100% Wheat Bread
Great Bread Machine Recipes Copyright 1992
2 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast
2 tablespoons honey
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 ½ teaspoons salt
¼ cup wheat gluten
1 cup warm water
Prepare per your bread machine instruction manual. Makes 1-1lb loaf.
I was curious how adding wheat gluten to a bread recipe would affect the result. This definitely had a chewier texture than other whole wheat breads I've made so I definitely think it made an improvement.
A better blogger would have done a side-by-side comparison but what can I say, you don't pay me enough. No one pays me at all LOL so I only made the one loaf of bread that I needed.
This is my contribution to Sweetnick's ARF/5-A-Day Tuesdays which isn't just about fruits and veggies anymore, it's about any healthy eating and this bread is healthy.
Blast From The Past: Whole Wheat Bread from May 2006. I thought that bread was crumbly and it was a very similar recipe without using the gluten.
Question of the Day: If you bake bread, have you ever added gluten or other additives (like a dough enhancer)?
