Sample Recipe

Triple-Seed Brown Bread

A sandwich bread with a rich color and addedcrunch – what a treat!
Makes 15 slices

1-1/4 cups (300 mL) sorghum flour
2/3 cup (150 mL) whole bean flour
1/3 cup (75 mL ) tapioca starch
1/3 cup (75 mL ) rice bran
1/3 cup (75 mL) buttermilk powder
1 tablespoon (15 mL) xanthan gum
1-1/2 teaspoon (7 mL) bread machine or instant yeast
1-1/4 teaspoon (6 mL) salt
1/3 cup (75 mL) unsalted green pumpkin seeds, toasted
1/3 cup (75 mL) unsalted raw sunflower seeds, toasted
1/4 cup (60 mL) sesame seeds, toasted
1-1/4 cups (300 mL) water
2 tablespoons (30 mL) vegetable oil
2 tablespoons (30 mL) liquid honey
2 tablespoons (30 mL) light (fancy) molasses
1 teaspoon (5 mL) cider vinegar
3 eggs, lightly beaten

In a large bowl or plastic bag, combine sorghum flour, whole bean flour, tapioca starch, rice bran, buttermilk powder, xanthan gum, yeast, salt, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds; mix well and set aside.

Pour water, oil, honey, molasses and vinegar into the bread machine baking pan. Add eggs.

Select the Dough Cycle. As the bread machine is mixing, gradually add the dry ingredients, scraping bottom and sides of pan with a rubber spatula. Try to incorporate all the dry ingredients within 1 to 2 minutes. When the mixing and kneading are complete, remove the kneading blade, leaving the bread pan in the bread machine. Quickly smooth the top of the loaf. Allow the cycle to finish. Turn off the bread machine.

Select the Bake Cycle. Set time to 60 minutes and temperature to 350°F (180(C). Allow the cycle to finish. Do not turn machine off before taking the internal temperature of the loaf with an instant-read thermometer. It should be 200°F (100°C). If it’s between 180°F (85°C) and 200°F (100°C), leave machine on the Keep Warm Cycle until baked. If it’s below 180°F (85°C), turn on the Bake Cycle and check the internal temperature every 10 minutes. (Some bread machines are automatically set for 60 minutes; others need to be set by 10-minute intervals.)

Once the loaf has reached 200°F (100°C), remove it from the pan immediately and let cool completely on a rack.

You can purchase buttermilk powder in bulk stores and health food stores.

For a milder bread, substitute packed brown sugar for the molasses. Substitute brown rice flour, raw hemp powder or flaxseed meal for the rice bran. Replace the sesame seeds with cracked flaxseed, Hemp Hearts or poppy seeds
