Chart House Squaw Bread

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon molasses
2 2/3 cups bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup wheat bran
1/4 cup ten-grain cereal
2 tablespoons steel cut oats
2 tablespoons rye flakes
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons powdered caramel coloring -- (available from
King Arthur)
1/2 teaspoon diastatic malt powder -- (available from
King Arthur)
1 tablespoon vital wheat gluten
2 teaspoons yeast - (to 3 tspns)

Place ingredients in bread machine in order recommended by the
manufacturer. I use my machine to make dough and bake it in the oven
because you get a much better crust. To get a shiny crust, I make a wash
of malt syrup (honey would work just as well) and water to brush on just
before baking. A dough enhancer with diastatic malt powder and vital
wheat gluten can be substituted for them. I think that the Lora Brody
dough enhancer has both of them in it.

This recipe yields a 2 pound loaf.

Comments: I bought a loaf of Chart House Squaw Bread at Costco, took the
list of ingredients and after many loaves have come up with this recipe.
I bake my bread with sourdough instead of yeast but have converted the
recipe into one with yeast. I have halved the sugar measurements because
sourdough bread uses roughly twice the sugar to counteract the sourness
but you may have to play a little with the brown sugar if it is too sweet
or not sweet enough.
