This was my grandma's bread recipe. There were no amounts, only a list of ingredients. With much testing, I have come up with the recipe that tastes as close as I can get to her bread.

1 1/2 c
lukewarm water
1 1/2 Tbsp
olive oil
2 tsp
honey or white sugar
5 Tbsp
rye flour
4 Tbsp
graham flour
1 1/2 tsp
2 tsp
active dry yeast
2 Tbsp
instant mashed potato flakes
3 Tbsp
quaker old fashioned oats (not instant)
bread flour

Directions Step-By-Step

Add the wet ingredients to your bread machine (water, oil, honey). Next add the salt, potato flakes and oats.
Into a measuring cup, put the rye flour and graham flour. Add enough regular bread flour to make 3 1/2 cups. Pour this into the bread machine on top of the wet ingredients.
Make a "well" in the flour mixture and add the yeast. Use the "whole wheat" cycle on your machine, 2 pound loaf, dark crust. Turn the machine on and you will have a delicious loaf in a little over 3 hours. NOTE: WATCH THE CONSISTENCY of the mixture as it mixes. If it seems too dry, add one tablespoon of water at a time until the dough forms a "ball" around the paddle. If it is too wet, add one tablespoon of flour at a time.
