homemade multigrain bread

I modified this from a recipe I found on the internet (didn't keep the link). Original did not use the sunflower or pumpkin seeds. I do not put the oats on the top. I think there is too much dough for 2 regular sized loaves, so I use 3- 4 1/2" x 8 1/2" pans.

How To Make homemade multigrain bread

  • Grain texture should be like this.
    If you don't use already ground grain mix, grind each grain to a coarse sand consistency. Combine all and mix well.
  • 2
    You can use a Kitchen-Aid with a dough hook, or mix and knead by hand.
  • 3
    In the bowl of your mixer, or a very large bowl, combine the boiling water, grain mix, butter, honey, salt, and seeds. Stir until it forms a thick paste. Let it cool completely, about 20 minutes.
  • 4
    Once cooled, stir in yeast and vital wheat gluten, if using. Let stand another 10 minutes.
  • Raised, ready to be made into loaves.
    Add the flour, one cup at a time, and knead until smooth, about 10 minutes. Cover with damp towel, set in warm place, and allow to rise until double, or about an hour.
  • Risen, ready to go into the oven
    Grease 2-3 loaf pans* and set aside. When dough has risen double, cut it in half (or thirds). Roll each piece into a loaf shape and place into the greased pans. Sprinkle oats on top and lightly press them into the dough, if desired. Cover with damp towel and allow to raise another hour. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • 7
    Place loaves in oven and bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown. When done, remove from oven and allow to cool on a rack for 5-10 minutes; cool completely before cutting.
