  • ⅓ cup of prune plum filling
  • ⅓ cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. of molasses
  • 1 Tbsp. of honey
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup of pecan meal
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups of bread flour
  • ¼ cup of warm water, at the temperature of 105° to 110°F
  • 8 tsp of Vital Wheat Gluten
  • 1 tsp of Kosher salt
  • 1 ½ tsp of ground cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup of canned pumpkin 
  • 2-3 Tbsp. of melted butter

Fruit & Nuts:

  • ¼ cup of golden raisins
  • ¼ cup of chopped dried apricots
  • ¼ cup of dried cherries
  • ¼ cup of chopped dried apples (not apple chips)
  • 1 cup of chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup of cranberries
  • ¼ cup of dark raisins

How to Make Wheat Germ Publix Step by Step:

Step 1: First of all, you need to gather up all the dry fruits: raisins, apricots, cerries, apples, walnuts, cranberries in to a bowl. Then, soak them in hot water for 15 minutes to 20 minutes. This is a vital step. If you don’t do so, the dry fruits will absorb all the moisture from the yeast publix bread, leaving it completely dry. 

Step 2: Take out a large mixing bowl, and dissolve 1 tbsp. of active dry yeast with ¼ cup of warm water. 

Step 3: In another mixing bowl, sieve 2 cups of all-purpose flour and 2 cups of bread flour. Stir to combine and set aside. 

Step 4: Bring a small saucepan over low heat, and melt 5 tbsp. of butter. When butter is completely melted, remove from heat and pour ¾ cup of milk. Now, add the milk-butter mixture to the yeast mixture. 

Step 5: In that bowl, one by one, add 1/3 cup of canned pumpkin, 1/3 cup of prune plum filling, 1/3 cup of granulated sugar, 1 tbsp. of molasses, 1 tsp of kosher salt, 1 tbsp of honey, 1 ½ tso of ground cinnamon, ¼ cups of pecan meal, 2 large eggs, and 8 tsp of white gluten. Mix them finely with a whisk until completely combined. 

Step 6: Sprinkle 3 cups of prepared flour mixture or whole 4 cups to form in a workable soft moist dough. The dough shouldn’t be too sticky. 

Step 7: Time for kneading! Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough using hands until smooth and completely elastic. This won’t take more than 10 minutes. 

Step 8: Grease a bowl with oil and place the dough in the bowl. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until the dough become double. 

Step 9: By this time, drain the fruit off, pat them dry with a towel and set aside. Then grease two loaf pans (9″x 5″x 3″).

Step 10: Divide the dough in half, placing on the lightly floured surface. Sprinkle half of the fruit mixture on each loaf and knead finely. 

Step 11: Shape the loaves and place them into the greased baking pan. Brush with melted butter, then cover again to rise for 1 hour. 

Step 12: Meanwhile, set the oven for preheating at the temperature of 375 degrees F. 

Step 13: After 1 hour, uncover and bake in the oven for 45 minutes. Insert an instant read candy thermometer. If it results 200 degrees F at the center then, the bread is done with fine aroma and light golden crust. 

Remove from the oven and let it cool in the wire rack.
