Copycat Dave's Killer Bread recipe made at home from scratch!If ever there was a recipe that had me skipping around my kitchen in excitement, this is the one!   A Copycat of Dave’s Killer Bread!!  Eeee! We’ve made a lot of bread in this house.  Our Vietnamese Baguette is one of my go-to’s for sandwiches and appetizers and Dan’s Como Bread has been one of our standard daily favorites.  But ever since I became pregnant, I’ve been hyper aware of what I’ve been eating.  I’ve taken the “eating for two” to mean eating enough proper nutrients for me and my little one, without eating too many calories.   That means, whatever I eat, I need to make sure I’m getting more bang for my buck, so to speak.  Like eggs that are organic and omega 3 enriched vs. normal eggs.  And as much as we love our Homemade Sourdough bread, there isn’t a ton of nutritional ‘bang’ to it.  Copycat Dave's Killer Bread recipe made at home from scratch!So I’ve switched to Dave’s Killer Bread for my daily toast and eggs and sandwiches.  Even though it’s delicious bread, it’s still a little bit sad to me, not only because it’s not made From Scratch by us, but also that it’s $5 a loaf.  But oh… oh now, I’ve finally figured out an alternative!  Hence the skipping.Copycat Dave's Killer Bread recipe made at home from scratch!Even better, the recipe was a lot easier than I thought it’d be!  First, it was just a mix of yeast, water, coconut oil, molasses, and honey (Wessels is my favorite local honey).Copycat Dave's Killer Bread recipe made at home from scratch!Then it’s adding all the healthy deliciousness.  I actually didn’t end up adding the quinoa.  Why not?  Preggo brain, that’s why.  Totally forgot it.  Copycat Dave's Killer Bread recipe made at home from scratch!In true Dave’s Killer Bread fashion, this bread is hearty and dense.  That’s mainly because of the whole wheat flour.  But again, with the ‘more bang for the buck’ mentality, I added a bunch of other flours too.  Kamut flour and spelt flour are ancient grain flours that add great flavor and even more healthy grain goodness! Copycat Dave's Killer Bread recipe made at home from scratch!A yeasty bowl of grains and nut goodness and a bowl of mixed healthy grain flours.  Aw yea.Copycat Dave's Killer Bread recipe made at home from scratch!Mixed together into a dense dough of healthy grainy-nutty-goodness.Copycat Dave's Killer Bread recipe made at home from scratch!3 rises and 2 punch downs…Copycat Dave's Killer Bread recipe made at home from scratch!…then into a couple of greased bread pans. Copycat Dave's Killer Bread recipe made at home from scratch!Baked for 30 minutes at 425 degrees and we had a couple of beautiful loaves!Copycat Dave's Killer Bread recipe made at home from scratch!Sliced thin and It. Is. Amazing.  Copycat Dave's Killer Bread recipe made at home from scratch!Seriously, do you see all the seeded whole grain goodness in there?! Copycat Dave's Killer Bread recipe made at home from scratch!And it toasts up beautifully.  Like I said, it’s dense, but it makes the perfect toast base for Perfect Soft Scrambled eggs, or any other way you like your eggs.

 Copycat Dave's Killer Bread nutrition  

 Then, thanks to Calorie Count I can see exactly how nutritional my copy cat is!  Sliced nice and thin (I got about 15 thin slices from a loaf), and no, it’s not as nutritious Dave’s 21 Whole Grains and Seeds, but it’s getting there.  Stay tuned, I’m going to play around with this recipe some more to get it as close as I can!  😀

Ingredients
  1. 5 cups whole wheat flour
  2. 1/3 cup spelt flour
  3. 1/3 cup rye flour
  4. 1/3 cup kamut flour
  5. 2 tablespoons yeast
  6. 2 1/4 cups of warm water
  7. 1/2 tablespoon salt
  8. 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  9. 3 tablespoons honey
  10. 1 tablespoon molasses
  11. 1/4 cup flax seed
  12. 1/4 cup unsalted pumpkin seeds
  13. 1/4 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
  14. 1/4 cup rolled oats
  15. 1/4 cup raw unhulled sesame seeds
  16. 1/8 cup chia seeds
  17. Olive oil for coating
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, add water and sprinkle yeast on top and let sit for 3-5 minutes (this can all be done in a Kitchen Aid too). Whisk in molasses, honey, and coconut oil.
  2. Add the flax seed, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, oats, sesame seeds, and chia seeds and mix.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together the whole wheat flour, rye flour, spelt flour, kamut flour, and salt.
  4. Slowly add the the flour to the wet mixture and mix well either by hand or in your mixer until all the flour is incorporated.
  5. On a generously floured surface, knead dough for about 3-5 minutes. The dough will be slightly sticky.
  6. In another large bowl (or the same bowl washed), oil the bowl lightly with olive oil and then add dough. Cover with a cotton kitchen towel or napkin. Let dough rise, about an hour.
  7. Once dough has almost doubled, punch it down and let it rise again, approximately another hour.
  8. When it has doubled again, lightly oil two bread pans and pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
  9. Remove dough from bowl and separate in half. Shape and add to dough pans and cover lightly with towel or napkin and let rise for another 30 minutes.
  10. Remove covers and bake for 30 minutes.
  11. Remove from oven and cool on wire racks.
Notes
  1. Loaves are done when you tap the bottom and it sounds hollow
