READY IN: 15mins
YIELD: 4-5 loaves




  • Mix together cereal and boiling water. Cover and set aside for 45 minutes. Add shortening and stir until shortening is melted.
  • Add cereal mix to mixing bowl, add flour, gluten flour, salt, brown sugar and yeast.
  • Add milk to measuring cup and add hot water.
  • Add milk mixture to flour mixture, turn mixer on to stir until most of the flour is incorporated. Turn to speed 2 and knead, adding more water to make a slightly sticky dough. Knead at least 2 minutes.
  • Turn dough into a large oil-greased bowl and cover with plastic. Let rise for about 1 hour or until double in size, maybe longer.
  • Punch down. Grease 4-5 loaf pans (8x4") with shortening, set aside.
  • Weight dough and divide by 4 and 5 so see which on is closer to 500 grams. Scale dough to even amounts. Shape into loaves and place into greased pans. Cover with plastic again and let rise for 1 hour or until double. The dough should rise to the top of the pan.
  • Bake at 400 F for 15 minutes. Bread is done when it is golden and the bottom sounds hollow when tapped.
  • Note: If you forget to add the shortening to the cereal mix, just melt it in the microwave and add after the milk.
