Chocolate Apple Pie and Wheat Bread Recipes

Chocolate Apple Pie and Wheat Bread Recipes

I am just going to link to the Chocolate Apple Pie Recipe from Kayotic Kitchen. I couldn’t help it. I love eating Hersey’s chocolate with a slice of apple, and I can only imagine how wonderful this will taste. I’m going to try to make time to whip this up this weekend. Wish me luck! With the lovely spring-y weather we are having, I’m going to want to be outdoors digging things up I’m sure.

Also, I’m posting a recipe I found for Wheat Bread. I have been on a bread making kick after hearing that my hours will be cut to 32 for the time being. I’m scared. And definitely trying to find ways to pinch every last dollar. This is a very tastey recipe. The cost will also be kept down because my family is going to start grinding it’s on wheat, so I’ll have wheat flour coming out of my ears, and not have to purchase any.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
  • 4 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 4 tablespoons white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 6 cups bread flour
  • 6 cups whole wheat flour

DIRECTIONS

  1. Dissolve brown sugar in 1 cup hot water. Add shortening, and stir to melt. Let cool.
  2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 4 cups warm water. Add white sugar, salt, and bread flour. Beat well. Stir in shortening mixture. Stir in enough whole wheat flour to make a stiff but not dry dough.
  3. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic. Place in a large, well oiled bowl. Cover, and allow to rise until dough doubles in bulk.
  4. Divide dough into four equal parts. Shape into loaves. Place in greased, 9 x 5 inch pans, turning each loaf over in pan to grease top. Allow to rise until dough doubles in bulk.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 minutes. Let cool before slicing.

This came out beautifully and the flavor and texture are perfect. This has to be my favorite wheat bread recipe so far and I’ve tried several.

If anyone else has any wheat bread recipes, send them to me. Also, any suggestions about grinding and using your own wheat? Love to have you send me those also!
