Real Whole Wheat Bread / makes 1 loaf
adapted from The Food Matters Cookbook
3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon instant yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
Combine flour, yeast, and salt in a large bowl. Add 1 1/2 cups water and stir until blended; the dough will be pretty wet. Cover and let rise in a warm spot for 12-24 hours. The dough is ready when the surface is dotted with bubbles. *Note, the warmer your house the faster the rise time will be.
Lightly oil the inside of a 9×5-inch loaf pan. Pour the dough into the pan and gently settle it all in with a rubber spatula. Drizzle or brush the extra oil over the top and let the dough rise again, covered, for 1-2 hours in a warm spot. When dough is ready, pre-heat oven to 350F.
Bake until the bread is golden brown and is hollow-sounding when tapped, about 45 minutes. Immediately turn the loaf out of the pan onto a wire rack and let cool before slicing.
I have made the whole wheat bread, and it is awesomely delicious. You feel like a professional chef after baking your first batch of bread, especially when it comes out as good as this one did.
