Tasty Tuesday: Dave's Killer Wheat Bread



My dad travels around quite a bit. One of the things that he collects during his travels is new recipes. This Tasty Tuesday treat is one from his collection. He got it when he was in Montana from a lady named Linda, who got it from someone on the internet, that made a copycat recipe of an actual bread that's available for purchase called Dave's Killer Bread 100% Whole Wheat. It's delicious and well worth the hassle it took to locate and purchase vital wheat gluten.

So, here's the recipe as I received and made it:

Dave's Killer Whole Wheat Bread


3 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar or honey
1 Tbsp. plus 1/2 tsp. yeast
2 1/4 cups warm water
1 1/2 Tbsp. molasses
1 Tbsp. canola oil
Proof yeast in some of the water. Mix well with all above ingredients. Beat 5 minutes. Cover and set aside for one hour.

Add 1/4 cup gluten (VITAL WHEAT GLUTEN, This is flour with the starch and bran removed.), 2 tsp. salt and enough whole wheat flour to make a sticky, smooth dough. If dough seems too dry, add a little water. Beat 10 minutes. Divide into two pieces. Cover with damp towel, rest 15 minutes. Form two loaves. Let rise about an hour in greased pans. Bake at 350 degrees 30-40 minutes or until well-browned and done.



Here are my notes: I did use sugar instead of honey, though I think honey would be awesome. It takes about another 3 cups of whole wheat flour after the sponge rests. I made one in a loaf pan and one free form on a baking sheet, both were excellent. Makes excellent sandwiches and toast.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
