Millet bread

Using my basic recipe for Traditional Whole Wheat Bread, I doctored it up to include millet.  We love this...the millet gives the bread yellow dots, and if you don't cook it to mush, it makes the bread crunchy.

Millet Yeast Bread
Makes 2 standard sized loaves


3 c whole millet, soaked in 1 1/2 c hot water 

1 1/2 c lukewarm water (85 - 105 degrees)
1 1/2 T dry yeast (2 packages)
2 - 4 T honey
1 c dry milk powder
2 c whole wheat flour
2 c white bread flour

Part two:
4 t salt
1/4 c oil
3 c whole wheat flour
Up to 1 c flour for kneading

Place the millet and hot water in a bowl to soak.  Proceed with the instructions for Whole Wheat Bread (link above), adding the millet along with the salt and oil in Part two.
