Multigrain Bread Recipe

Multigrain Bread Recipe

It's hard to get a good whole-grain bread where I live, so my bread machine comes in very handy when making this hearty loaf. I adapted it from an old recipe, and I've been enjoying it ever since. Cornmeal and wheat germ give it a wonderful texture and nutty flavor I love. -Michele MacKinlay, Madoc, Ontario

"This is like a bread machine recipe that i make all the time. I use fine ground corn meal and leave out wheat germ. Whole white wheat works nice for whole grain wheat."

"Nice flavor and texture - fragrance and mouth feel remind me of a lighter version of Boston brown bread (due to the molasses and cornmeal). Hearty but not heavy. I made this by hand rather than use a machine and baked it in a 9x5 inch pan, came out great. Takes a while to rise but be patient, it's worth the wait!"

"I'd like to make the multigrain bread, but the recipe calls for a bread machine and I do not own one. Do I go ahead and make it like I would my basic white bread?"
