      This makes the most amazing bread! I have modified the recipe to use olive oil instead of butter, omit the sunflower seeds, and use my stand mixer with dough hook. I found I needed a bit more flour because the dough was too soft; knead with the dough hook until dough leaves the sides of the bowl, about 6-10 min. Let rise in a bowl sprayed with Pam, covered about 45 min. Deflate and form in a loaf and let rise, covered for another 45 min. Bake 40-45 min. @ 350, tenting with foil after 20 min. to prevent over-browning. Delish! p.s. Buy the cracked wheat from

      This recipe is great! I made it twice--the first time with sunflower seeds as mini loaves and the second time without as a regular loaf. I preferred it without the sunflower seeds. I also prefer to use the bread machine on the dough cycle and then make the bread in a bread pan in the oven because I don't like the shape of bread machine dough, but that's just my preference. If you want to do that--the recipe makes 5 mini loaves (350 degrees for 20 minutes) or 1 big loaf (350 degrees for 45 minutes). I live at a high altitude, over 7,000 feet, and this recipe turned out great!
