I've been making this recipe regularly & my loaves turn out perfect everytime, and oh is it ever delicious.
Multi-grain bread - 2 lb loaf
*Add the ingredients below strictly in the order listed
*Before adding yeast, make a little hole in the flour with your finger, & put the yeast in it. This is because you never want the yeast to come in contact with the salt or the salt will kill the yeast.
*When measuring the flour, scoop flour into the measuring cup as you will get a more accurate meaure, never scoop measure directly into the flour.
* I also use room temperature water, don't know why, just do.
1 cup + 2 tbsp Water
1 1/2 tbsp Earth Balance Margarine (I cut it into a few pieces)
1 1/2 tsp Salt
3 tbsp Agave nectar
1 1/2 cups All purpose Best For Bread Flour
1 1/2 cups Whole Grain, Stone Ground Spelt Flour ( you could use Stone Ground Whole Wheat if you like)
3/4 cup 7-12 Grain Cereal (Lately I've been using Bob's Red Mill 7 Grain cereal)
1 1/2 tsp Quick Rise Yeast
I set my breadmaker to whole wheat, medium crust setting.
*During the second kneeding of the dough, your machine will probably beep...at this point, you are free to improvise & add some enhancements to your loaf. sometimes I'll add a mixture of raisins, hemp seeds or sunflour seeds. You may have to pull the dough out to help mix these ingredients into the dough.
If you try it, I hope it works out for you. Have fun!
