Print this Recipe    Struan 01

(3 loaves)

7 cups high-gluten bread flour
1/2 cup uncooked polenta (coarse corn meal)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup wheat bran
4 teaspoons sea salt (I use 3)
3 tablespoons dry yeast
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup lukewarm buttermilk
about 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
3 tablespoons poppy seed

In a large bowl mix all dry ingredients, including salt and yeast.
Add cooked brown rice, honey and buttermilk and mix. Add 1 cup of
the water, reserving the other 1/2 cup for adjustments during
kneading. Squeeze ingredients together with your hands to make a
ball. Sprinkle some flour on counter, turn out the ball and begin
kneading. Add small quantities of water as needed. Knead until
stretchy and elastic, about 12-15 minutes.

Clean and dry mixing bowl. Put in dough and cover with damp towel
or plastic wrap and allow to rise in warm place for about 1-1 1/2
hour, or until doubled in size. Form dough into three balls; shape
into loaves and place in greased bread pans, 9 x4 1/2x 3. Brush an
egg wash solution (1 egg white beaten with 2 tablespoons water) on
top of each loaf and sprinkle poppy seeds on top. Cover and let
rise until doubled. Bake in preheated 350 deg. oven for about 45
minutes or until a thwack on bottom of loaf sounds hollow. If bread
comes out of pan dark on top but too light or soft on sides or
bottom, take loaf out of pan, return it to oven, and finish baking
until it is thwackable. Bear in mind that bread will cook much
faster once it is removed from the pan. Allow bread to cool at
least 40 minutes before slicing.

Reviewer: Taz from Harrisburg,PA USA
As a Baker/Chef Am always looking for new or updated ideas on old classics and this is one - Use it for grilled ham and cheese sandwichs - ALSOME - and makes great toast also~ Was given Brother Junipers Bread book - saw this recipe and the ideas started to form - is one of our better sellers with soup when the weather turns "COOL"
