Flax Seed Bread

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup bread flour
1 cup warm water
1 2 1/4 teaspoons package dry yeast
3/4 cup flaxseed
3 tablespoons nonfat dry milk
2 tablespoons wheat-bran cereal
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon molasses
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons bread flour
Cooking spray
2 teaspoons cornmeal
1 large egg white, lightly beaten

Directions:
Combine the bread flour, water, and yeast in a large bowl and stir well with a whisk. Cover and let stand at room temperature for one hour. Place 1/2 cup flaxseed in a spice or coffee grinder and process until finely ground. Add the ground flaxseed, whole-wheat flour, 2 tablespoons whole flaxseed, nonfat dry milk, wheat-bran cereal, honey, molasses, and salt to the yeast mixture, and stir until a soft dough forms. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, 5-10 minutes, adding in bread flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, as needed to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands. Shape the dough into a 5″ round loaf and place it on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray and sprinkled with cornmeal. Brush the loaf with egg white and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon flaxseed. Make 3 diagonal cuts 1/4-inch-deep across top of loaf using a sharp knife. Cover the dough and let it rise about 1 1/2 hours, or until it doubles in size. Bake at 375° F for approximately 30 minutes. Remove bread from the pan and cool on a wire rack.

Any chance nutritional information can be divulged with your recipes? I’m diabetic and need to watch carbs, fat and calories. Thanks!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
