I made this yesterday evening in my bread machine and we just enjoyed it for breakfast. This was a light, juicy bread which was great. My husband had it with cream cheese and chives but i liked it with butter and slices of cucumber. The wheat germ really makes a difference in all baking, i look forward exploring this wonderful ingrediant! Thank you, you brightened up our day.

I was going to add my new favorite wheat bread recipe to this site, but found this one - which is nearly identical. I've made this bread 3 times now and have fallen totally in love. The bread rises high, is light and the texture is just ever so slightly dense (all at the same time!) (Sometimes you don't want the 80lb slice of whole wheat bread....) This bread slices perfectly for sandwiches and keeps several days without problem. I make mine in a rectangular bread machine and have found the following adjustments are perfect for me. 3/4 tsp salt, 1 C Water 2 Tbl, 2 tsp yeast, 2 1/2 Tbl oil, 2 1/2 tbl honey 1 Tbl vital wheat gluten. (I add 1 TBL gluten for each C of Wheat Flour in all my bread recipes....) and the balance of ingredients as is. Ever so slight adjustments, but this is what has worked perfect for me 3 times!!!

Definite keeper! I did a 1.5-lb dough cycle in my bread machine, using canola oil instead of veg oil. I used my own homemade bread flour (vital wheat gluten AP flour) with regular sesame seeds and toasted wheat germ which added a nice dimension to the bread. Didn't do a second rise, just extracted the dough from the machine and shaped it into a nice big loaf on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper. Then I glazed the top with beaten egg and more sesame seeds, did just great for 30 minutes at 375. Will be making over and over again!!
