Cracked Wheat No Knead Bread

Cracked Wheat No Knead BreadHere’s another no knead bread that I love. It’s crunchy on the outside and on the inside too! I make it with two kinds of flour (whole wheat and white) and then I add a half cup of cracked wheat to the dough. The result is a fabulous high-fiber bread with a golden crust and a delicious nutty interior with lots of crunch.

Cracked wheat is made by milling raw wheat berries into smaller pieces, preserving the nutrient and fiber rich bran and germ layers. So this delicious loaf has extra fiber and protein, and cracked wheat is also a good source of iron.

If you like hearty, farm-style bread with extra crunch, you will love this recipe. I have never been able to find cracked wheat at the  store so I order it online, solely to make this recipe. Cracked wheat is a series of uncooked, hard, dry pieces and looks like this:

Cracked WheatI have also made the same recipe with steel-cut oats but it does not have the flavor or texture that this one does.  I use the overnight version to allow the uncooked cracked wheat time to soften. Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

    You look like an angel,

    Made hopeless cooks
    Chefs above par

    From Covid’s punch,
    We’re eating gourmet,
    Not simple lunch,
    Without adding inches
    Nor robbing the banks
    You’re greatly admired,
    Billion times “Thanks”

    Hi Jenny….simply love all your recipes especially all the bread, rye in particular. I came across an oven thermometer in a drawer so when heating up for the rye bread I placed it in the oven to check it out…….turned out my oven took another 20 min before reaching the desired temperature ……so the dough had actually been left for about an hour instead of the 35min and the result was fabulous. The dough hard risen much higher by the time I placed it in the oven resulting in a much lighter and larger delicious loaf…………perfection!……I had to try very hard not to finish the whole loaf myself, To me you are heaven sent , thanks so much.
