Soaked Whole Grain Bread

March 4, 2010 at 8:19 pm 1 comment

This was an amazing, easy recipe that husband, daughter, grandson, kids’ ministry team, and I all enjoyed!  I made it for my team leaders meeting, and along with the vegetable beef soup (made with my homemade beef stock), it was a well received lunch.

To make the bread start the night before you’ll bake it.  Combine 3 cups flour (I used whole wheat and kamut) with 1 cup warm water and 2 Tbsp raw apple cider vinegar.  Mix well with a wooden spoon, then cover the bowl tightly.

The next day:  proof yeast using about 2 ounces warm water, a little honey, and 2 tsp yeast; let sit until it bubbles up; add to soaked mixture.

Then add:  2 Tbsp melted coconut oil, 1-2 Tbsp honey, 1 tsp salt.

Mix thoroughly; knead til smooth.  Let rise in an oiled bowl til doubled.  Punch down and shape into a loaf (I made rolls instead); let rise again til doubled.  Then bake at 350F for about 30 minutes (even the rolls seemed to need that much time).  Success–they were light, tender, great tasting!  Now I’ll try a loaf of bread.
