Multi-Grain Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Posted on

I love to make whole wheat bread.  I’m a ‘grind the wheat to make her bread’ kind of gal.

As I was making it today though, I thought I’d add a few more ingredients, to make it more of a multi-grain whole wheat bread, & I substituted coconut oil for the olive oil.  I was surprised at how much lighter & softer this came out, & my family might have even loved it a bit more than my standard recipe.  

  This recipe takes 2 hours from start to finish, with 30 active minutes 

5 ½ cups warm water

2 1/4 T. dry yeast

2 T. salt

1 cup oil (olive or coconut)

2/3 cup honey

8 cups whole kernel wheat

3 Tablespoons chia

2 Tablespoons flax seed

3/4 cup oats

Combine 5 ½ cups warm water, yeast, salt, oil, & honey in Bosch or large mixer bowl. Let stand 5 -10 minutes to activate yeast.

While yeast proofs, using a wheat grinder, mill 8 cups whole kernel wheat to yield 12 cups of whole-wheat flour.  (The wheat will be warm, & perfect for the yeast if ground at this point).

Add 8 cups of whole-wheat flour to mixing bowl. If using a Bosch, use the ‘spring-loaded’ position (turning to the left instead of the right) button the switch first to blend the ingredients, or mix on low speed until well blended.

Add 3 – 4 cups more flour, 1 cup at a time until the dough begins to pull away from the side of the bowl. (The amount of flour required will vary according to the moisture & protein content of the wheat & your atmosphere/altitude etc. The stickier the dough, the moister the bread, but it should clean the sides of the mixing bowl).   Knead dough on low speed for 10 minutes.

Add flax seeds, chia seeds, & oatmeal, & mix thoroughly.

Oil hands & working surface. Remove dough from mixing bowl & with oiled hands, spread into a large rectangle.  Divide into 6 equal portions.  Starting at one end, begin rolling each section, one at a time, into an oblong shape.  Pinch the ends together & turn underneath.  Place in oiled, metal 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 5/8″ bread pans (this size seems to work the best, & metal works better than glass).  If desired, oil the top of the loaves for a soft crust.  Cover with a damp cloth, away from drafts, & let rise 1/3 in bulk, or approx. 35 minutes.

Bake at 425* for 8 minutes, then reduce panggangan temperature to 350* for the remainder of the baking period (27 to 32 minutes). Remove from pans when done, & allow to cool on baking racks. Brush tops with butter or oil immediately.

*Notes:  I specifically use a Bosch mixer with this recipe.  I’ve tried it with a Kitchenaid mixer, without the same results.  My guess is that it relates to the Bosch’s cover retaining the heat perhaps?

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
