As I mentioned in my earlier post I got my hand crank family grain mill in the mail. This is my first grain mill ever so I was pretty elated. I got it used on ebay for $80. Last night we all took turns, we ground some wheat berries and some flax seed.
After the kids went to bed I cracked some wheat and this morning we enjoyed hot cracked wheat cereal. It was very tasty, I added some ground flax and butter, and threw in some chocolate chips too. :)
I was wanting to try out a multi-grain bread with the flour I had ground, and actually tried out a recipe I found on All-recipes, it is for a bread machine, but since I don't own one (we don't get along) I adapted it for my oven.
It makes a very small round loaf, so you will want to double it if you have several to feed.
Hearty Multigrain Bread
I simply dissolved the brown sugar and yeast in warm water and added the rest of the ingredients, kneaded some and let rise for an hour and a half. Then I shaped into a round loaf, let rise 30-45 minutes and baked @ 350 for about 30-35 minutes.
We enjoyed this as a wonderful afternoon snack with butter, the kids really liked it, and I did too!!! :)
