Multigrain Bread for Bread Machine

I have been wanting to get my bread machine out.  I know, who even has those anymore?  Well I grabbed one from my parents house a few months ago.  The kids do love homemade bread, so I try and make some every so often.

I found some whole wheat flour at a really good price at Trader Joes and wanted to try a whole wheat bread.  I started surfing and found a Multigrain bread, I had all the ingredients, so thought I would give it a try.

Here is everything you will need to make 1 1/2 lb loaf of bread:

1 1/4 c. of water
2 Tbsp. Butter
1 1/3 c. Better for Bread flour
1 1.3 c. Whole Wheat flour
1 c. 7 -grain or Muligrain hot cereal (uncooked)
3 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
1 1/4 tsp. salt
2 1/2 tsp. yeast

Put all ingredients in the order your bread machine recommends. (For the life of me I can’t figure out where I found this recipe.)

The finished product was pretty good.  It was a heavy bread for sure.  By day 2 it was a crumbly mess.  I guess if you eat it right away that would be best.

Will I make it again?  Well, I won’t toss it, but will try for a better one.  Loved that fact that it was mulitgrain and I could do that with cereal instead of adding each ingredient at a time.  (Yes, I am lazy!)

By the way yes, that is a huge package of yeast from Costco. It cost just $3.75.  Can’t touch that price at any store.  Even with coupons, I have not found a great deal.  I am going to store it in the freezer.

So I am looking for suggestions.  What whole wheat or mulitgrain bread have you made?  You can leave a link in comments if you would like.

  1. It’s always great to read recipes for bread machines. We love ours but we use it to make pizza dough and naan bread dough more than bread! I need some new recipes to try – maybe I need to experiment or just get a new recipe book.

    Have a lovely weekend,

  2. Naan bread? I NEED that recipe.

  3. I have used 3 bread machines until they died over my 15 years of homemaking but only for dough. I really don’t like the texture of the bread baked in the machine. We prefer making whole wheat dough, taking it out, making it into a round and baking it on a stone in the oven. Much better product in my opinion 🙂

    Here is a simple recipe that I like
    2 Tbsp oil
    1/4 cup molasses
    1 1/4 cup buttermilk Or milk and lemon juice
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp salt
    3 cups whole wheat flour
    1 Tbsp yeast

    Put it in the machine, hit dough, take out, form into a loaf. Let rise again for 30-45 minutes and then bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

    Nice dark bread. Perfect for soup and chili

  4. Thank you so much. I am going to grab some molasses and give this one a try.

  5. I have been using my bread machine to make dough for a variety of things – bread, rolls, hamburger buns. Soft pretzels are next on my list. I have had great success with the recipes at King Arthur Flour (www.kingarthurflour.com). I also enjoy their blog and have learned quite a bit about baking just reading the comments in the blog.
