Easy At-Home Breads

It’s been a while since I posted a recipe. I am currently away from home but I still want to post these recipes that were made a couple of weeks ago.

1. Whole Foods’ Cranberry Walnut Bread I follow 13 going on 30’s recipe.I prefer making the recipe without cinnamon and it’s easy to add in any extra nuts, seeds or dried fruit.

 2.  Whole Foods’ Seeduction Bread

I follow the recipe from Taste Book but omit the egg, wheat gluten and 10 grain cereal. I also use 2 cups of whole wheat flour + 1 cup all-purpose flour wheat and 1 cup of all-purpose flour instead.
3. Whole Wheat Ciabatta Bread
Although this one takes a bit longer to rise, it is one of the easiest breads to make.
Whole Wheat Ciabatta Bread
Yield: 2 loaves

2  1/ 4 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
pinch of salt
1 tsp granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp dry active yeast

1 1/2 cup warm water
1 tbsp olive oil

Dried herbs + black pepper for garnishing

1. Combine flour, salt, sugar and yeast in one bowl. In another, combine the water and oil.
2. Combine wet and dry ingredients. Mix just enough to incorporate everything. Cover and let it rise for 18 hours.
3. On a floured surface, fold the sides of the bread inwards. Then the top and bottom inwards. Continue folding a few more times. Cover and let it rise again for 2 hours.
4. Divide the dough in 2. Shape as you like. Make a slit on each loaf. Top with dried herbs, spices.
5. Bake at 375 degrees F for 40-45 minutes.
