Updated Sprouted Grain Bread

As I have mentioned before, I use this recipe from Urban Homemakers for a sprouted grain bread recipe. I recently decided to try playing around with it a little. The major adjustment I made today was to swap out half of the water in grinding the berries with milk. The difference is incredible. My bread is sitting on the counter rising higher then it ever has. Here is a reprint of the linked recipe, and also multiplied to make 4 loaves. (I usually do 8 loaves each week – and use 1 of them for rolls, and 1 for pizza crust.)

Sprouted Grain Bread – 4 loaves

Ingredients: Dry

  • 6 cups sprouted flour (I use white hard wheat)
  • 2.5 Tablespoons of real salt
  • 1 cup of Vital Wheat gluten/Vitamin C
Proof Yeast:
  • 4 Tablespoons Saf Yeast
  • 2 teaspoons sucanat
  • 3/4 cup very warm water
Ingredients: Wet in Blendtec or Food Processor
(Must do 2 batches of the following:)
  • 4 cups sprouted berries (I use spelt or red hard wheat)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup real milk
Method:
  1. Put all dry ingredients into your mixer bowl.
  2. In a smaller bowl, proof the yeast with the water and sugar. Let it sit while you do the wet berries.
  3. Process the wet berries ingredients in the Blendtec on the “Grind Grain” setting for 25-30 seconds or until completely pulverized into a very wet dough. Pour the wet dough into the mixer with the dry ingredients. Repeat the process for the wet berries again and pour contents into the mixer again.
  4. Add the proofed, spongy yeast mixture into the mixer.
  5. Using your dough hook, or in the Bosch, mix the dough for about 10 minutes on a low to medium setting.
  6. After 10 minutes, touch the dough. If it is very sticky, add a little sprouted flour until the dough does not stick to your fingers. There is just a fine line between very sticky dough, and slightly sticky dough. You’ll get the hang of it the more you do it.
  7. Take dough out and divide into 4 even balls. Roll out for each loaf. Place in a very well greased bread pan.
  8. Cover with a fine cloth, and let it sit a few hours to rise.
  9. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 55-60 minutes.
  10. Nothing like hot bread out of the oven! Enjoy with some real butter.
