This bread is great and I could not find it anywhere on the internet. I have two recipes; I will put the easiest recipe on. Please bear with me, I have not put a recipe on here before. My aunt made this every week. I could have lived on this when I was in Norway.
- 8 cups flour
- 3 cups coarse wheat flour (cracked wheat berries)
- 4 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 30 g yeast
- 30 g margarine
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups water
- Mix all dry ingredients together.
- In a bowl heat 1 1/2 c milk and 1 1/2 c water; add margarine till melted.
- Heat 1/2 c milk and 1/2 c water just till slightly warm then add yeast.
- Add wet ingredients to dry a little at a time; mix after each addition of wet ingredients.
- Flour table; place dough on flour and then knead for at least 10 minutes.
- Place dough in a large greased bowl and put in a warm place.

This is a very tasty bread with a nice chewy texture. Went great with soup. I cut recipe in thirds, but next time will make full recipe and freeze 2 loaves so I have some when I make soup during the winter! I used whole wheat flour and whole wheat bran. Couldn't find wheat berries, but will go looking for them next time. Made for Fall 2008 My-3-Chefs.
