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.
Tried this recipe today for the first time but cut it in half. I used butter in place of margarine and added about 1/4 cup of molasses because I like that in my bread. I had some cracked wheat and a bit of Scotch oats so used that for 1 cup of the flour. Then I used various amounts of BFB, WW, & WWW flours. Tossed it all in my Kitchen Aid (dried first and mixed up), and then all the wet before I realized I should have added the wet in steps. However, it didn't do any damage. I let my KA run until all the dough was well-kneaded and when I put it on a floured board, I hardly needed any flour at all for the little hand kneading I did. I made 3 round loaves and cut Xs on the top. Turned out great. I have just tasted one little slice so far - but it was very good. I always slice my bread and freeze it and then thaw and use when I want to eat it. I am all for brown breads and my husband is a Wonder Bread person so the freeze/thaw method works best for me. I will be making this again.
