OAT AND WHEAT SEEDED BREAD
Makes four 1-pound loaves. May be doubled or halved.
2 cups whole wheat flour
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
11/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 Tablespoons flaxseed
3/4 cup pumpkin seeds, plus more for crust
3/4 cup sunflower seeds, plus more for crust
1/4 cup sesame seeds
2 packets granulated yeast
1 Tablespoon kosher salt
1/4 cup vital wheat gluten
3 cups lukewarm water
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Mix dry ingredients and seeds together.Combine liquid ingredients together; stir into dry ingredients.
Use 14-cup food processor, heavy-duty mixer or hands.
Cover (not airtight); allow to rest at room temperature until it rises & collapses, about 2 hours.
Refrigerate 24 hours up to 4 days loosely covered.
Prepare for baking: dust surface of refrigerated dough with flour; cut into grapefruit size pieces.
Dust with a little more flour; shape into ovals by stretching surface to bottom rotating as you go.
METHOD #1: Sprinkle seeds on a silicone mat on a cookie sheet; place ovals allowing space to spread. For baking after rising, slide silicone mat onto heated baking stone.
METHOD #2: Sprinkle seeds over cornmeal on a cookie sheet.
Allow loaf to rest & rise covered loosely with plastic wrap for 90 minutes.
Thirty (30) minutes before baking time, preheat oven to 400 degrees. If using baking stone place on middle rack.
(optional step Place an empty low-sided metal pan on lower rack. Pour hot water into metal pan; quickly close oven door to trap steam which creates a crisper crust.)
Before baking, “paint” loaves with water and sprinkle with seeds. Bake for about 40 minutes until richly brown and firm.
Cool on rack before slicing. May be frozen.
