My friend Jules gave me this recipie a few years ago and I must say it's a keeper! The goal is light, soft and delicious bread that resembles professionally baked bread.
6 C HOT water (as hot as you can get it out of the tap)
2/3 C oil
2/3 C Honey
2 tsp liquid lecithin
8~9 C freshly ground whole wheat flour (hard white spring wheat with high protein count)
1/2 C powdered milk
3 Tbsp SAF instant yeast
3 Tbsp vital wheat gluten
2 Tbsp dough enhancer
2 Tbsp ground flaxseed meal
Combine in Bosch mixer, pulse until blended. Set timer for 10 min and turn on mixer. Within two minutes add:
2 Tbsp Real Salt
8~9 C freshly ground whole wheat flour (until dough just starts to pull away from the sides)
Allow mixer to knead dough for remaining 8 min.
Turn out onto greased counter. divide into 4-6 loaves. Let rise uncovered ~1 1/2 hrs. Place into cold oven. set to 350 for 35 min. When baked, immediately remove from pans and let cool.
