~ Harvest Bread ~

2 T active dry yeast
1 1/4 cups warm water
1 t sugar
1 cup milk
1 t salt
4 T light molasses
6 T butter, softened
3 cups whole wheat flour
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
1/4 cup chopped raisins
1/4 cup grated carrot
1 egg
Dash of salt

Combine the yeast, warm water, and sugar in
a large bowl and let sit for 15 minutes. In
a separate bowl, combine the milk, salt,
molasses, and butter. Stir well and add to
yeast mixture. Slowly add the whole wheat
flour and all-purpose flour. Remove the
dough from the bowl and knead it on a floured
surface, adding more all-purpose flour as
necessary to keep the dough from getting too
sticky. Knead in the nuts, seeds, apricots,
raisins, and grated carrot. Try to distribute
the treats evenly through the dough. When
the dough feels smooth after about 10 minutes
of kneading, form it into a ball and coat with
butter. Place the ball into a large bowl and
cover with plastic wrap. After about an hour
and a half, the dough should double in bulk.
Punch down the dough, divide it into two
loaves, and place in buttered 8-1/4 inch loaf
pans. The loaves should be left to rise again
for about 45 minutes. Beat together the egg,
water, and salt for the egg wash. Brush the
loaves with the glaze, then bake at 400F for
45 minutes. The loaves should sound hollow
when you tap the bottom of the pan.
Makes 2 loaves


For gift giving set each loaf on top of small
bread board. Wrap in Saran Wrap. Embellish with
a homespun fabric bow and gift tag.
