Making Bread with Soy Flour

The next few posts are going to be dedicated to soy flour breads. Soy flour is very low in carbohydrates and higher in protein than other flours. To begin, I am going to be using vital wheat gluten and eggs but little by little I will start experimenting without these two ingredients to make the recipes vegan and/or gluten-free. The first bread recipe I want to share with you is this delicious low-carb yeasted soy bread. It is fluffy and moist, and high in protein.
Enjoy :-D!

Yeasted Soy Bread

by Ruth Reynoso-Sance
Prep Time: 20 minutes+ 1 hour rising
Cook Time: 20-25 minutes

Ingredients (6 slices)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast ( I used Hodgson Mill Fast Rise)
  • 1/2 cup warm water (105-115 degrees F)
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup organic soy flour
  • 2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
In a small bowl combine the water, sugar and yeast.
Let it rest for a few minutes, until foamy.
In the bowl of a stand-mixer or a medium bowl, beat the eggs until well mixed.
Add the yeast mixture.
In a separate bowl, sift the salt, soy flour and vital wheat gluten flour together.
Incorporate the dry ingredients into the liquids and beat on medium speed for 1 minute.
The batter will be thick.
Scrape the sides of the bowl and cover with a towel or plastic wrap.
Let the batter rest for 45 minutes.
Grease a small loaf pan.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Pour the batter into the pan and cover.
Let it rest for 15 minutes.
Bake for 22-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Now, how many of you have experimented baking whole grain breads to find out they don't rise as regular white wheat flour breads? Well, this is my way of faking a high loaf with the power of a knife:

Cut the loaf in half, then cut each half vertically into three slices, and there you have it! A regular sized slice of whole grain bread.

Who wants a sandwich?!!
