Today's diabetic recipe is a multi-grain bread. Very healthy ingredients. One thing I have discovered is that you can take a bread recipe and make dinner rolls out of it, just bake them for 20 to 25 minutes instead of the length of time called for in the bread recipe. Well, enjoy the bread. Until tomorrow.
*Multi-Grain Bread* (Diabetic Recipe)
Makes 1 Loaf
1¼ Cups all-purpose flour
½ Cup Multi-Grain Oat Meal Cereal
1 Tbls. Active Dry Yeast
2/3 Cup Water
½ Cup Applesauce
2 Tbls. Molasses, or honey
½ Tsp. Salt
1 Lg. Egg
1¾ Cups Whole Wheat Flour
½ Cup Sunflower Seeds
In a bowl, mix together ¾ cup flour, cereal, and yeast; Set aside. In a saucepan mix water, applesauce, honey, and salt; heat until 120°F. to 130°F. Add wet mixture and the egg to dry mixture. Using an electric mixer, beat on low speed for about 30 seconds, scraping the sides of bowl frequently. Continue beating at high speed for about 3 minutes. Stir in the whole wheat flour and sunflower seeds. Gradually add as much of the remaining flour as you can. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Kneed in enough of the remaining flour until dough is smooth and elastic (8 to 10 minutes). Shape into a ball. Lightly grease a large bowl and place the dough in it, turning once to grease the top of dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size ( 1 to 1½ hours). Punch the dough down.Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; cover and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Lightly grease or coat with cooking spray, an 8x4 inch bread pan. Mold dough into a loaf and place into bread pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size, about 30 to 45 minutes. Preheat oven at 375°F. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the bread sounds hollow when tapped on. If bread browns to quickly, cover loosely with foil at the last 10 minutes of baking. Remove bread from pan immediately and cool on a wire rack.
