My mom and dad have always been avid bakers and chefs so it's just natural that I would follow in their footsteps. This bread was invented by my mother, but I made it my own. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, it's seriously easy and very delicious.
Step 1: Heat 1 1/4 cup of water on stove until Temp. reaches 115 degrees F. (It should be warm enough that you can stick your finger in, but hot enough that you have to pull it back out quickly)
Dissolve 1/4 cup of sugar in Water, stir until fully dissolved.
Mix 3/4 cup water with 4 Tbl. of flax. Let sit until needed.
Pour the water and sugar in mixer over 3 Tbls.yeast wait until bubbly (3-6 mins)(mixer should be on low, with dough hook attachment)
