Egg Bread with Flax Meal

Good morning,

Here's another bread recipe.  Flax is one of those plants that gives us fiber for linen fabric and seeds for our diets.  Flax meal is said to be good for the skin.  It also adds to the moistness and texture of this bread.

It's so good to be home and able to make bread every day again.    Let me know if you like this one.  :)



Egg Bread with Flax Meal

1 egg

2 T vegetable oil

2 t salt
2 t sugar

2 T nonfat dry milk

1 cup warm water

1 rounded t flax seed meal

3 1/3 C flour

2 rounded t dry yeast

Place all ingredients in large capacity bread machine in order given. Set on dough cycle and turn on.

The first dough cycle on most machines is about 40 minutes. Watch the action to be sure a dough ball forms at least 1/3 way through the cycle. Add a little flour or water if necessary to get the correct consistency. 

When first dough cycle finished, remove from machine and place in a greased bowl for first rise. Place the bowl in a warm place such as the oven with the light, but no heat turned on. If you place it out on the counter in a warm place, cover with a damp cloth. This batch required about one and a half hours for the first rise. Keep in mind that the temperature in your kitchen and the mood of the yeast can change the time required for the dough to rise.       

If you are using crockery or glass pans/dishes for baking, set the them in a warm place, too. I use my second oven with the light turned on.

For this batch I used four small loaf pans and a round pan. Or, this batch will make two standard size loaves.

After the first rise, knead the dough to remove bubbles.

Grease bread pans.

Divide into the number of parts as the number of pans you will use. Shape in loaf shapes, and place in bread pans.

When it is finished rising the second time, bake at 350 F for 35 mins. If using 2 standard size loaf pans, bake at 350 F for 45 mins.

Remove from oven, turn out to cooling racks immediately.
