Wholewheat Bake (recipe)

Wholewheat Bake

This post was originally published on October 13, 2006. It has been updated twice since then.

Bake is a popular breakfast bread here in Trinidad. Hearty by nature, its heavy crumb keeps you feeling satisfied for hours. Especially when taken with a savory topping. My version here, raises the fiber content through a healthy dose of wholewheat flour. Be sure to pay attention to the resting time and icy water, it’s necessary for tender ‘non-brick’ results :)

Wholewheat Bake

Ingredients:
1 cup white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 oz butter (or margarine)
1 1/2 oz vegetable shortening
1 cup ice cold water


Method:

1. Sift flour with the baking powder and salt

2. Rub in the fats
3. Slowly add the water to make a smooth dough (dough will be sticky at this point)
4. Begin to incorporate enough wholewheat flour to make a smooth, dry, but elastic dough. Knead well.
5. Shape the dough into a bowl and allow to rest for 60 minutes
6. Preheat oven to 400F
7. After 1 hour, place dough onto floured board
8. Roll to a thickness of 3/4″ to 1″

9. Place dough onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes
10. Serve hot, cut into wedges.

makes 4 – 6 slices

    Hi Marsha :D Yes the second post is always pulled ‘From The Archive’ .. i.e. a post that is at least 2 months old… it’s a good way to bring old posts back to attention. It’s a PHP script for the WordPress blogging platform :)

    Hi Marsha, I went to Trinidad on vacation and ate bake fior breakfast which was simply out of this world. However, it was not baked in an over but in a dutch oven and I would love to have the recipe to show my family here in Georgia, USA, what they are missing. Would you please send the recipe to me? Also, there were some fried bakes which were smaller and quite nice.

    Thank you for granting me this wish.
