Whole Wheat Bread Recipe


MILK AND HONEY WHEAT BREAD

3 cups vegetable stock, warmed
2 tsp active dry yeast
1/2 cup oil or melted butter
1/2 cup honey
1-1/2 cups milk powder (2 cups if instant)
2 tsp salt
7 to 8 cups whole wheat flour



Dissolve the yeast in warm vegetable stock. Add the 1/2 cup oil first and then measure the honey in the same measuring cup, which will slide right out without sticking.

Stir the milk powder, salt and 3 cups of the whole wheat flour together and add this to the liquid. Beat the batter for 150 strokes, then add the remaining whole wheat flour and use enough to make a stiff dough for kneading.

Knead for 5 to 8 minutes, or until smooth and elastic; let rise until doubled in size. Punch down and shape into 3 loaves. Place loaves in oiled pans; let rise again.

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees and bake loaves for 30 minutes.

OLD FASHIONED WHOLE WHEAT BREAD RECIPE

2-1/2 tsp active dry yeast or 2-1/2 tsp instant yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water*
1/2 cup lukewarm milk
1/2 cup orange juice
5 TBS melted butter
1-1/2 tsp salt
3 TBS sugar
1/4 cup nonfat dry milk
3/4 cup instant mashed potato flakes
3-3/4 cups King Arthur Traditional Whole Wheat Flour or King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour

*Use 2 tablespoons less water in summer (or in a humid environment), 2 tablespoons more in winter (or in a dry climate).

Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water with a pinch of sugar. Allow it to rest for 15 minutes, till it becomes puffy. If you're using instant yeast, you can skip this step.

Combine the yeast/water with the remaining ingredients, and mix and knead—by hand, mixer, or bread machine—until you've made a cohesive dough.

If you're using a stand mixer, knead at low speed for about 7 minutes. Note that 100% whole wheat dough will never become smooth and supple like dough made with all-purpose flour; it'll feel more like clay under your hands, and may appear a bit rough.

Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover the bowl, and allow it to rise till it's expanded and looks somewhat puffy, about 60 to 90 minutes.

Note that dough kneaded in a bread machine will rise faster and higher than bread kneaded in a mixer, which in turn will rise faster and higher than one kneaded by hand. So if you're kneading by hand, you may want to let the dough rise longer than 90 minutes.

Lightly grease a 9" x 5" loaf pan. Gently shape the dough into a smooth log, and settle it into the pan, smooth side up.

Tent the pan with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the loaf to rise till it's crowned over the rim of the pan by about 3/4", about 75 minutes. Don't let it rise too high; it'll continue to rise as it bakes. Towards the end of the rising time, PREHEAT the oven to 350 degrees.

Bake the bread for 10 minutes. Lightly tent it with aluminum foil, and bake for an additional 30 to 35 minutes, or until the center registers 190°F on an instant-read thermometer. Remove it from the oven, and turn it out of the pan onto a rack.

Run a stick of butter over the top of the hot loaf, if desired, for a softer crust. Allow the bread to cool completely before slicing.

BEST French Vanilla Cake Recipe

French Vanilla Cake

"I have made this cake 3 times in the past 4 weeks and have been asked to make it again for St. Paddy's day and Easter! I should have it down to a science by then. It is simply delicious and I have received rave reviews! Thanks so much for posting what I consider to be the perfect vanilla cake recipe."  by Michelle


Creamy Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

Ice Cream Recipes

"Being an ice-cream addict I searched the web and tried many recipes. Not wanting those with condensed milk I was able to cut the selection right down. And THEN I found your Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream. Not having an ice-cream maker I had to use the instructions from other recipes and then added a pinch of salt (apparently that helps with the freezing!?) and 1 heaping Tbs of Custard Powder. I also added another egg yolk. And this is absolutely perfect. I never want to go back to bought ice-cream .... in fact I find it very disappointing. So thanks for your recipe - it is an absolute hit!" by Celia on Home Page
