Multi grain Bread

Today I decided to make some bread with mostly wheat flour, and a few other grains. The dough was very easy to work with, to form into loaves.

6 C. Warm water (not hot)
2/3 C Oil (I used olive oil)
1/2 C Xagave or 1 C Honey
3 T Yeast
1 T Salt
2 T Gluten (I replaced this with 1 T White Vinegar)
1 T Cinnamon (Optional)
1/4 C Unsweetened applesauce
1/2 C Flax (Ground)
1 C 6 Grain rolled oats
2 1/2 C Buckwheat Flour
11-12 1/2 C White Wheat flour

1. In bread mixer pour water, yeast, Xagave. Let sit for 10 to 15 min till starts to bubble. If it doesn't bubble your yeast is bad. (It is nice to find that out in the beginning of the process.

2. Then add the rolled oats, so they can soften in the water for 5 min. Then add the remaining ingredients, adding the wheat flour last. Add just enough wheat flour for the dough to pull away from the bowl. Be careful to not let it get too dry. The dough will still be sticky. Knead in the mixer 6-8 min. (You can knead it longer when the spelt is not in it.

3. Let sit in the bowl covered till double.

4. Oil your hands. I used olive oil. and put oil on the counter and in the pans. From into loaves let rise till double.

5. Put into preheated oven at 400. Put the bread in turn down to 325. Bake for 25-30 min. If have a thermometer, stick it in the bread in the center. It should read 180 when it is done. I rubbed butter on the top. It has a really nice texture. I really liked it.

*I made a (1) 1/2 lb loaf, (2) 2lb loaves, (1) 2 1/2 lb loaf and (5) rolls. :) Plenty to share.
