I have varied the following recipe to utilize 5, 7 and 10-grain cereals, substituting them for the rolled oats. I also substitute a cup of whole or cracked-wheat flour for a cup of the "additional" flour. I also sprinkle some multi-grain on the loaf tops before the rising stage in the loaf pans. The term Porridge Bread comes from the fact that the cereal is softened in hot water. This is really an Oat Bread. This old recipe is in the narrative style.
