How's all the WHO bread doing out there? I'm thrilled you're trying it and liking it. One very important thing I forgot to mention when I posted the recipe - you have to say WHOOOOOO Bread - like an owl. You just have to - it's a rule (my children say so).
A lot of you asked for a non-bread machine version of the recipe, and I'm happy to tell you that we have one! Allison from In A Nutshell sent along her translation, and was gracious enough to let me share it here with you, too. In her words:
WHO Bread - acoustic style
(bread machine recipe here)
1 1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons butter @ room temperature
1 tsp salt
3 cups of flour (we do 2 cups unbleached white, 1 cup whole wheat pastry)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast (or, one package)
Pour 1 1/4c. warm water (about 110 degrees F), honey, sugar,
and yeast into a bowl. Whisk until well combined and mixture is frothy. Set
aside to proof while you mix together the other ingredients.
In a separate large bowl stir together, flour, butter, salt, rolled oats, and cinnamon.
Pour yeast mixture into flour mixture, and mix until thoroughly combined. (I like to do this with my hands.)
Place dough into a lightly oiled bread pan. Cover with a damp towel and leave in a warm spot to rise for about an hour (45 min. if youâre impatient!). Punch down dough and let rise a second time for 45 minutes, covered with a damp towel.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove towel from top of dough and place pan in the center of your oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Done!
Thank you Allison!
We gave it a go yesterday, and it was indeed yummy and light and quite fun to make. Adelaide thought it was worthy enough of a bread-with-tea party. Though I did have a toss-up between what I wanted to eat more - the bread or the baby.
I mean, seriously.
