very good! I use olive oil, steel cut oats for the cracked wheat and whole wheat flour. It is now a staple in our home. I also use the wheat setting and light crust. Thanks for posting. It is easy and so good!

Easy recipe, proportions are correct. Just the right size for a large (2-lb.) machine. I varied the recipe by adding the following: 4 teaspoons of flour gluten, and I used 2 cups of unbleached flour and 1/2 cup of rye flour to produce a delicious light rye version. This recipe is becoming a classic in my family. I've passed it on to others who are also becoming fans.

This is a great recipe, the bread came out really good. As I try to avoid sugar I used honey instead and substituted 1 cup of the bread flour with whole wheat.

This is by far the BEST whole grain bread machine recipe I have found. It is soft, fluffy, delicious bread and very easy to make!

With the price of groceries going up and up I pulled out the bread machine. This recipe is a keeper. Its super easy to make, looks beautiful, and tastes awsome. I love all the whole grainsin it. I will definately make this loaf again and again.

Great bread recipe! Used olive oil as suggested and oatmeal for the cracked wheat. Great hit with soup at a party, even w/ the kids. Yum!

Wow. Even my Dad and brother loved this bread, who were the ones crinkling their noses at it while I was gathering the ingredients. I used whole oats instead of cracked wheat since I didn't feel like going out in the snowstorm. For the cereal, I used Kashi's 7-grain flakes. I used the 'wheat bread' setting, light crust, which took much longer than 2 1/4 hours but maybe that's just my machine? Tasted absolutely perfect with my homemade butternut squash soup.

This bread rose beautifully and was so light and fluffy inside yet delightfully crispy on the outside. I did make a few changes as mentioned by others - I used oats instead of cracked wheat, olive oil instead of canola and added a 5 seed mix with the flax seed. I also used 1/2of the sugar stated (personal choice, I always do that.) Iused wholewheat flour instead of bread flour too. I would however next time reduce the yeast to 1&1/2 tspns instead of 2tspns as it was a little too yeasty for us. But a wonderful bread!!! Many thanks Moe Heon!!!

I have made this bread several times because I love how nutritious it is. However, I always have to add a bit more flour to keep it from being too sticky and I always get a REALLY uncomfortably gritty and crunchy top crust. The other crusts are always fine. So I think it's due to the cracked wheat pieces. Next time I think I will try soaking the bulgur first. Thanx for a great recipe! =]

Oh my gosh, this was amazing. It's my new favorite homemade bread. I couldn't find cracked wheat, so I used old-fashioned oats instead. I set the bread machine to the basic setting/2 lb loaf/light crust. It was perfect! Thanks!
