My friend, Breezy, had me over one day to learn how to make her scrumptious bread. I have to share it with you! First, though, you need to know that my old wheat grinder just couldn't grind the wheat fine enough. It was worth it to me to invest in a new NutriMill - and I'm so glad I did! It ground the wheat into the finest flour I've ever seen! And it made amazing bread - one would never guess it to be freshly ground whole wheat! So, here's the recipe & instructions:
BREEZY'S BREAD (makes 4 loaves)
put in kitchen aid in the following order:
2/3 cup oil
2/3 cup honey
most important: perfectly warm water ... very warm - put your wrist under it and be able to leave it there for 10 seconds
Add to oil and honey:
5 cups warm water
3 HEAPING TBLSP yeast
barely mix it
let rise for 20 minutes so it looks something like this:
Grind wheat. I use about 8 cups whole white wheat to equal 12 cups flour.
12 Cups freshly ground whole WHITE wheat
Add 4 cups flour, mix. Add 5 more c flour, then 2 Tbls salt
add more flour to equal about 12 cups - just enough so it pulls away, but is still sticky
knead at low speed for 12 minutes
turn on oven light to heat up the oven a little or heat oven to 170 then turn it off
spray pam on the bread pans
pour oil on the counter, coat hands in oil and knead dough with hands into a giant loaf.
Divide into 4 equal loaves, then shape each loaf and put in prepared pan.
Place all 4 pans on middle shelf. Let rise in oven 30minutes or until dough is risen to desired height. Leave bread in oven and turn to 350 for 24-30 minutes.
When it comes out of the oven, let it sit on the counter in the pan for 5 minutes. Dump out of pans and let cool till it's cool to the touch, but slightly warm so there gets a little moisture in the bag you put it in to store it. This freezes well.
