Whole Wheat and Oatmeal Bread



Molasses Wheat Bread

  • 1 1/2 c. warm water
  • 1 packet yeast
  • 1/4 c + 1 T molasses
  • 2 1/2 c white flour (I used weizenmehl type 405)
  • ~30 g butter, melted
  • 1 c + 1 c wheat flour

In a large bowl, combine warm water, yeast, 1/4 c molasses, and white flour. Mix well, and set aside in a warm place for 1/2 hour, until bubbly.

Add butter, salt, 1 T molasses, and 1 c wheat flour, and stir in well. Turn onto floured surface and knead in around 1 c more wheat flour, until dough is not sticky. Oil a large bowl and place dough into bowl, turning to oil all surfaces. Put someplace warm and let rise until doubled, about an hour.

Turn onto floured surface again and punch down. With your hands, spread/press it into a triangle, and then fold in thirds. Place, fold-side down, in oiled loaf pan, and leave to rise again until at least doubled.

Bake at 180C for ~30-35 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool on a rack.
