Not an authentic Native American recipe but the name given by "Bread Machine Magic." I avoided making this loaf for a long time because I don't typically have the ingredients but this is a very good, sturdy loaf. This recipe makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf.
- 7⁄8 cup buttermilk (or 3 tablespoons dry buttermilk powder and 7/8 cups water)
- 1 egg
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons butter or 1 1⁄2 tablespoons margarine
- 3 tablespoons molasses
- 1⁄3 cup cornmeal
- 1 2⁄3 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup bread flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄3 cup unsalted sunflower seeds, raw
- 3 teaspoons active dry yeast
- Place all ingredients in bread pan, select Light Crust setting and press Start.
- After the baking cycle ends, remove bread from pan, place on cake rack and allow to cool 1 your before slicing.
I had made this bread a long time ago and had misplaced the recipe so I am delighted to find it here. I never have the sunflower seeds so leave them out and it is still wonderful. I love it with a bowl of chili.
I made this hearty loaf in my Kitchen Aid mixer and it was great! I shaped the loaves into rounds and decorated the tops with leaves and vines made from the same dough. Really made it hit at a family gathering we had recently. I use the rapid mix method and find that most loaves are lighter if I let them rise in my oven with just the light on. NO heat. The trick to nice light bread is not to hurry! This is excellent bread. Thanks!
I made this in the bread machine using the dough cycle and then baked in the oven in small rustic shaped loaves. I found the texture a bit dense, but the flavor was great. It sliced nicely. Thank you for sharing your recipe! Reviewed for Pick A Chef 2007.
