Bread Loaf

I decided to make garlic bread with my pasta so I decided to make up a recipe for it and it turned out great expesially for the first time! To make it into garlic bread I just used a cooking brush (those things people usually use to brush marinade on meat) and brushed some olive oil onto each piece and sprinkled with garlic salt.

Bread Loaf

-2 tbsp active yeast –1 1/3 cup warm water  -1 tbsp. brown sugar  -1 ½ tsp. salt  -2 tsp. olive oil  -1 tbsp. olive oil  -4 tsp. baking powder  -1 tsp. baking soda  - 2 cups of whole wheat flour and 2 cups of white flour
-Mix 2 tbsp active yeast and 1 1/3 cups of warm water and let yeast dissolve and foam.
-Add 1 tbsp. brown sugar, 1 ½ tsp. salt, 2 tsp. olive oil, 4 tsp. baking powder and 1 tsp. baking soda.
-Add the 4 cups flour and knead on lightly flowered surface.

-Form into a ball and place in greased bowl, cover with towel and let sit for 30 minutes.
-Form dough into two  nine inch long loaves, cover with towel and let rise 20 more min.

-After loaves have risen cut a long slit down the middle and using a cooking brush brush each with the 1 tbsp. of oil.

-Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius or 302 degrees Fahrenheit.
-Bake for 35 minutes.

Makes 2 loaves, 13 slices each
1  slice is app. 70 calories.
Great for garlic bread or making bruschetta (which i will totally put a recipe for eventually!)
