DIRECTIONS

  • Grind 8 or 9 cups of wheat in the kitchen mill.
  • (Add about 1/2 cup millet and 1/2 cup flax seed).
  • Put oil, water, dough enhancer and honey into bosch bowl.
  • Jog (or pulse) a few times to mix.
  • Add approximately 6 cups of flour and jog to moisten the flour.
  • Add yeast and salt.
  • If you would like to add whole grains (eg millet or flax) add them at this time instead of grinding it with the flour at the beginning.
  • Start machine gradually adding flour and let it moisten before adding more.
  • You have added enough flour when the dough begins to leave the bottom of the bowl.
  • The sides will clean as it kneads.
  • Knead 7 to 10 minutes.
  • Remove and shape into 4 loaves.
  • (8"x4" greased pans).
  • Cover with tea towel and plastic sheet.
  • Let rise until double in volume, approximately 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F-375°F and bake for 30 minutes.
  • The bread is done when it clearly leaves the sides of the pan and the loaf sounds hollow when you tap the bottom with your finger.
  • Place on a cooling rack.
  • Prep time includes standing time.
  • Note: dough enhancer can usually be purchased where you purchase the wheat or possibly at a health food store.
