I know that is a lofty promise, but it can be done (I know because I did it!).
(And yes, I know that there are only 4 1/3 loaves in this picture- it’s because we can’t stop eating it once it comes out of the oven!)
I love bread. I always have, I always will. I am a bread junkie.
Homemade bread is especially amazing! But . . . I am WAY too lazy to do it.
I also always snickered at the people who ground their own flour. Seriously, who has time for that?! Definitely not me!
Well, I am now eating my words.
This gal is grinding her own flour!
With three kids, a full-time job, plus doing the cooking, cleaning, and other responsibilities of life, where do I find the time to make homemade bread?!
My husband pretty much thinks I am super woman.
I can whip out 6 loaves of bread from start to finish (that even includes grinding the flour, letting it rise, AND baking time!!) in about 1 hour!
Here is my secret: my Bosch Mixer.
I am not being paid to say this, but I was given a Bosch machine to try out and see if it would work for me and my lifestyle. I was so hesitant the first time I did it- I so wanted to prove them wrong and show them that someone like myself just wouldn’t have time to grind flour and let bread rise and get flour in every corner of the kitchen.
But then I saw how easy it is and once I made my first batch, my husband swore that he would never eat store-bought bread again (he also has made a couple batches of bread when I have been out of town, so if he can do it, anyone can!!).
I am going to share my recipe for basic Whole Wheat Bread that makes about 6 loaves in one hour using a Bosch Mixer:
Don’t have a Bosch machine? No worries!
Here is another Whole Wheat Bread recipe that doesn’t require any type of machinery!
I know that many of you are probably thinking that a Bosch mixer is a huge expense, but the good news is that these machines are made to last a lifetime. I have talked to many serious chefs and bakers (and some not-so-serious) and the Bosch is their favorite machine to use compared to other standing mixers. You can read the amazing reviews on Amazon here.

As I mentioned before, I am not being paid to write this post, but I was given a Bosch Mixer to try out and I can honestly say that I am never going back.
