“I love this whole-grain bread because it makes a pretty loaf with a great texture," says Carol Forcum of Marion, Illinois. "It's not at all heavy…in spite of the whole-wheat flour and wheat germ.”

"to Ginny 3235, I make this recipe in a bread machine and it works very well. Just add the ingredients in the order given. However, I use the dough setting, then let it rise again in the loaf pan before baking. I use a pan because I prefer the bread shape over my machine that makes a square loaf."

"bread machine recipe: place in bread machine in this order: 1 cup water, 1/2 cup plain yogart, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp salt, 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ, 2 cups bread flour, make a well in the middle of the flour and place 2 tsp yeast in it. Place on dough setting. Place in loaf pan and bake at 375^ 35-40 minutes. You can convert most any bread recipe. Add wet ingredients first, then dry, yeast last. Most bread machines hold at least 3 cups of flour some 4 1/2 cups."

"Have not tried it because of arthritis, I can no longer knead the dough. I, too, would like a breadmaker version. How about it?"

"This is my recipe and I like using bread flour but have made it many times with just plain old all- purpose flour and it turns out fine. As for the bread machine question.........dunno. At this house I am the bread machine. I have never used one but I don't see why you couldn't use a machine. There is the right amount of flour (so as to not overload) and there is nothing special about the mixing. I'd give it a try if I had a bread machine."
