Bread in an Hour


O my! O my! O my goodness! This was absolutely delicious bread! My wonderful sister posted this recipe on her blog, where my Grandmother saw the recipe and made the bread for my cousin, Katie, who so graciously gave me a few slices this evening and I devoured them! (It was so good that after we closed the door behind Katie, Cody had to protect the last piece of bread from me so that he could have a nibble! We might have ended up wrestling over it...yes, it is that good!) Thank you to the 3 women above for passing it along! (I had to borrow the picture above...it looks and tastes even better than that one!)

From: Amanda

Makes 2 (8x4 inch) loaves

3 c. whole wheat flour
1/3 c. gluten flour, sifted (or vital wheat gluten)
1 1/4 T. instant yeast (or quick-rising)
2 1/2 c. very warm tap water
1 T. salt
1/3 c. oil
1/3 c. honey or 1/2 c. sugar
1 1/4 T. bottled lemon juice
2 - 2 1/2 c. whole wheat flour

Mix together first three ingredients in mixer with a dough hook.  Add water all at once and mix for 1 minute; cover and let rest for 10 minutes.  Add salt, oil, honey or sugar and lemon juice and beat for 1 minute.  Add last flour, 1 cup at a time, beating between each cup.  Beat for about 6-10 minutes until dough pulls away from sides of the bowl.  This makes a very soft dough.

Preheat oven for 1 minute to lukewarm and turn off.  Turn dough onto oiled counter top; divide, shape into loaves, place in oiled bread pans.  Let rise in warm oven for 10-15 minutes until dough reaches top of pan.  Do not remove bread from oven; turn oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove from pans and cool on racks.

This is the exact recipe I have, same instructions and everything. Which makes me suspect that this is from "Food in a nutshell" by Leslie Probert and Lisa Harkness. Which ALSO means that it is a food storage recipe! Who knew food storage could be so tasty!

I am going to try this. Sounds like it might be better than my bread machine recipe. Questions: does using a Cuisinart instead of a mixer work? And does it matter what kind of oil - can I use EVOO?

Yummy and just the right amount of time for me. Definitely trying this one!!!!!!!

I'm going to answer my own questions.
Mixing this in a Cuisinart with a dough hook does NOT work - only because this is a recipe for 2 loaves. Doesn't fit in my 11-cup size Cuisinart.
And EVOO works great!

ps - Chels - when I bug you with questions, you can respond on here. I always click the "email me with followup comments" box.

Hey! I have been viewing and using recipes on your blog for a while and LOVE some of the recipes. I am starting a recipe blog of my own and was wondering if I could put some of my faves from your blog on mine. Also, I was wondering if you wouldn't mind me putting a link to your blog on it. Let me know what you think :o)
Thanks,
Jennifer
