Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 Cup(s) Starter
1 1/2 Cup(s) Water
1/2 Cup(s) Oil
1/2 Cup(s) Sugar
12 Apricots, dried diced
1/4 Cup(s) Walnuts, coarsely chopped
2 Cup(s) Whole wheat flour
4 Cup(s) Bread flour, bromated
1 Teaspoon(s) Salt
Feed starter 1/2 C sugar, 1 C water and 1 T instant potato flakes once
aweek, stirring well. Let mixture sit in uncovered container all day
tofeed and grow. After 8 - 10 hours, remove 1 cup of starter to
bakebread; return remainder of starter to refrigerator in loosely
coveredcontainer.Combine starter, water, oil, sugar and apricots and
mix well. Addwalnuts and the whole wheat flour; blend together with a
whisk. Add 2cups of the bread flour and mix again.Add the last 2 cups
of the bread flour, combined with the salt, and mixagain.The dough will
be sticky and a little stiff. Put the dough in a greased(or sprayed
with Pam) bowl and cover with a damp cloth. Let rise untildoubled in
bulk.Punch down and divide into three equal pieces. Put each piece
into agreased loaf pan and let rise until they reach the tops of the
pans.Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes or until browned and pulling
awayfrom the sides of the pans.Cathe's notes: Was originally Dot
Howell's recipe. You can substitute white cornsyrup for part or all of
the oil; the bread might cook more quickly andbrown too soon if not
watched carefully. Can also substitute 1/4 Coatmeal for 1/4 C flour.
Daddy speeds up the process; he feeds the starter and then puts itinto
a hot water bath for about an hour. While the starter sits in itsbath,
he mixes his ingredients for the bread. He uses 1 cup of thestarter and
lets the remainder sit outside for several hours. He makeshis dough and
puts it in a hot water bath to rise. When he punches itdown, he puts
the pans over a hot water bath to rise. He accomplishesthe entire
process in one day instead of two days.From Gemini's MASSIVE MealMaster
