I made whole wheat cinnamon-raisin bread this evening and the house smells so good! I almost can’t wait until fall and winter weather when it’s cold and baking bread will help warm up the house any time of day.
After baking bread all summer, I’ve learned what ingredients I can tweak. This is the basic master recipe but heavy on the white whole wheat:
- I substituted some of the flour with a cup of oats and ½ cup wheat germ
- I substituted a cup of “buttermilk” (soy milk plus cider vinegar) for one of the cups of water
- I added a couple of tablespoons of ground flax, plus cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins, and a few tablespoons of soy yogurt
