How to Make 1946 Cornell Health Bread
- NOTE: Sunflower seeds are a nice addition to this bread if you like them. They add nutrition and a little texture. However, many kids won't eat the bread with them in it. Use your judgement on whether to add them.
- Dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside.
Mix hot scalded milk, sugar, butter, and salt in a small bowl. Cool to lukewarm (important!) and then mix with yeast mixture.
- Mix in soy flour, dry milk, wheat germ, and 3 cups flour. If using sunflower seeds add now. Mix well. Add remaining flour 1 cup at a time to make a firm but workable dough. You may not need all the flour.
On a floured board knead dough for 8-10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Use as little extra flour as possible while kneading.
- Shape dough into a ball and place in a well buttered bowl. Turn dough to get butter on all sides. cover bowl with a towel and sit in a warm spot to rise.
Let rise about 1 hour until double in bulk. While dough is rising prepare 2 loaf pans (8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches) by greasing well.
Punch dough down and let rest for 5 minutes. Knead for about 2 minutes.
Shape into 2 loaves and place in prepared pans. Cover and let rise for 50-60 minutes until doubled again.
- A few minutes before bread is ready to bake preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake loaves for 30-35 minutes. Bread should be nicely browned and sound hollow when tapped on top. Remove from oven and remove from pan. Cool on a wire rack.
