Orange Amaranth Bread

Recipe by  

"Made with a mix of white and wheat bread flours, amaranth flour, orange zest, and honey, this bread has a unique slightly sweet flavor and wonderful aroma. Suitable to make by hand or in your bread machine. I adapted this recipe from one I found online, while looking for bread recipes that use amaranth flour. Very good with butter and honey. Amaranth flour is available from Bob's Red Mill®. Stores that have a decent selection of natural foods or natural markets should stock it."

Directions

  1. Stir water, honey, and yeast together in a large bowl. Let stand until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 10 minutes.
  2. Whisk bread flour, whole wheat bread flour, amaranth flour, and vital wheat gluten flour together in a bowl.
  3. Stir orange zest, vegetable oil, and salt into yeast mixture. Gradually add flour mixture to yeast mixture to form a sturdy dough. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
  4. Place dough in a large, lightly-oiled bowl and turn to coat. Cover with a damp towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  5. Lightly grease a loaf pan.
  6. Punch down dough, turn onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 5 to 6 times. Form dough into loaf and place into prepared pan. Let rise until doubled in volume, 30 to 45 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  8. Bake in preheated oven until the top is golden brown and the bottom of loaf sounds hollow when tapped, about 40 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you are using a bread machine, place the ingredients into the pan according to your machine's instructions. I recommend mixing the flours before adding to ensure even distribution. Use the basic white cycle.
