A healthy loaf of bread. The original recipe for this whole grain bread dates back to the early immigrants from Scotland. This makes a 2 pound loaf. The recipe comes from redstaryeast.com.

I thought this bread was great. It didn't taste wheaty/healthy and was wonderfully hearty but moist with a really nice flavor. I will have to use 3/4 of the recipe next time it was too much for my bread machine. Thanks so much for the recipe I will use it often.
