Whole Wheat Mini Bread

I'm making Bento (Boxed Meal) lately that's why I made bite size kind of bread to fit in my lunch box. I used my cookie cutter to shape the dough. I also used my hook mixer to do all the kneading. The bread is hard but chewy, sort of pizza bread the way I like it and a little bit sweet since I added cake flour. I think, I'll make this kind again and again.

Ingredients:


1/4 cup warm water (or more)
2 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups wheat flour
1/2 cup cake flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
 
In a mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients together. Knead to smooth the dough for 5 minutes or more until the dough comes to together into a dough hook. Place in a bowl, dust with flour (not to stick) cover with plastic until it double its size. Let it set in a warm place.
 
Punch down to remove air.  Knead in a work surface, seam underside until the top surface is smooth. Cover a plastic not to dry out. Let it rise for an hour or more again to double its size.
 
Get a handful to form a loaf shape or using a cookie cutter.  Place in a parchment cookie sheet. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes in a preheated oven for 210°C (about 410°F).

Enjoy! Happy Monday!
Many, many thanks My Meatless Monday

I love love LOVE the idea of using a cookie cutter (especially a heart shaped one) to make little lunch sized loafs. What a WONDERFUL idea - one I can't wait to try!!!
