Egg Bread

These days I  have been  milling and baking. Milling? you say, what is this you speak of? ha ha well, let me tell you. I am participating in a grain mill challenge. I was given the privilege of receiving a grain mill to test, review, blog about the process, take photos and write recipes for. It is super exciting! As soon as my mill arrived I opened it up and read the book. Then thought ,uh oh.

I live over an hour away from a Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods Market, we have one, yes ONE local health food store with 2 small locations. So my resources are very limited. So my challenge is even bigger. Thankfully you can get ANYthing online.

Once I was able to purchase some grain, hard red wheat, as this was all they had. Then on to using the mill. I did finally get some white wheat, rye, millet and chickpeas later.

You see a mill is what turns the wheat berries into flour. I apologize if you knew this but it was all new to me a few years ago until I met someone who milled their own flour. I have been wanting a mill since then. NOW I have one 🙂 If you bake bread, you know you go through flour like water and organic flour is expensive. Mills are expensive as well. This one from GrainMillWagon is affordable.

This week I used the mill for the first time, the flour smells wonderful, it took just 2 minutes and feels softer than any body powder I’ve ever bought.

I made an egg bread. We raise chickens, so eggs are in abundance. Fresh and organic, can’t beat that now can you?

Here is what I did:

First, mill the wheat. Follow the instructions in the booklet. Store it well or only mill what you need. It only takes a few minutes so it is easy to have ‘fresh’ flour in minutes.

Next gather your ingredients and bake the bread. Lastly ENJOY

Grain Mill Challenge Experience: Recently I was chosen to be part of a challenge. I had the awesome opportunity to try out the WonderMill grain mill and blog my experiences. I am in love with this mill. It is super easy to use and having my own fresh milled flour is such a benefit for a food blogger like myself. My goal this year has been to be healthier. Using a mill helps me meet this goal. I don't have to worry or wonder about what is in my flour. Working with Brent and The WonderMill company has been a joy. If you are in the market for a mill, I highly suggest this one and if you are a blogger looking for a great company to work with, contact them and enter the challenges. This has truly been a wonderful experience.
