I modified my grandmother's bran bread recipe and got this one. I was out of bran, so tried frosted wheat cereal. The results were great!

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl, combine cereal, brown sugar, shortening and salt. Pour boiling mixture over mixture. Let cool to room temperature.

  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

  • Combine cereal and yeast mixtures. Add eggs and two cups flour; mix well. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.

  • Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

  • Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into two equal pieces and form into loaves. Place the loaves into two lightly greased 9x5 inch loaf pans. Cover the loaves with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake in preheated oven until brown, about 30 minutes. Remove from pans and let cool on a wire rack.

This bread is pretty good. I didn't have frosted wheat, so I used shredded wheat instead. I also put in more than 1 cup of shredded wheat. It does taste pretty healthy that way; I'm sure it would taste a lot sweeter with the frosted wheat. In my opinion, not as good plain as some other breads I've made. It's good for sandwiches except it crumbles a bit, so not for hefty sandwiches. Maybe for grilled cheese, actually. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was very good. It had a little sweetness from the cereal and it was dense and filling. It is so good in the toaster. I'll definitely make it again Read More
