Wild Rice & Cranberry Loaves Recipe

Publisher Photo
This is an incredibly fragrant bread with lots of texture from wild rice and dried cranberries. It's hearty enough for sandwiches, but with a touch of honey, I could even eat this for dessert! —Barbara Miller, Oakdale, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 2 cups King Arthur Premium 100% Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) quick-rise yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 2 teaspoons aniseed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 4 to 4-1/2 cups King Arthur Unbleached Bread Flour
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup cooked wild rice, cooled

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix the first seven ingredients and 1-1/2 cups bread flour. In a small saucepan, heat milk, water, molasses and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Stir in cranberries, rice and enough remaining bread flour to form a stiff dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest 10 minutes.
  3. Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape into loaves. Place in two greased 9x5-in. loaf pans, seam side down. Cover with kitchen towels; let rise in a warm place until almost doubled, about 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°.
  4. Bake 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (16 servings each).
