Susie’s Multi-grain bread
J (Manna from above) J

12 oz non-fat milk
1 T. extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup orange blossom honey
1½ tsp. sea salt

Measure milk into a 2-cup glass-measuring cup, add next 3 ingredients.
Heat in microwave until just warm.

1¼ cups unbleached bread flour
2½ cups whole wheat flour
¾ cups 9-grain cereal
2 T. course wheat bran
2 T. raw wheat germ
2 T. vital gluten
2 T. brewers yeast
1 T. dough enhancer
Blend these ingredients in a bowl.

1 T. yeast

Put warm liquids into bread machine.
Add dry ingredients.
Add yeast.

Select basic/white cycle with light or medium crust.
Remove baked bread from pan and cool on a wire rack.

This multipurpose bread is very heavy and moist – it needs no butter although it is heavenly with butter! I created this recipe about 7 yrs ago when my husband and I were beginning another one of our diets (UGH!) and trying to eat healthy whole foods but I was looking for bread with higher protein. Well, needless to say I didn’t find one that satisfied my particular search so I grabbed a pencil, sat down and prayed for inspiration and that’s’ how I created this one – we were both really pleased with the results and hope you will enjoy it as well.
