Looking for the best WHOLE WHEAT BREAD recipe:#3 an amateur contest.

Looking for the best whole wheat bread recipe: an amateur contest;
#3 GENE'S  whole wheat bread machine's recipe (Cuisinart bread machine).



This is the recipe Gene used  for Cuisinart  machine, whole wheat bread cycle:


1 1/2 - 1 2/3 cup hot milk put in the machine.
2 heaping teaspoons salt.
3 tablespoons of molasses
put 4 cups whole wheat flour over the previous ingredients.
4 tablespoons gluten
two heaping teaspoons of dry yeast.

I set machine for regular white bread setting for a 2 pound loaf,   lightest temperature setting for the crust.


I had great luck with this,
Gene.


COMPARE THE GENE'S BREAD (LEFT) WITH JANICE'S BREAD (RIGHT)



FINAL NOTES:

 This is the bread that I like the most, adding warm milk instead of water, I think, make all the difference. This is a good idea for all bread machine recipes, instead of adding warm water + dry milk.



Janice was not so happy with the taste, of this bread.


Gene liked the most my recipe, but he did few modifications.

Looking for the best WHOLE WHEAT BREAD recipe: #2- an amateur contest

Looking for the best whole wheat bread recipe: an amateur contest;

#2- Janice's whole wheat bread, by bread machine ( west bend )



 This is the recipe that Janice tries in her Bread machine “West Bend".

It is a heavy, well cooked loaf of bread, and very tasty and fulfilling.

It is only me that I try; we are looking for what Gene is going to say, and Brandon. Gene liked very much my whole wheat bread, which I baked, using Gluten.


Janice recipe is using 1 cup white flour and 2 cups whole wheat flour. The white flour brings the gluten that needs it for the lack of it in whole wheat.

Janice didn't use gluten, nor the butter.


1 and 1/4 cup warm water

2 tbs brown sugar

1/8 tsp ginger

1and 1/2 tsp salt

2tsp yeast

3 cups whole wheat flour / Janice used 2c wwflour+1c wflour

She just added 1/4 cup oats, to be crispy.
