Monastery Of Angels Brown Bread Recipe

Step 1

Combine 1 cup water with brown sugar, shortening, salt, carob powder and sesame seeds in mixing bowl. Stir with spoon or whip until mixture is just blended. Place yeast in remaining 1 cup water and let stand to dissolve. Mix flour with instant milk powder. Reserve 1 cup. Combine remaining flour mixture with sugar mixture and add yeast mixture. Mix on low speed until ingredients are well incorporated, then turn speed to medium and beat 4 to 5 minutes. If necessary, add reserved flour gradually. Flour mixture should leave sides of bowl. Cover bowl with clean cloth, then cover with plastic wrap to speed rising. Let rise 1 1/2 hours until doubled in bulk. Punch dough down and let rise again, 20 to 30 minutes.
