Ingredients (Makes 1 Loaf)

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (just barely hot to the touch)

  • 1 package active dry yeast (1/4 ounce)

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon whole flaxseed (optional)

  • 2 1/2 cups KAMUT flour

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1/2 tablespoon salt

  • 1 3/4 cups KAMUT flour

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

  • Directions

    In a large bowl, mix warm water, yeast, 2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar, and 1 tablespoon of flaxseed (optional). Mix in 2 1/2 cups of KAMUT flour. Let set for 30 minutes, or until it doubles in size.

    Mix in 1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter, 2 1/2 tablespoons of brown sugar, and salt. Knead in the other 1 3/4 cups of KAMUT flour. Flour a flat surface and continue kneading with flour until dough pulls away from the counter but is still sticky to touch. This may take an additional 1 to 2 cups of flour. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat the surface of the dough. Cover with a dish towel. Let rise in a warm place until doubled (about 30 minutes).

    Punch down and place in greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. Allow to rise until dough has topped the pan by one inch. Depending on your yeast this will take between
    1 - 2 hours.

    Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes; do not over bake. Lightly brush the tops of loaves with 1 tablespoon of melted butter when done to prevent crust from getting hard. Cool completely.

    Substitutions and Additions

    Honey can be substituted for the brown sugar.

    Whole wheat pastry flour can be substituted for the 2 1/2 cups of KAMUT flour for an even lighter and fluffier whole grain bread.

    To give this recipe a crunch, consider adding walnuts.

    In this KAMUT bread recipe we included the option for flaxseed because here at we are big proponents of incorporating flaxseed into your diet. Its high protein, fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids makes flaxseed a nutritional powerhouse your body can use to fight depression, cancer, and heart disease.
