More bread! I made these Memorial Day weekend, and they were sooo good. I had mine with some barbecue jackfruit, but we also ate a bunch plain. Mom said they may have been one of the best breads I’ve baked, and she’s a bread fanatic. I also left some for Alexia and Amanda while social distancing. Alexia roasted hers on the fire and they both asked for the recipe. They have a great, fairly sweet flavor, and are really soft and fluffy. Great for burgers, sandwiches, or to serve with a holiday dinner.
3/4 c warm water
2 1/4 tsp yeast
1/4 c sugar
360 g AP flour
60 g whole wheat flour
1 1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp flax+ 3 tbsp water
Combine water, yeast, and 1 tsp sugar in a small bowl until foamy and coming together in the middle of the bowl. In the bowl of your stand mixer/ large bowl, whisk flours and salt together. With the dough attachment (or kneading by hand), mix in coconut oil, flax mixture, and yeast mixture and let mix for 5-7 mins. The dough should form a smooth ballish clump by the end. Use a flat surface to shape into a ball by kneading a few times. Let sit covered in a greased, large bowl in your oven with the light on for an hour. Divide dough into 8-10 sections (I reccomend making them more like squares than rectangles) and knead each into a flattened ball shape. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, cover, and place back in the oven with the light on for an hour. Remove from the oven, then preheat the it to 425*. Bake for about 13 minutes. Great out of the oven, and cooled.
*For a thicker, crunchier outside, preheat oven to 375 and bake for about 13 minutes, then increase to 425 and bake for about 5 more minutes, or until brown
Tips/ Things I’d Change:
- I might brush some almond milk on top before baking to make them shine and sprinkle with poppy seeds for an extra crunch
- Everything bagel seasoning top would be a good addition if I was using them as sandwich bread
- Make sure the final flat balls are smooth all around, or else they will have creases when you bake them.
*Okay, I just realized I may have baked these at 420, I will try recipe again and fill you in. If they don’t look browned, bake for 15-18 mins.
