All whole wheat bread

29 Jan

This is a great recipe if you’ve got a stand mixer. Otherwise, still a great recipe… but be prepared to knead for a long time!

5-6 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 Tbsp instant yeast
2 Tbsp salt
1 tablespoon vital gluten bread enhancer (optional)
3 cups water
1/3 cup milk powder
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar

Place flour, milk powder, sugar, yeast, salt and bread improver into mixing bowl. Attach flat beater and mix on Speed 2 until well combined.

Change to dough hook. With mixer going, slowly add 1 cup water and oil to the outside of the bowl. If mixture looks dry, add extra water until dough looks just moist. Knead for 5-6 minutes (staying on Speed 2) until dough is soft and elastic.

Place dough into an oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap or a damp tea towel and leave dough to rise and more than double in size. This takes about 1 hour in a draught free, warm place.

Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease two medium sized loaf pans.

Punch dough down, then shape into two loaves. Cover with damp tea towel and place in a warm place for 45 minutes or until they have risen to top of pan.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and hollow sounding when lightly tapped. Turn bread out onto a cooling rack and allow to cool.
