BEST: Hayden Whole Wheat Single Rise Bread
Number of Servings: 8
Added By: Hayden
My Yacht Name: Island Spirit
Yacht Manufacturer: Island Packet Yachts
Ingredients: In a large bowl 2 packs of rapid rise yeast (Note: a pack of yeast is 1/4 oz or it measures 2 1/4 teaspoons) 3 Tbs sugar 1 Tbs salt 3/4 cup oatmeal 3 cups of whole wheat flour (or use regular flour) 3 cups of bread flour Mix dry ingredients very well Water & Oil 2 1/4+ cups water at 120 degrees 5 Tbl oil Mix water and oil together, then add to dry
Directions: 1. Mix dry ingredients well, mix a lot 2. Pour mixed water/oil into dry 3. Knead until well mixed 4. Add flour to kneading until not sticky 5. Let dough rest 15 min, this allows yeast to kick off 6. Prepare 2 bread pans, spray with Pam 7. Remove dough ball, cut in half 8. Knead each half into loaf shapes 9. Place in bread pans 10. Let rise 60 minutes, (being only 3 cups of flour per loaf, these will just rise over the top of the pan) 11. Bake 20-25 min at 350-375 until light brown on top. (I bake 15 minuets then turn them for even heat) 12. Turn out, cut in half to check center is fully cooked, if not return to oven. 13. When finished.....try NOT to eat half a loaf :-) Note: Turn bread pans at midway baking time for more even baking
Comments: We have been making this bread for many years now. We no longer buy bread, this is just way too good! This has been nicknamed; "HAYDEN BREAD"

Dump in a large greased bowl, oil the top, cover with a towel and let rise until double in bulk. Beat down and shape into two oblong loaves about 14" long. Place on a greased baking sheet and let rise until double. Beat 1 egg white frothy and brush the tops of the loaves. With a razor make 3 slashed across tops. Bake at 425 deg for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 deg and bake 20 minutes more until well browned. Break bread away from pans to cool.
Comments: Our daughter made this version of French bread when we couldn't get the real thing. It was every bit as tasty as that you can buy on the French islands of the Caribbean and much better than you get on the English island. It really wasn't as hard as it sounds. Try it, you'll like it!

Comments: It is easier to call Pizza Hut but when you are in that remote anchorage and craving fresh pizza, this is the way to go. Add your favorite toppings. Yummy.
Pelagic Australis One Watch Bread
Number of Servings: more than 8
My Yacht Name: Eventually
Yacht Manufacturer: Island Packet
Ingredients: 2 cups fresh water 2 tsp. salt 1 packet (2 heaping tsp.) dry yeast 1/4 cup of either sugar, honey, molasses, maple syrup, or brown sugar 5 or 6 cups of any sort of flour Some olive oil or vegetable oil A bit of margarine or butter
Directions: Pour water into a large stainless steel bowl. If fresh water is scarce you can substitute for the f. water and salt with 2/3 cup salt water and 1 1/3 cups fresh water. Water should be between 90 -100°F (32 - 38°C), or comfortable on a bare wrist. Stir in salt, add yeast and stir until it dissolves. Add sugar and then flour. Stir the flour in with a wooden spoon until the mix is too stiff to handle, then coat your hands with olive oil or vegetable oil to prevent the dough from caking on them and start working the last cups of flour in with your hands. There is no exact measurement on the flour because humidity affects the amount you'll use. Keep adding flour until the dough feels smooth and consistent and doesn't stick to a clean finger when you press it firmly. Form dough into a ball in the middle of the bowl. Cover the bowl with a towel and put it in a warm, dry place to rise. The engine room after it has been running or warm place on the stove works well. You need a temperature between 80 - 100°F (27°C - 38°C) at this stage. If you are in a cool climate, turn the oven on for three minutes. Turn it off and then let the dough rise in the oven. At 30 minutes, check the dough. If it hasn't started growing, it is in too cool a place. If it's starting to get a crust, it's too warm. At 40-45 minutes, the dough should double in volume. When it has doubled in size, punch it down by hitting it with your fist four or five times and then put in bread pans greased with margarine or butter and let it rise again for another 40-45 minutes. Place bread pans in a cool oven. Turn the heat on to 350°F (180°C) and bake until the loaves are golden brown, or about 30-35 minutes. Turn the bread pans at least once during the process to assure an even brown color. Rap with a knuckle and if it sounds hollow it is done. Let bread cool in pans for 5-6 minutes, then remove it from the pan and rest it on its side or set the loaf on a cake rack so the steam escapes from the bottom. Wait at least 15 minutes to cut the loaves.
Comments: The basic recipe was from Lin Pardy. It was adapted for cold climates while on a voyage aboard Skip Novak's Pelagic Australis from Tierra del Fuego to the Antarctic Peninsular and Cape Horn
Dancing Babe Bread
Number of Servings: 4
My Yacht Name: Speranza
Yacht Manufacturer: Morgan 44
Ingredients: 3 cups flour 1 1/2 cups very warm water packet of dry yeast 1/2 tbsp. salt 2 tbsp. flax meal
Directions: Dancing Babe Bread - because you can do this while dancing around the boat. It's so easy, no kneading! Mix flour, salt and flax meal(optional) in a large mixing bowl. Add dry yeast to very warm water and dissolve. Create a dip in the flour and mix in the water with a spoon until you have a fairly sticky mass. Next comes the one time you may have to get one hand dirty - finish blending the ingredients with your hand until you have a fairly smooth dough. One minute tops! That's it. Cover the bowl with a clean, damp towel and find a place where your dough can rise draft-free for two to six hours. Add to a loaf pan. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes in a 450 degree oven, until crust is golden brown. If possible add a shallow dish of water on the very bottom of your oven to improve humidity. I just took a bread out of the oven to which I added 1 1/2 tbsp. of crushed rosemary instead of flax meal. Awesome. You could also substitute 1/2 cup of white flour with whole wheat flour. Let's go dancing!
Comments: This recipe originated from Andrea Livingston, Oxford NY. Who loves dancing. She gave it to Laurie from SV Kismet who gave it to me when I complained that there must be an easier way to make bread. Voila. Here it is.

Added By: Linda
My Yacht Name: Amekaya
Yacht Manufacturer: Island Packet
Ingredients: 1 1/2 tsps active dry yeast 2 Tbsps + 1 1/4 cups warm water 2 Tbsps honey 1 Tbsp oil 1/2 tsp salt 1 cup flaxseed meal 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 1/4 cup Teff flour 1/4 cup Quinoa flour 1 3/4 cup white flour
Directions: In a large bowl dissolve the yeast in 2 Tbsps of the water. Set aside for about 5 minutes or until bubbly. Mix in honey, oil, salt and remaining 1 1/4 cups water. Add flaxseed meal, whole wheat, teff and quinoa flours. Add 1 cup of the white flour. Stir in enough of the remaining 3/4 cup white flour to make a soft dough. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Coat a 9"x5" loaf pan with cooking spray. Shape the dough into a loaf and place in the pan Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about an hour. Bake at 350 for about 35-40 minutes, or until the loaf is browned on top and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from oven and let cool.
Comments: If you don't have Teff or Quinoa flour available other whole grains can be used or just substitute whole wheat flour. My boat oven quicks faster than any oven I've used on shore so make sure you check your bread at 30 - 35 minutes so not to overcook it.
