This is the second of the cool rise recipes I've tried. This is a wonderful bread, with great flavors!
2-1/2 cups flour
1-3/4 cups whole wheat flour
6 tsp or 2 pkgs yeast
2 tsp salt
3 tbsp honey
2 tbsp butter or margarine, softened
grated peel of 1 whole lemon
1-3/4 cups very warm water
Following the same procedure detailed in my Cool Rise White bread, pouring the water into either a bowl or the bread machine pan and sprinkling the yeast over it. Add the other ingredients and mix following the directions I've provided previously. Form into two loaves, and put them into two 8-1/2 x 4-1/2 loaf pans. Brush the top of the bread with salad oil, and brush two pieces of waxed paper with oil. Cover the loaves with the waxed paper, wrap loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours. When you're ready to bake the bread, remove it from the oven and place it on the stove, preheat the bread to 350F for glass pans or 375F for metal ones. When the oven is preheated, put the loaves in and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until done. Let it cool a few minutes for easier slicing, and serve.
The lemon flavor in this is very subtle, but when toasted it becomes much more pronounced. Look at the beautiful bits of lemon peel in this slice!
It started snowing here last night; it was really pretty around midnight.
We only got 1" of snow, but it was very wet and heavy. This is the same tree this morning.
Sadly, the next storm is scheduled for tomorrow night. They haven't decided if we're going to get a little snow, or 8 to 10 inches. As soon as they tell me where to call to express my preferences, you know I'll be voting for the dusting!
Edited to add: Melanie was right, I mistyped the amount of salt in this recipe, and have corrected it. This should be 2 teaspoons of salt, not 2 tablespoons!
