This wheat bread is made with a variety of grains, for an interesting texture and excellent flavor.

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 packages active dry yeast
  • 1 3/4 cup warm water
  • 2/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup whole bran cereal
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 1/2 to 4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour


Combine honey, molasses and yeast in the warm water. Cover and let stand until foamy, about 10 minutes. Stir in milk powder, beaten eggs, oil, and 2 teaspoons salt. Blend in the oats, wheat germ, and cereal. Beat in whole wheat flour and 1 cup of the all-purpose flour. Stir in enough all-purpose flour to make a somewhat stiff dough. Transfer dough to a floured surface; knead for about 8 minutes. Cover and let rise until double. Halve dough; let rest 10 minutes. Shape dough into 2 loaves. Place in 2 greased 8x4x2-inch loaf pans. Cover and let rise until nearly double. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes.

Bread flour instead of AP flour; Wheatena hot cereal for wheat germ; 1/8 C. Crisco; and 2 Tbls of wheat gluten were added. 2 packages of Rapid Rise yeast for a single rise after kneading and 10 min rest and shaping. The tops were brushed with melted butter from the oven.The hot liquids at 125 degrees were added to all the dry ingredients then mixed for 2 minutes at medium speed. After the eggs were added, it was mixed for 2 minutes at high speed. I used a stand mixer the a paddle blade mixing and the bread hook for a 5 minute knead. It was allowed to rise & bake with a pan of hot water in the oven.
