I have been making bread 10 years now. I cannot find a bread as good as this in any store. I have tweaked this from so may other bread recipes that I have made. This one is my favorite and when I go a day or two without it I am not a happy camper so I try to keep it made and sliced ready to eat. Toasted with butter and your favorite topping is really the best way to eat this bread. Mine is whipped honey. I hope you can try it and that you enjoy. This bread takes the good part of a day because it is a multi-grain and slow to raise but it is SO worth the time.

How to Make MAMA'S WHOLE GRAIN BREAD

Step-by-Step

  1. Place 2 cups hot water in a mixing bowl. Do not use metal bowls for breads. I finger test my water, it should be hot enough that you can "just" hold your finger in and not feel like I need to pull it out. add to this the honey and margarine/butter. when margarine is melted add the yeast and let sit for 5 minutes to activate, or get all bubbly.
  2. Start adding all your other ingredient leaving the salt and bread flour for last.Add bread flour as needed to make a ball that you can knead without it sticking, about 10 minutes
  3. Grease a bowl, plop the dough in and then turn it to grease both sides. Cover and let raise in a warm place (I put mine in my oven under my oven light) for 1-2 hours till double in size. Cut in to two loaves and place in 2 greased, medium size bread pans. put in warm place. raise again for 1-2 hours and bake at 350 degrees for 27 minutes.
  4. Now I live in Colorado with some altitude so your raise times might be different, probably longer then mine.
