Whole Grain Bread

whole grain bread

It’s been a while since I’ve made loaf bread. I’ve been focusing on baguettes because somehow it seems easier. This was a successful attempt. Nice rise. Tasty. I think with this oven I’ll cook it probably 5-10 minutes longer next time, but it was still a great loaf. The little dude was obsessed. He would hardly eat anything else for meals until it was gone! Weird? All he wanted was “toast”. I had to really push other sides. I guess I should take that as a compliment? 🙂

Whole Grain Bread
  • 3 cups white unbleached flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ⅓ cup flax meal
  • ⅓ cup wheat germ
  • ⅓ cup mixed seeds
  • 1 TB oil
  • 1¾ cup warm water
  • 2 TB honey
  • 2 tsp yeast
  • 2 tsp salt
  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Add water, yeast, and honey to mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Add all other ingredients. Mix and knead for 5 minutes. Allow to rise for 1 hour. Dump/scrape into lightly oiled bread pan. Allow to rise until at least at the top of the pan. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for another 35 minutes.
