Questions. We love to get them here at Honeyville. Whether it's an enthusiastic individual wondering how to begin building up their food storage or a long-time baker looking for the right ingredient to make their bread dough a little softer, questions are always welcomed here at the Honeyville blog.
It was that love for questions that led to today's blog post. Earlier this week one of our long-time followers wrote in to us and asked for a bread recipe featuring our delicious and very popular 9 Grain Cracked Cereal Mix. To our surprise, we had never posted a recipe using this versatile ingredient in a light, fluffy loaf. We knew we had to make this happen, and quick!
When it comes to making simple, delicious bread, sometimes going back to the basics is always best! That's why today's recipe doesn't involve high-powered mixers or over-the-top ingredients. Today's recipe is all about simplicity...and taste, of course! So grab that apron and a bag of Alta Artisan Flour, it's time to bake up some No Knead 9 Grain Bread!
3 cups Honeyville Alta Artisan Bread Flour
1 cup Honeyville 9 Grain Cracked Cereal Mix
1 3/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp SAF Yeast
2 cups Water (room temperature)
First, mix your dry ingredients:
In a large bowl, combine flour, cereal mix, salt, and yeast, and whisk together until fully combined.
Next, slowly add water and , using your Danish Dough Whisk, whisk the ingredients together until a soft, sticky dough forms.
Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Generously flour a hard surface or counter top, then dump dough on top of flour. Gently fold over each side of dough, just enough to make sure each side and top is covered with flour, then lightly shape into a round ball.
Place ball on a sheet of parchment paper and lower into your Dutch Oven. I used a 5 quart to bake this loaf.
Place lid on Dutch Oven and place in your oven. Bake at 450 degrees for 30 minutes, then remove lid and allow to bake an additional 5 minutes before removing from oven. Once removed, let bread sit in warm Dutch Oven for 15 minutes before removing and serving.
This bread is packed full of flavor, texture, and aroma. The 9 Grain Cracked Cereal Mix adds a level of taste and texture you simply can't find anywhere else! The bread bakes up light, fluffy, and with just the right amount of crispness on the crust. And the look of the loaf is absolutely amazing. With just the perfect amount of rustic charm, this bread is sure to be a hit at your home.
