Today's Recipe:
perfect time for baking bread


2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour (I grind my own wheat in my wheat mill, but you can get w.w. flour in the grocery store.)
1 1/2 tsp. yeast (I was told that Red Star does not have preservatives in it, so I use that brand).
1 Tbsp. butter (I suppose you could use margarine, but I don't)
2 Tbsp. honey (sometimes I use part molasses)
1 tsp. salt
1 cup + 2 Tbsp. warm water.

Put the ingredients in the bread machine, set it on w.w. and medium brown. My machine takes almost 4 hours. Oh, but it is worth the wait!!!

Buttermilk Seed Bread
Serves: Makes 2 - 9x5 inch loaves (20 servings)

1 .25 ounce package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
3/4 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 tablespoons margarine, melted
3 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons flax seed
2 tablespoons poppy seed
2 tablespoons sunflower seed
2 cups whole wheat flour
4 cups bread flour

In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. Combine buttermilk, butter or margarine, honey and the yeast mixture in a large bowl. Add the salt, all of the seeds and the whole wheat flour. Stir to combine. Add the bread flour, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well with a wooden spoon after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 minutes. Lightly oil a large mixing bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with the oil. Cover with a damp cloth and put in a warm place to rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees F). Grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans. Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into two equal pieces and form into loaves. Place the loaves into the prepared pans. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 30 minutes or until tops are brown and the bottom of a loaf sounds hollow.

Bread Machine Irish Soda Bread
Some tips before you make your soda bread: Sift the dry ingredients together several times to ensure that the soda is well distributed. Do not over handle the dough. Shape the dough into a domed circle, then slice an X into the top to help the bread "flower" properly.

2 cups bread flour
1-cup whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup powdered buttermilk
2 T cornmeal
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2-teaspoon baking soda
1-cup water
1 large egg
2 T molasses
1 T honey
1 3/4 tsp bread machine yeast
3/4-cup currants
1 T caraway seeds
2 T butter

Combine flours, buttermilk, cornmeal, salt, baking soda, water, egg, molasses, honey, butter, and yeast in the bread machine and process on the dough setting. Add the currants and caraway seeds just before the final kneading. Remove from the machine, punch down, and cover with the bread machine "pan." Let dough rest for 15 minutes. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Punch the dough down, and form it into an 8-inch circle, slightly flattened. Place the dough on the parchment paper, cover with plastic wrap, and let it rise until nearly doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 375F degrees. Remove the plastic wrap and cut a large X into the top of the dough with a sharp knife. Bake for 15 minutes on the middle oven rack, then reduce the oven temperature to 350F degrees and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until brown and done through. Serve warm.
