Cracked Wheat Bread

bread header

I’ve always enjoyed commercially-made cracked wheat bread, so I sought out a recipe for it to make some at home. I found one in James Beard’s “Beard on Bread” cookbook. The finished bread was very nice and a perfect sandwich bread. Not too heavy, at all, with nice texture from the cracked wheat.

I have adapted the recipe to use instant yeast. If you’d like to use dry active yeast, proof the yeast in 1/3 cup water and reduce the milk to one cup.
