Graham Cracker Bread

Cooking Light NOVEMBER 1997

  • Yield: 16 servings (serving size: 1 slice)

Ingredients

  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (105° to 115°)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cinnamon graham cracker crumbs (about 5 full cracker sheets)
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chilled stick margarine, cut into small pieces
  • 2/3 cup warm water (105° to 115°)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water; let stand 5 minutes.

Place 2 cups all-purpose flour and next 5 ingredients (all-purpose flour through salt) in a food processor; pulse 4 times. Add margarine; process 10 seconds. With processor on, slowly add yeast mixture and 2/3 cup water through food chute; process until combined. With processor on, add 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour through food chute, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough leaves sides of bowl and forms a ball. Process 15 additional seconds.

Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk. Punch dough down; divide into 3 equal portions. Working with one portion at a time (cover remaining dough to keep from drying), shape each portion into a 12-inch rope. Place 3 ropes lengthwise on a large baking sheet; pinch ends together at one end to seal. Braid ropes; pinch loose ends to seal. Place in an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk.

Preheat oven to 375°.

Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pan immediately; cool on a wire rack.
