DIRECTIONS

  • In mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of the flour, yeast, oatmeal, wheat germ, bran cereal and salt. Mix well.
  • In saucepan, heat water, molasses and butter until warm (butter does not need to melt). Add this to the flour mixture.
  • Blend at low speed until moistened, beat 3 minutes at medium speed.
  • By hand, gradually stir in remaining flour to make a firm dough. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic (5 minutes or so).
  • Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover. Let rise in warm place until doubled (about 1 hour).
  • Punch down dough. Divide into two parts. On lightly floured surface, roll each half into roughly a 14" x 7" rectangle.
  • Starting with the shorter side, roll up tightly, pressing dough into roll with each turn. Pinch edges and ends to seal.
  • Place in greased 9" x 5" loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled (about 1 hour).
  • Bake in an oven preheated to 375 F for 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown and loaves sound hollow when tapped.
