1 cup quick oatmeal 1 teaspoon salt 4 tablespoons melted butter 1/2 cup warm water 1 cup whole wheat flour 1/2 cup wheat germ 2 3/4 cups cold water 1/2 cup molasses 2 packages yeast 1/4 cup honey 1 cup rye flour 1/3 cup bran flakes 4 cups flour (more as needed) 1 cup chopped nuts your choice
Combine oatmeal and 2 cups cold water; bring to boil in saucepan. Cool. Place in electric mixer bowl; add molasses, salt and butter; blend and cool to lukewarm.
Blend yeast with warm water, honey and stir. Let stand until foamy. Add the yeast mixture and 3/4 cup cold water; beat smooth. Add flours (except bread flour) and nuts and seeds and mix well. Add bread flour as needed to make a workable soft dough.
Turn out on floured board; knead for 10 minutes. Place dough in lightly greased bowl; cover with damp cloth. Let rise until double. Punch down. Divide in half. Place in buttered bread pan. Cover; let rise.
Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Makes 2 loaves
If you are going to start making bread , maybe invest a few dollars and buy another loaf pan.
I have been buying multi-grain and whole wheat nut bread... It's about $4 per loaf.
I want to make my own. I cannot find any recipes. I can find *partcial* recipes, but nothing that comes close to what I actually want.
~ I do not have a bread machine. ~ I do have a Kitchenaid *fancy* stand mixer w/ hook attachment. ~ I have *one* "regular" bread loaf pan, but I can reuse it ~ I have 3 or 4 mini-loaf pans. ~ I also have a crock pot...
I truly just want to try my hand at homemade bread that I have made from scratch.
I need recipes that arent going to make sweet wheat bread. I want lots of oats, wheat, nuts, etc etc... but the nuts have to be tiny, because hubby has no teeth for huge pieces.
I like the 9-grain; 12-grain ... etc breads too. I just cannot find any true recipes that stick to the real way to make bread... Anyone that can help, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
