Baker’s Recipe: Warcraft Freshly Baked Bread

Cataclysm is finally here, and while I’m waiting a few weeks before plunging into the destroyed depths of Azeroth, it isn’t stopping me from coming up with a few classic recipes to pass the time. The most basic isn’t just for World of Warcraft fans – freshly baked bread is one of those simple dishes that’s so easy, you won’t even believe how impressed people are by it. Word of advice: bread takes a while to make – this recipe requires at least two hours!

Makes 1 loaf

Ingredients
2 cups white flour, plus extra for dusting
2 cups wheat flour
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup water
1/8 oil
1/8 honey
1 packet yeast
1/2 teaspoon of salt

Equipment
Mixing bowl
Measuring tools
Cutting board
Bunt pan
Thermometer
Dish towel

Directions
Combine the milk, honey, water and yeast and heat it until it comes to the temperature of 110 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, combine a half the flour, yeast and salt. Mix in the liquid, alternating with the left over flour, until the dough is smooth and even.

Knead the dough for a few minutes on a clean surface dusted with flour then cover it with a towel and let it rest for 10 minutes. Shape the dough by stretching it out and rolling it over on itself. Fold the edges underneath it and put it into a greased pan. Cover and let the dough rest for an hour until it has doubled in sized.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Bake for 35 minutes.
