I was supposed to make pumpkin pie, with a real pumpkin, but I really don't like pumpkin pie. We do grow pumpkins and use them to make pies, muffins and bread, I just like Hawaiian Bread better. I had it at my Grandma and Grandpa's house and it is good. We found a recipe online for it. Hawaiian Bread We asked my teacher and she said it would be OK to change the activity. We made a half recipe, and it still made two loaves.
First we gathered the ingredients. The recipe uses 3 eggs, so we used one regular egg and one mini egg from our mini chickens.
I read the recipe and put dry ingredients into the mixer bowl.
There is some flour, sugar, ginger, yeast, salt, and some vanilla sugar (because we make our own vanilla extract and it isn't ready yet). We also added some gluten, because at our high altitude, it helps prevent the bread caving in and looking terrible.
We had to warm the water, milk, butter and pineapple juice. We used the microwave.
Then we put the bowl on the mixer and added the milk/butter mixture. I added the eggs.
I added more flour until the dough started making a ball in the mixer.
Just a little more....
You have to knead the dough by hand until it's just right.
Next, put it in an oily bowl and flip it over.
Cover it with plastic wrap and put it in a warm spot to rise. Then you have to wait, so I took my LEAP Math test. :)
Punching the dough is fun. It got big!
I took half the dough, made it flat, then rolled it to make a loaf. Mom did the other one.
Once the dough was in the pan, I put a special Baker's Mark on it, so I would know which one was mine.
The loaves had to rise again, and then we baked them in the oven. This is my loaf! See the dark line across the top? It got SO BIG that it touched the top shelf in the oven. Oops!
