Buckwheat Whole Wheat Bread

I wanted to use up some Buckwheat Pancake mix I had in the cupboard (I was the only one that liked it) so I decided to hide it in some bread! Sneaky, huh! Well, it worked really well! This bread is nice and moist and is a pretty dark brown with a slight nutty taste! I might have to buy some more Buckwheat Pancake mix now!

Buckwheat Whole Wheat Bread

2 cups Buckwheat pancake mix
3 cups whole wheat flour
5 cups four
2 tablespoons yeast
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons salt
1/3 cup molasses
1 cup powdered milk, instant, dry
4 cups warm water

In your mixer pour the water, sprinkle the yeast over the top then about 1 tablespoon of the 1/2 cup sugar. Let this sit for about 5 minutes to proof. Then in the mixer, combine oil, sugar, eggs, molasses and powdered milk. Add and about three cups of flour and begin mixing. Gradually add the remaining flour. Knead in mixer for 10 minutes.

You will want it sticky to the touch but not sticking to your finger. Remove the dough to a large greased bowl. Cover with a towel and let rise until double in size.

Punch the dough down. Remove from bowl. Divide into four equal parts, on a greased counter, I like to use my bench scraper to cut the dough into equal pieces. Make into a ball and spank to get bubbles out. With your hands pull the ends under and pinch the bottom seam. Place seam down into greased loaf pans. Cover and let rise until nicely rounded, about 30 minutes.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.

Thanks for the idea, Carol. I love buckwheat pancakes, but like you, I may be the only one in my house who feels that way. On the other hand, my kids won't eat that squishy stuff they call "bread" in the stores. I have committed to baking more bread this fall and winter. Thanks for sharing.

I'm not a buckwheat fan but it does LOOOK good! Must get to baking bread again around here too! :-)

Carol, that is SO clever! I never would have thought of using pancake mix in a bread. Good for you!
