1 cup Honeyville Whole Grain Rye
3 cups Hot Water
1/3 cup Sugar or Palm Coconut Sugar
1 Tbsp Salt
2 cups Honeyville Hard White Wheat, Milled
3 Tbsp SAF Yeast
4-5 cups Honeyville Alta Artisan Bread Flour
First, sprout your wheat.
To do this, follow the instructions in our Sprouting Grains post, then let them dry out on a paper towel.
Next, using your BOSCH Universal Mixer, add the following ingredients in this order: water, sugar, salt, milled hard white wheat, sprouted rye, and yeast. Turn mixer to #2 setting and, while dough is mixing, slowly add alta artisan flour 1 cup at a time, until dough begins to pull away from sides. Knead in machine for 3-4 minutes.
Remove and place in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise for 40 minutes.
Once dough has doubled in size, punch down, and remove from bowl.
Divide dough in half.
Shape into two loaves and place on your USA Pan Italian Loaf Pan.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Once dough has risen for 30 minutes, slice the tops, spray with water, and bake in oven for 25 minutes. Remove and allow to cool before slicing and serving.
These loafs bake up crispy on the outside but soft, fluffy, and full of flavor on the inside. The sprouted rye gives you a soft crunch, yet delicious taste with each slice and each bite. Serve this up with some raw honey and your mouth with beg you for more!
Sprouting grains is easier than you think, and this is the recipe to prove it!
