Power Grain Bread
Whole grains and just a touch of molasses are packed into this flavourful bread.
1 cup Highwood Crossing Organic Power Grains Hot Cereal
2 cups boiling water
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons Highwood Crossing Organic Canola Oil
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
1/2 cup warm water
2 tablespoons yeast
4-6 cups Highwood Crossing Organic All-Purpose or Whole Wheat Flour (or a mixture of both)
Combine the Power Grains, boiling water, honey, oil, and salt in a large bowl and let sit for 1 hour. Mix the molasses, warm water, and yeast, cover and let sit for 10 minutes or until frothy. Combine the molasses mixture and the power grains mixture and gradually add 4-6 cups (depending on humidity and age of the flour) of all-purpose flour and whole-wheat flour blend to make a workable mass. Keep kneading for about 8 to 10 minutes total time.
Put dough into a large oiled bowl. Roll dough in the oil to cover the whole surface and cover bowl with lid or cloth. Let dough rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size. Grease or oil two 9x5 inch bread pans and have ready.
Deflate the dough by pressing your fists into the risen dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured counter and divide it into 2 pieces with a knife. Tuck the rough cut side into the dough and shape with your hands into a tight oval shape. Set into greased pans. The loaves now need to proof until double in size. - usually about 1 hour, but it depends on the temperature in the house. Set them on top of the fridge for extra warmth.
Preheat oven to 375ºF about 20 minutes before the loaves are ready to bake. Once they have doubled, bake for about 30-40 minutes or until golden and when tapped on the bottom of the pan, there is a hollow sound.
Makes 2 loaves.
