Whole Wheat Bread- 6 Loaves in the Bosch
Whole Wheat Bread
6 cups warm water
3/4-1 cup honey
3/4 – 1 cup olive oil or coconut oil
3 tbsp yeast
2 tbsp salt
1 cup vital wheat gluten (azure or vons or lassens)
15-17 cups whole wheat flour (freshly ground hard red wheat or a mixture is fine too)
put all ingredients in a Bosch mixer (or another mixer or make it by hand)- add flour if too sticky- should just barely not stick to your fingers. knead 5-6 minutes in mixer. (8-10 by hand) take out divide into 6 sections = 6 loaves of bread or sometimes I make rolls or cinnamon rolls or cinnamon bread with one section. Form each section into a loaf- I roll out and then roll up into a loaf. place in greased pans. let rise for 20-25 min until just over top of pan under a dish towel. bake at 350 for about 30 min until brown on top.
This bread is easy, quick, and amazingly delicious. It can be stored on the counter for up to five days, in the fridge for a couple weeks, or frozen and defrosted for later use. Of course, fresh out of the oven is best!
Making your own bread is so affordable too. And grinding your own flour makes bread even cheaper, and the grain can be stored much longer than ground wheat.
