To all my celiac and gluten-free friends- I’m sorry, this recipe is not for you… but it was so good, I had to post it for those who could enjoy it!

Here are some yummy gluten-free breads. 🙂 Corn of the Cob Bread, GF Whole Grain Bread,GF “White” Bread

Aunt Judi’s 100% Whole Wheat Bread (Modified by Me, Ari)

(Note: I use my bread maker to knead it. Judi notes if you don’t use that or a kitchen aid, you won’t get as well of a rise.)

Yields: 2 loaves and rolls

6 cups freshly ground wheat (red or white)
2 1/2 T yeast
1 1/2 T salt
Whisk the dry ingredients together. Then add:
2 1/4 cups warm water

¼ c. honey
1/2 cup oil (melted organic palm oil shortening keeps this especially really moist)

Stir until blended well and very sticky. Place into mixer. Mix until you see the dough start forming a ball and coming away from the sides of the bowl. Turn onto a floured surface and knead a few times with your hands. Place in an oiled bowl and rise covered with a towel until double in bulk, about 1 hour. Punch down dough. Divide into two or three loaves depending on the size of your loaf pans. I make 2 loaves and use the rest for rolls. (or 2 large loaves). Shape into loaves and place in well greased loaf pans, covered. Let rise until forming a nice loaf shape barely over the tops of your pans, approximately 30 minutes. Bake in a preheated oven 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Soon after they are done, “paint” with butter to keep loaves soft. When they are cool, store in Ziploc bags.
Enjoy!

Cinnamon Raisin Variation:

For each loaf: Add ¾-1 c. raisins with the other ingredients. Add 1+ tsp cinnamon too. Really Good!
