This recipe is my favorite bread!!! It is healthy and so yummy! It's a cinch to make and turns out every time!
I originally planned on a little tutorial w/ photos of the whole process, but I was just too tired today. It's pretty self explanatory but if you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them.
4 1/2 c. water
2 1/2 Tbs. yeast
1 tsp. honey
1 1/2 Tbs. salt
3/4 c. butter, melted
1 c. honey
11-12 c. wheat flour (I usually substitute 1-2 c. of white flour if I have it on hand to make it fluffy)
2 1/2 c. rolled oats
1/3 c. raw millet, optional (but this makes the bread! it's worth the extra effort to go to the natural foods store and pick some up, promise!!!)
3 Tbs vital wheat gluten
Combine yeast, 1 tsp. honey and 1/2 c. of the total water required. Let sit for 5 min. Combine yeast mixture w/ remaining 4 c. of water and all the rest of the ingredients. Only add as much flour until it isn't too sticky. Knead for 10 minutes. Move to greased bowl and cover w/ a towel. Let rest till doubled, about 1 1/2 hours. Punch down and divide into 4 loaves. Roll out w/ rolling pin into rectangle and roll up into a loaf. Place in greased bread pans and let rise till doubled, about 30-45 minutes (I put mine in the oven w/ the light on). Heat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 30-45 minutes. Bread is done when browned on all sides. Remove and let rest in pans 10 minutes b/f removing to cool. Then I dare you not to down an entire loaf! :)
