Whole-Wheat Bread for Stuffing

Rapid-rise yeast will cut the rising times in half. Regular yeast gives breads a more complex texture as the bread dough has more time to rise. This bread is perfect for use in stuffing or making croutons. Keep cubes frozen and simply fry bread in melted butter when needed. Save crusts in a container in the freezer for use in stuffing or crumble to form breadcrumbs.

    1 ⅓ cups water, warmed to 110
    cup fat-free milk powder
    2 teaspoons active dry yeast
    2 tablespoons canola oil
    1 teaspoons salt
    1 tablespoon granulated sugar
    1 cup bread flour
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup whole-wheat flour

1.  Bread machine method: Measure the water, milk powder,
     yeast, oil, salt, sugar, bread flour, all-purpose flour and 
     whole wheat flour into bread machine pan. Program for 
     whole-wheat bread, medium crust and large loaf. Go to 
     step 7 when baked.

2.  Hand method: In an extra large bowl, mix the water, milk
     powder, yeast, oil, salt and sugar. Stir in bread flour, all-
     purpose flour and enough whole wheat flour to make
     a soft dough.

3.  Set on a well-floured board. Knead 3 minutes, set in an
     oiled bowl, turn once to coat top with oil.

4.  Turn the oven on to 200
, when you can feel the heat on your
     hand, turn the oven off. Cover the dough with a damp cloth
     and place bowl in warm oven. Leave to rise until double.

5.  Punch dough down, knead 30 seconds.

6.  Place in a greased and floured bread pan. Bake in preheated      
oven 25 to 30 minutes.

7.  When the loaf has cooled, cut off the crust and slice bread
     into -inch cubes. Freeze bread cubes until needed.

     Hint: Bread cubes may also be fried in butter to make great
     fresh croutons.

     To make a great loaf of white bread that reminds me of the
     bread I ate as a child. I use SAF-instant yeast. This makes a
     great chewy loaf which stands up to slicing nicely. Place the
     following in a bread machine pan and set on white, medium
     crust and large loaf cycle: 1 cup lukewarm water, ⅓ cup soy
     milk, 3 tablespoons melted butter, 3 cups King Arthur
     unbleached all-purpose flour, 3 tablespoons honey,
     1 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoons active dry yeast. Start
     the bread machine.

     Makes 1 loaf
