Frozen Bread Dough
Low Calorie Recipe
This recipe will make three loaves of bread dough with reduced calories and fat that you can keep in your freezer until ready to bake.
2-1/2 cups unbleached flour
2 packages dry yeast
2 cups skim milk
3 tablespoons reduced fat margarine, melted
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 whole eggs
5-1/2 cups unbleached flour
In a mixing bowl, combine 2-1/2 cups flour and yeast. In a saucepan, heat milk, margarine, sugar, and salt just until warm, 115 to 120 degrees, stirring constantly until margarine almost melts. Add liquid to dry ingredients in mixing bowl along with eggs. Beat at low speed for 1/2 minute, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Beat 3 minutes at high speed. Stir in remaining flour as you can mix in with a spoon.
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough flour to make a stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes total). Divide dough into thirds. Shape each of 2 portions into loaves. Store in freezer container with a double thickness of waxed paper between. Divide remaining dough into 16 balls. Arrange balls one inch apart in a freezer container.
If you wish to cut some of the sugar, you can use a granulated sugar substitute, such as Stevia, in place of the sugar.
