Yeast Breads


 

Maple Rye Bread

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1/3 cup light molasses
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp shortening
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1 package yeast
  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 1 cup un-sifted rye flour
  • 5-6 cups un-sifted all-purpose flour
Directions: Mix first five ingredients until shortening is melted and well-blended, cool. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add to syrup mixture. Add rye flour and 2 cups flour; beat 4-5 minutes. Add enough flour to make a dough stiff enough to handle. Use remaining flour to cover pastry cloth or board. Knead until dough is smooth and springs back slightly, about 7 to 10 minutes. Dough will be slightly sticky. Place dough in a greased bowl, turn to grease top. Cover with a damp towel; let rise until double (2 hours). Punch down and knead lightly on a floured surface. Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Form each into a ball and place in a greased 8″ or 9″ round cake pan. Cover with a damp towel and let rise about 1 hour. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes.


 

Maple Pecan Whole-Wheat Bread

Ingredients:
  • ½ cup pecans
  • ½ oz or 2 packages dry yeast
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1¾ cups finely ground whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp corn oil

Directions: Roast the pecans first at 375° for 10-15 min. Set aside to cool. Then grind the pecans in food processor. Be careful not to over process them, or you will end up with pecan butter. Dissolve the yeast and 2 Tbsp of maple syrup in the water. Set aside until the yeast begins to foam (about 5 min.). Combine the two flours, salt, and pecan meal in a large bowl. Add the yeast mixture and the remaining 6 Tbsp of maple syrup to the dry ingredients. Mix to form a medium-stiff dough, and continue mixing (or kneading) for 4-5 min. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface, form into a loaf, and place it in a lightly oiled loaf pan. Brush the top of the bread with a little oil, and put the pan in a warm place for the dough to rise. (The risen dough should hold a dent when gently touched.) Bake in a preheated oven at 375° for about 40 minutes. Immediately on removing the bread from the oven, lightly brush a little unrefined corn oil on the top crust.

  • 6 cups unbleached white flour

  • 2 tsp salt
Directions: Dissolve yeast and sugar in the warm water in a large bowl or a food processor. Let proof (become bubbly). Mix in 3 cups of the flour. In a small saucepan, scald skim milk. Remove from heat. Add butter, maple syrup, and salt to milk and mix until butter melts. When liquid has cooled to lukewarm, add to flour in bowl. Stir in more flour, ½ cup at a time, until dough is fairly stiff. Knead dough 10 min. or process 15 seconds or until dough is smooth and elastic. Place dough in a large oiled bowl, cover with a towel, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled. Remove dough from bowl and divide it in half. Let dough rest, covered, for 10 minutes. Roll into two loaves and place in loaf pans greased with butter. Cover and let rise until doubled (1 -2 hours). Preheat oven to 350°. Bake loaves for 35-40 min. or until golden brown.
