7-Grain Bread

15 posts in this topic

Suppose I could adapt one of my own recipes, but, hey, I'd love to see your successful ones for 7-grain bread. Hate to be picky, but I don't use a bread machine so those aren't needed.

Thanks much!

PM me your e-mail address and I'll send it to you via mastercook. I'm too lazy to type it all out.

While you guys are at it, I'd love to get hold of a tried & true recipe for a really dense, heavy, dark multigrain bread (not plain pumpernickel) baked in a bread machine. We have a new bread machine and my husband can't find the recipe he used to bake dark bread in our old one.

Suzy, when I did a google search for seven-grain bread, I recall seeing at least a couple of bread machine recipes. I didn't get them because I don't use a machine. Let me know if you're unable to find them.

Our family absolutely loves this bread. It's a big recipe, and I use my own shorthand in the instructions, so feel free to pm me if you have any questions....

You can find the recipe <a href="http://www.recipesonrails.com/recipes/show/76">here</a>

Great looking bread! I'm going to try it. Where can I find the biga recipe? Also, I'd probably try using some whole wheat flour. Have you tried that?

Thanks much!

Ooops, sorry about that. We upgraded the site, but I forgot to modify the recipe. At the very bottom of the page, you should find a link now to both the biga recipe and the multi-grain mix recipe. Click on the downward arrow (or V) and the recipe will expand out. Or, alternatively, you can use the search in the upper right corner....

I almost always add the cracked wheat, but never substituted in some whole wheat. I didin't think it needed it. I know some people want to cut back on white flour, but I'd strongly suggest you try it out without substitution first, and then change away to meet your own family's tastes. This one is really a keeper..... Please post a comment at www.recipesonrails.com to let me know what you thought of it...

The VERY BEST recipe I know of is from Cooks Illustrated. It is their Multi-grain Bread that came out a few issues ago. They use seven-grain hot cereal (Like Bobs Red Mill), Graham flour, sunflower seeds.

It is fantastic. It is light and delicious. (Yes, a light multigrain bread recipe.) There is a really long thread on CIs forum discussing this recipe.

Thanks Becca. I'll check this out too. We save all our back issues of CI.

Hey Ron,

Not sure if you're still following this thread, but I adapted my multi-grain loaf over to the no-knead process, and reduced the recipe. Made it today, and it turned out rather well....

I made rolls tonight, about 5 oz. each. You can check out the recipe, and step by step pictures by clicking HERE.

Let me know what you think if you try it out.

I agree. It was fantastic.

I'll third that recipe from CI, it's our standard sandwich bread now. There's a bowl rising on the counter as I type. I ran out last week and bought some bread and it was awful, spongy and sweet, I barely ate my lunch.

If you can believe it, my local store has 5,6,8,and 10 grain mix. No 7. The bread works great with Bob's Red Mill 10 grain.

I've made 8 loaves of the CI multigrain and agree that's VERY good! Don't know how I missed it in that issue, so thanks for sending me back to it.

      I want to leave my sourdough (itself, not baked loaves of sourdough bread) for a while (going abroad) but I do not want it to die, can I leave it in the freezer? do you have other ideas?

      Having no local Arabic bakery, I have long hoped to learn to make good khoubz at home. Every time I try, however, my bread is too stiff and tough. I have been successfully making other breads using The Bread Baker's Apprentice, and now wonder if my bread woule benefit from an overnight ferment in the refrigerator.
      FoodMan (and anyone) can you help me?

      San Diego has a small number of artisanal bread bakeries. Bread & Cie has been my favorite for years, and their breads are now available in many supermarkets, which is very convenient. But it's nice to have some variety. So I was excited to spot a new bakery this weekend in Linda Vista. It's called Pacific Time and it is also a sandwich place with a small market with things like small-batch preserves, local beers, a cheese counter, charcuterie platters, and wine. It's located within a recently renovated strip mall that also hosts Brew Mart & Ballast Point.
       
      The bread I bought was a French-type rustic boule, dark, a bit reminiscent of Poilane but less dense. The crust could have been a little more crispy (it felt like the bread had sat around a little bit and softened in the paper bag), but the flavor was wonderful.

      The team over at Modernist Cuisine announced today that their next project will be an in-depth exploration of bread. I personally am very excited about this, I had been hoping their next project would be in the baking and pastry realm. Additionally, Francisco Migoya will be head chef and Peter Reinhart will assignments editor for this project which is expected to be a multi-volume affair.

      The folks behind Modernist Cuisine have announced a projected publication date of March 2017 for their new five-volume set on bread (previously discussed here). Start saving up now!
