Title: Cracked wheat bread
Yield: 30 Servings
1/2 c Warm water
3 tb Molasses
1/2 c Yeast (really!)
1 c Water
1/2 c Honey
1 c Milk or buttermilk
3 tb Butter
4 c Whole wheat flour
1 ts Salt
1 c Cracked wheat
Combine warm water and molasses. Add yeast. Stir 100 times to start
yeast action. Mix remaining water, honey, milk and butter; heat to
body temperature. Add to yeast mix and let stand 10 minutes. Stir
together flour, salt and cracked wheat and add to yeast mixture. Turn
onto floured work surface and knead until hands are clean, or until
you're perspiring, at least 20 minutes. (We get the whole family to
help.) Place dough in lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a towel and let
rise in warm place for about one hour, until double in size. Punch
down and knead again for 5 minutes. Divide dough and place in oiled
loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until bread makes
a thud sound when thumped with finger. Let cool before slicing.
After you make this you've earned a rest. Serve it with a simple
green salad and cheese. Makes 3 loaves.
