Whole Wheat Recipes ~ Chocolate Cake and French Bread!

One of my goals for 2012 (yes, I have many) is to eliminate my home of processed foods and do most, if not all, my baking at home. Although most my baked goods, such as cake, cookie, etc. are homemade made. But I'd like to strive to have everything not only homemade but also with REAL, unprocessed ingredients. No bleached flour in my I cupboard!

Yesterday I found (and made) a recipe for French Bread. The recipe is PERFECT. Perfect explanations, perfect tutorial pictures and perfect results so other than showing the ingredients that I changed, I'm sending you on to the blog in which I found the recipe. I know that I will be returning to Holy Cow! Vegan Recipes again to try more of her recipes! 

Whole-Wheat French Bread

3 cups of durum whole-wheat flour ->-> I used 5 cups organic, whole wheat flour

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

1 tbsp + 1 tsp vital wheat gluten
I skipped the gluten

(If you don't have vital wheat gluten, use 3 cups all-purpose and 2 cups whole-wheat flour and skip the gluten)

1 1/2 tbsp salt

2 cups of mildly warm water

2 1/2 tsp yeast
I started slicing the bread for dinner before remembering to take a picture! ;)

Today I'm making:

WHOLE WHEAT CHOCOLATE CAKE from 100 Days of Real Food

2 c. organic, whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup raw sugar
4 t. baking powder

1/2 c. cocoa powder

2 eggs
2 T. vanilla (pure, homemade)
1 1/2 c. water

Bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes.
