My New Bread Recipe - whole grain
I frequently try different approaches to bread making. Here is a recipe I came up with a couple months ago. I've made it 3 times now and really like it.
NEW BREAD ~ 5 loaves
1 Tablespoon dry yeast
6 1/4 cups very warm water (about 110F)
1 large potato (cooked in the microwave and then put through the ricer and cooled)
2 Tablespoons RealSalt
2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup flax seed, ground
3 cups quick oats
Whole wheat flour
All-purpose flour for kneading
1 egg mixed with 1/2 shell of water
unhulled sesame seeds
Put the yeast in a large bowl.
Pour in the water
Add the potato, salt, nutritional yeast, eggs, oil, honey, flax seed and oats. Stir well.
Add whole wheat flour until it is enough to make a nice kneadable dough.
Turn onto bread board floured with all-purpose flour.
Knead for 10 minutes, sprinkling more white flour under dough sparingly when it gets sticky.
Return dough to bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap.
Put bowl in warm (80F) place and let dough rise until double.
Let rise until double again.
Divide into 5 equal portions and form into loaves.
Put loaves in sprayed medium sized bread pans.
Pre-heat oven to 350F and set the pans on top of the oven while it is heating.
When dough has doubled and is nicely springy, brush with egg and water mixture and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.
I am sharing this recipe at "Simple Lives Thursdays" over at GNOWFGLINS and at Traditional Tuesday!
