Wing of Life Bread
The bread this book is named for--strong, scrumptious, and inspiring, it's filled with ripe bananas, dried fruit, and walnuts. Try Wings of Life any way, any time of the day.
WINGS OF LIFE BREAD
2½ cups yoghurt or yoghurt that didn't yoge
3 or 4 very ripe bananas
¼ cup butter or sesame oil
¼ cup honey
1 tablespoon sea salt
3 handfuls walnuts, in big pieces
3 handfuls dried apricots, in big pieces
3 handfuls raisins
9 to 10 cups (more or less) whole wheat flour
Follow directions in the general unyeasted bread recipe. To give your loaves a rich sheen, rub, them lightly with butter when they're hot from the oven.
--If you add more of the nuts or fruit than is called for, your bread will be even better.
--Use part rye flour for a deeper taste.
Yield: 2 round loaves
Warning: This recipe should really be made with fresh ground whole wheat flour which is coarser and more aerated than store bought flour. If you must use store bought flour, be sure to knead the bread at least ten minutes. Please expect a very dense bread which is luscious and tasty; it in no way resembles breads made with yeast.
