Low-Fat, High-Flavor Dining

A Continental-Style Garden Buffet or a Country Picnic by Lou Seibert Pappas Note: The flours may vary in this wholesome bread. If barley is unavailable substitute wholewheat.

Place in a saucepan 2 cups of the water and the oatmeal; bring to a boil for 1 minute, and pour into a mixing bowl; let cool to lukewarm temperature. Sprinkle yeast into the remaining ½ cup water and let stand until dissolved. Add the orange zest, yeast, salt, oil and molasses to the mixture. Heat milk until warm and stir in. Gradually add the barley, rye, and bread flours, mixing to make a soft dough.

Turn out on a lightly floured board and knead until smooth and elastic.

Place in a bowl, grease top lightly, cover and let rise until doubled in size. Turn out of pan, punch down, and knead to remove air bubbles. Divide into three parts and shape into loaves. Place in greased 9 by 5-inch loaf pans or shape into round loaves and place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled in size. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the loaves sound hollow when thumped. Makes 3 loaves.
