DIRECTIONS

  • Boil water (you'll need 2 cups).
  • In a large bowl, mix cracked wheat, salt, honey and butter.
  • Add 2 cups of boiling water to above ingredients; set aside.
  • Mix yeast and 1/2 C warm water. Let rise.
  • When the yeast has risen and the cracked wheat mixture has cooled to room temperature, then combine the two mixtures (yeast and cracked wheat).
  • Stir in 1 1/2 C white flour and 3-4 C whole wheat flour. NOTE: Dough will be stiff, knead in the last cup by hand.
  • Place in greased bowl, cover and let rise until double (about 90 minutes).
  • Grease cookie sheet and sprinkle with cornmeal; set aside.
  • Mix 1 egg and about 2 t water until smooth; set aside.
  • After the dough has risen, shape into two loaves (I prefer four--do what works for you!), place on greased/cornmeal-ed cookie sheet.
  • Paint with egg wash.
  • Make three slashes on the top of each loaf.
  • Let rise until double in size (about 30 minutes to an hour).
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 - 35 minutes until golden.
