Three-Grain Wild Rice Bread

Wild rice really shines in this one-of-a-kind recipe. The first time I made this bread, I knew I'd found a new favorite. Everyone who has tried it since confirms that over and over again!
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 35 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    2 loaves (16 slices each)

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/3 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 cups warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup rye flour
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 to 4-1/2 cups bread or all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cooked wild rice, cooled to room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon cold water

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, whole wheat flour, rye flour, oats, honey, butter, salt and 2 cups bread flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in wild rice and enough remaining bread flour to form a stiff dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape into loaves. Transfer to two greased 9x5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Beat egg and cold water; brush over loaves. Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

    Has anyone tried making this in a bread machine? I have not tried this yet, because it is hard for me to do any kneading by hand due to a arm injury, but it sounds good.

    I have made this recipe several times now and it is definitely one of my favorites. And I bake bread at least once a week. Great for sandwiches, toast or just a slice of bread.

    I was just going to make this recipe AGAIN. My family and friends love it. It has become one of my bread recipes I make regularly.

    I HAVEN'T MADE THIS BREAD YET BUT I AM GOING TO. I JUST WONDERED IF THERE IS SOMETHING YOU CAN ADD TO GIVE IT MORE FIBER. IT SAYS IT ONLY HAS 2 GRAMS OF FIBER PER SLICE AND WITH ALL THAT GRAIN IN IT THERE SHOULD BE MORE THAN THAT. YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO EAT BREAD WITH AT LEAST 3 GMS OF FIBER. MAYBE YOU COULD ADD SOME GROUND FLAX SEED TO THE RECIPE. THIS RECIPE SOUNDS REALLY HEALTHY AND GOOD.
