DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolve yeast in warm water. Pour boiling water over cornmeal and oatmeal; let stand until cool.
  • Add honey, butter and salt to yeast mixture. Stir in bran, then whole wheat flour.
  • Add cooled cereal mixture, then add unbleached flour a cup at a time until mixture is stiff enough to knead.
  • Knead 10 to 20 minutes. Let rise 2 hours, then punch out air and shape into four loaves; place loaves onto two lightly greased and floured cookie sheets.
  • Let rise 1 hour, then bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. When done, loaves should sound hollow when tapped. Be careful not to underbake the moist, heavy loaf.
  • NOTE: Time does not include 3 hour rise time.
  • Makes 4 loaves.
