Irish Brown Bread
3 1/2 Cups whole wheat flour
1/2 Cup white all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
5 oz plus additional 10 oz of tepid water
1 Tbsp dark molasses or maple syrup or honey
2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast or 1 ounce fresh yeast
Mix flours with salt in medium bowl.
pour 5 oz of water into small bowl with molasses and yeast. Let stand until it starts to foam on top. About 10 minutes.
Pour yeast mixture and remaining water into the flour and stir until a batter is formed. It should have consistency of oatmeal. It should be sticky and rather wet. Let stand 10 minutes.
Spray 9 inch loaf pan with nonstick spray and cut a piece of parchment to line bottom of the pan. Scrape the dough into pan. Drape a kitchen towel over the top and let rise in a warm place until the dough reaches the top of the pan- about 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 450° F. Bake for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes decrease heat to 400° F. Remove bread from oven. Run a knife around the edge of pan to release bread. Remove parchment and place the loaf upside down directly on baking rack. Bake another 15 minutes or until done. The bread is ready when you tap the bottom and it sounds hollow.
