While I will eat whole wheat bread and multi-grain breads, they aren’t my favorite. However, I can totally see myself eating a loaf of the 9 grain bread each week! It was great toasted with butter or jam and it was hearty enough to hold a sandwich.

  1. Instructions
  2. In a small bowl combine the warm milk, yeast, and chopped butter. Allow to sit for 5 minutes or until the yeast begins to foam and the butter is melting.
  3. In a large bowl combine the 9 grain flour and salt. Add the warm milk mixture to the flour, along with the honey, and mix until just combined.
  4. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5-7 minutes or until the dough and smooth and elastic.
  5. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough inside, and cover with a kitchen towel. Allow to rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
  6. Once the dough has doubled turn it out onto a table. Shape into a large rectangle. Starting at one end, roll the dough up. Pinch the seam closed and place seam side down in a greased loaf pan.
  7. Cover the loaf pan with plastic wrap and then a kitchen towel. Allow the bread to rise for 1 hour.
  8. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Once it is heated place the bread in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until the loaf is golden brown.
  9. Immediately remove the loaf from the pan and cool on a wire rack.
