Protein Bread

Monday, May 07, 2012

Okay, I am trying my hand at a high protein bread this week. Any suggestions?

I have been baking my own bread daily for years now and we really enjoy having it available every morning for breakfast and lunch boxes. At the gym the other day, the ladies were talking about high protein bread and how expensive it is at the local bakery. We were wondering how hard it would be to come up with our own recipe and bake it ourselves. So, here goes. I have searched the net and marked several recipes that look interesting. I don't want to have to run to the health food store for ingredients, so I am looking for a recipe that contains ingredients that I can pick up at any grocery store.

Have any of you had any luck at doing this? There seems to be a lot of quick bread recipes out there, but yeast breads are a bit harder to come by. I would appreciate any suggestion you might have. Lets see what we can come up with.

  When you say you bake your own bread, is it totally by hand or do you use a bread machine? I am considering starting to bake my own (to have access to healthier bread) but don't have any idea where to start.

    Whenever I have a baking question I check out the King Arthur website. I order my specialty flours from them. Here is a link to the discussion about protein bread.

I seem to remember the Cornell Bread recipe and not sure if I read about it or actually baked it a long time ago.
Oh I remember I read about that in my Joy of Cooking Cook book back when I got married in 1972..I
am on my 3rd copy of that book!!

The Cornell Triple-Rich Flour Formula
In each cup of measured flour first add into the bottom of the cup:
1 tablespoon soy flour
1 tablespoon dry milk solids
1 teaspoon wheat germ.

It can be used in bread, cookies, muffin or cake recipes.
I used to do this back then when I was a hippy..now I am just hippy!

Also I seem to remember buying triticale flour for making bread but don't have a recipe on hand.

Let us know how this turns out!

    I have heard of this recently. I too wondered what they did to add protein. I see it at my local bakery, so maybe I will buy a loaf and try to figure it out, while asking some questions about it.
I would guess the whey powder is a good start. Of course eggs would increase the protein as well.
I will look forward to what you find out, and will share with you what I find out, if I do. I just baked bread today, so it won't be this week that I would buy some to try.
