Solomon Recipes

I started this blog so I could pass along family recipes to my children. Most of these recipes are Eaton recipes.

But, no need to share the last name Solomon. The majority of the recipes are made by me, Mother Goose, my Sister in law, Gretchen and two friends Leta and HK. If you would like to be a contributor, just holla!

Shhh... if you know us please get to know our blog names! Thanks, Mother Goose!

Homemade Wheat Bread

Wheat Bread

Add the following to the mixing bowl:
1 heaping tablespoon of Baking Yeast
1 cup of honey
4 cups of very warm water

Stir with wire whip
Let rise approximately 15 minutes until yeast pops to the top (Do not go longer than 20-25 minutes)
Put mixing bowl on the mixer
1 tablespoon of salt
1 cup of Pure Wesson Canola Oil

Using the wire beater start mixer on 2nd/ 3rd speed
Slowly pour in whole-wheat flour until no longer sticky (approx. 8-12 cups) (cover mixer with towel to keep flour from flying)
Use one finger to scrape dough from wire beater
Sprinkle top of dough with flour
Loosely cover with plastic lid and let rise for one hour
Knead with hook shaped attachment for 5 min (2nd/ 3rd speed)
Dump dough on counter and divide into four loaves
Get all air bubbles out and put in pans
Cover with towel and let rise for 35 minutes
Put in cold oven (Make sure pans DO NOT touch)
Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees
Remove from oven, dump out loaves, and wrap in towel till cool

My kitchen aid broke around 2 weeks I just mix all ingredients with a spoon then kneed with my hands for 5 minutes. It works the same just takes a little more effort-and elbow grease!

yum, another bread recipe! I can't wait to try it out. Looks like we both will get a new mixer. I have been babying my oster mixer for a while. It's just going to be good ol' elbow grease for me.
