DIRECTIONS

  • Place sugar and yeast in bowl with 1/2 the warmed water. Stir and let sit 5-10 minutes until foamy.
  • In bowl of stand mixer add: remaining water, gluten, egg yolks, honey, olive oil, buttermilk, 2 cups of the flour, 7 grain cereal, and proofed yeast.
  • Stir into batter, cover with towel, and let sit 30 minutes (will rise some).
  • Place bowl onto stand mixer, add salt, and remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time -- mixing with paddle attachment until dough pulls away from sides and forms ball around the paddle.
  • Scrape dough off paddle and replace with dough hook. Set on 2 and knead with dough hook x8 minutes. Cover with towel and allow to rise until doubled.
  • Remove dough and divide in half. Form each half into a loaf and place into greased standard size loaf pan - push dough into corners and sides to form to pan. Spritz with pan spray (preferably olive or canola), cover with towel and let rise until 1 - 2 inches above top of pan.
  • Place into pre-heated 350* oven and bake x30 minutes.
  • Remove from pans, brush lightly with butter using paper towel to remove excess so dough does not get soggy, and place on cooling rack to cool.
  • Cool at least 20-30 minutes before cutting (if you cut while really hot the crumb does not have time to set and will feel very heavy and sticky).
