Q: What is it you like, so much, about this cracked wheat recipe?
(Did we mention that it's easy to make?)
It would not be a misnomer to call this a "cracked wheat bread" except that with almost all other cracked wheat breads, they are based on white bread with a little bit of over-softened cracked wheat added in (or over-crispy bits added to the outside). This is 50 % whole wheat bread with a full 1/3 cup of cracked wheat added in. It would also be correct to call this a light (well, maybe medium at 50 %) whole wheat bread except that cracked wheat kernels in (even) a light whole wheat (at around 25 %) is rather uncommon. This loaf is a dietary fiber winner!
Mostly oil free, this loaf is a bit more than a pound (around 500 g) has only one teaspoon of salt and and 1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar. While you may elect to make small adjustments based on taste, this vegan loaf is an excellent, all purpose, light whole wheat bread ... with cracked wheat.
As with most of our recipes, no particularly special tools are required to make this light whole wheat bread. This is a foundation bread in many households. Like the basic white utility bread, this loaf is not sweet, salty or rich with milk. It is simply a wholesome tasting, light whole wheat bread with cracked wheat berries. Also like the basic white utility bread, Jewish bakers may be confident that this recipe is kosher and pareve, just as Muslim home bakers will know this recipe is halal.
