Preparation

Pumpernickel bread floured is a delicious vegan recipe that is great for any meal of snack. Total preparation, raising, and baking time is about 2 hours. This is a healthful, whole grain bread recipe. Use the pumpernickel bread for any sandwich or just to eat with a salad or meal. Pumpernickel bread slices are also great toasted for breakfast.

Add the ingredients to a mixing bowl or to the bread maker container. Once the flour has been added, hollow out the center of the flour slightly and place the other ingredients in the depression. (NOTE: If you fresh grind the grain, and the flour is warm, do not preheat the water.) Start the mixing process. The total kneading time should be approximately 20 minutes. Add a little additional water if needed to aid the kneading process.

Place a thin layer of flour on a bread board or clean counter top and flour your hands. Place the dough on the flour and form into a ball making sure all dough is covered with flour. Place the loaf ball in a terracotta or other baking pan or on a pizza stone coated with a little of the flour that was left over on the counter top to keep the bread from sticking.

Baking

Set the warming drawer of your oven to low, or the oven to a warm setting 45C (120F maximum). Be careful that the oven does not overheat. Place the baking pans or pizza stone in the drawer or oven to raise the dough.

When the dough is slightly over double the size, preheat the oven to 175-180C (350-360F). Bake for approximately 35 to 40 minutes. When the crust is firm, but not crispy, the bread is done. Remove the bread from the oven and cool the loaf on a wire rack.

Enjoy!

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
