Recipe: Wheat Berry Bread (By Machine)

This is another recipe to use the wheat berries you have stored. We've moderated a recipe to make in our bread machine, because, well, we don't eat a lot of bread, and half of it has to be wheat-free anyway.

Give this a try. You may want to play with the ingredients and measurements for your own personal taste, machine, or perhaps baking in your oven or a solar oven.

1 1/2 cup milk
2/3 cup water
2 tablespoons vinegar
1/3 cup oil or melted butter
1/3 cup honey
1 egg
4 cups wheat flour (you need to measure it from what you grind yourself)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon yeast

1-2 cups additional wheat flour (especially if making without bread machine)

Follow the instructions to your machine, placing the ingredients in the bucket according to instructions. Our machine calls for wet ingredients first, then dry, then yeast. Mix the wet together before adding. Mix the dry together before adding. Then, set on longest baking cycle, and start.

After the machine has mixed for a few minutes, take a peak. While it's supposed to be stickier than bread made from store-bought flour, it's still needs to be a firm dough. Add a bit more flour by tablespoons as necessary. This should make a 2-pound loaf.
