CRACKED WHEAT BREADcracked wheat bread

Servings: one 2-pound loaf, approximately 36 1-ounce slices


• 1 cup boiling water
• 1/2 cup cracked wheat
• 2 to 2 1/2 cups bread flour, divided
• 1 package active dry yeast
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
• 1/4 cup honey
• 2 tablespoons oil
• 1 egg, reserve 1/2 tablespoon egg white
• 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
• 1/2 cup quick cooking rolled oats
• 1/4 cup wheat germ, optional

In small bowl, pour boiling water over cracked wheat, stir and let stand 5 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450°F.

In large mixer bowl, combine softened cracked wheat, 1 cup bread flour, yeast, salt, cottage cheese, honey, oil and egg. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. Stir in whole wheat flour, oats, wheat germ and enough bread flour to make a soft dough.

Turn dough out onto lightly floured board; knead 10 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic. Dough will be slightly sticky. Place in bowl coated with non-stick spray, turn to coat top of bread. Cover; let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down. Shape into round loaf and place on a baking sheet coated with non-stick spray. Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Brush loaf with reserved egg white. Bake for 10 minutes; reduce heat to 350°F and bake 30 to 35 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when tapped with fingers. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
