Dark Mother Bread

This is a delicious honey wheat bread that tastes excellent topped with apple butter or dipped in soup.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/2 Tbsp. active dry yeast
  • 1/8 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Ad
  • 1/8 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, softened.
  • 2 cups all-purpose baking flour

Directions:

Dissolve yeast in water and add honey. Mix well.

Stir in whole wheat flour, salt, vegetable oil, and butter. Mix until a stiff dough has formed. Gradually work the all-purpose flour into the mix, 1/2 cup at a time.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead for 15 minutes or until dough is elastic.

Shape into a ball and place into an oiled bowl on top of the oven with a warm damp washcloth on top. Allow the dough to rise rise until it has doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

Place dough in greased 9x4 inch loaf pan. Punch down so fitted to bowl. Place back on top of the oven and place warm moist cloth over it. Allow to rise 1-2 inches above edge of pan, about an hour and a half.

Bake at 375 degrees F 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool in pan at least 15 minutes. Brush top with melted butter if desired.

I will try this recipe just because it sounds so good and healthy. I make homemade applesauce that is dark and rich with spices that will go very well with your bread.

Thanks for sharing.
