave for like 20 seconds to let it soften and then stir until it smooths and add to the yeast mixture.
3. Add oil. Add flour and salt to the yeast mix. Start mixing slow so the flour doesn’t go every where.
14. Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and rolling over and hitting the bottom sounds hollow. Let sit for at least 10 minutes before cutting …. it should be an hour but I couldn’t resist.
3/4 -1 cup of olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon of Garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon of Salt
Pinch of Oregano
Mix all together and let sit while bread is cooking .
End result !!!!
