Whole Wheat Bread Recipe 


Add the following to an electric stand mixer or bowl:

1 cup very warm water

2 teaspoons SAF instant yeast

1 teaspoon dough enhancer

1 teaspoon cup oil

1 teaspoon raw honey

2 TBS instant mashed potato flakes, optional

2 TBS 7-grain cracked cereal  mix, optional

2 TBS ground flax seed, optional

1 1/2 cups whole grain flour (I prefer to use a mixture of spelt, khorasan, hard white and hard red wheat. This is a very versatile recipe and can be used with any combination of grains - or just one type of grain.)

1 teaspoon salt (on top of flour)

Mix above ingredients together for a few minutes. It will look like a thick soup.

Add more flour (2/3 - 1 more cups of whole grain or use white bread flour if you want) until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl. Continue kneading/mixing the dough for a few minutes. Don't overmix when using ancient grains. 

Oil or grease hands and counter top or bread board. Dump dough out of mixer. Knead and form into 1 loaf. Cover with no-lint towel and allow to raise  until double in size.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until golden. 

Remove from pan and cool on wire rack. 

NOTE: Dough recipe is super-versatile and can be used for pizza curst, fry bread, rolls, or cinnamon rolls. Make a few loaves of bread and use the rest for something fun!
