Last week I ran out of time to make a few loaves, so I ran to the store and bought a loaf of "Dave's Killer Bread"
...it was amazing.
It was hearty and sweet and rad.
I was determined to copycat it's recipe.
The ingredients had some pretty crazy things. More sweetener than I usually use, quinoa (wtf) and lots and lots of oats.
I made it.
It was delicious.
Here's the recipe:
2¼ c of warm water
2 tbls of yeast
2 tbls of coconut oil
2 tbls of honey
2 tbls of molasses
1 tbls of sea salt
¼ c of flax seed
¼ c of cracked wheat
¼ c of red oats (or any other thick cut oat you have)
¼ c of sunflower seeds
¼ c of quinoa
4 c of whole wheat flower (approx)
In your kitchen aid or mixer, add your warm water. Sprinkle the yeast on top and let sit for a few minutes. Add your honey, salt, molasses, coconut oil and give it a quick mix.
Add the rest of your dry ingredients, minus the flour and mix again, just to wet the ingredients.
Slowly add your flour. Just until the dough pulls away from your bowl.
Throw it on a floured counter and give it a good knead. Just until the dough stops absorbing the flour.
Wash your dough bowl out. Dry it off and coat it with some oil. Place your dough in the bowl, cover with a warm damp towel and let rise until double in size.
Punch down, knead it out again, place back in bowl. Let it rise double in size, punch down, knead it out and cut the dough in half.
Take out two loaf pans, spray with oil.
Knead out your two dough balls, create your loaves and place in pans. Cover the tops with a light oil ( I used olive oil). Cover with a damp warm towel and let rise until you have nice round crowns on both.
Heat your oven to 425.
Remove towel, throw your bread in the oven and cook for approx. 30 minutes.
To make sure your bread is cooked thoroughly, flip your loaf out onto a hot pad and flick the bottom. If it sounds hollow, your bread is done!
