A delicious and wholesome bread. I buy the 7-grain cereal in the bulk section of the supermarket.

This recipe is wonderful. I let my bread machine do the work thru the second rise then formed a loaf and baked it for 40 minutes at 375 degrees in my oven. The texture and taste are excellent. My family couldn't stop eating it..... Read More

Nice light texture subtle wholegrain taste and all natural wholesome ingredients. This bread tasted good but was a little dry sliced and used for sandwiches (it broke apart when holding the sandwich) but was great for toasting. I have a 2 lb. loaf machine and my bread overflowed the machine bucket and pressed up into the lid. Next time I will cut the ingredients by 1/4 and hope to get a full loaf without overflowing or I'll just cut the recipe in half for a small-medium loaf. The recipe doesn't note if the grain-cereal is hot (like oatmeal) or cold (not sure what this would be) so I used a 5 grain blend like oatmeal. When making bread it is important to use fresh (not expired) ingredients that were kept properly for success. Read More

This will definitely be a staple at my house! I made it without a bread machine so I was guessing at some of the process but it turned out great. I proofed the yeast with the honey and water mixed everything but the flours and cereal together and added that to the yeast then added the whole wheat flour half the white flour and the cereal (I used Bob's Red Mill 8 Grain). I added the rest of the white flour until the dough wasn't sticky (and I actually had to use about 1/2 cup more). I boiled some water in a kettle and then put the dough in a cold oven with the open kettle to rise since the warmth and humidity seems to make dough rise perfectly. Then I punched it down shaped it into two 1-pound loaves and let it rise again. I cooked it at 375 for about 20 minutes and had two perfect beautiful soft and delicious loaves. Thank you so much for the recipe! Read More

This bread is awesome! I love the texture and taste. I will make this again but will have to scale the recipe by half so it doesn't overflow in my 1.5# bread machine. It took a total of 4 hours 10 minutes in my machine but was well worth the wait. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Wonderful bread. I used Kashi 7 grain and brown sugar splenda as a substitute for the honey, and all whole wheat flour, no bread flour. Baked at 375* for 30 min. covered with foil an additional 10 min, for a total of 40 min. I also buttered the crust after baking to keep it soft...wonderful recipe...thank you for a healthy bread I am happy to give my family. Read More

Thi is an exceptionally good recipe that makes wonderful bread and rolls. To make dinner rolls I used the dough cycle in my bread machine then baked the rolls on a pizza stone at 350. I have served these rolls at two dinner parties and all of my guests were astonished have begged for the recipe. Read More
