This dough freezes well for future use.


1/3 cup lukewarm water

1/4 cup apple sauce

1 egg

1/3cup seven grain cereal

2 teaspoons gluten flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

2/3 cup bread flour approximately

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon active dry yeast

1/4 teaspoons salt


Pre heat oven to 350 F

In a small bowl, combine water, honey, and yeast. Let rest for 5 min. or until yeast is bubbly.

In a large bowl mix together the salt, seven grain cereal, gluten flour, whole wheat flour, and bread flour. Mix the yeast mixture into the dry ingredients. Once combined add the egg and apple sauce. Stir until the dough starts to leave the sides of the bowl and form a ball. You may have to add more flour or water a little at a time. Dough should be soft but firm enough to knead.

Turn out the dough to a lightly greased surface. Lightly oil your hands, and knead it for 6 to 8 min., or until it begins to become smooth and supple. If you are adding raisins to your dough add them during the last minute of kneading.

Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a warm damp cloth. Allow the dough to rise about 1 hour. Dough should be close to double in size. I place bread dough on top of my stove where it will stay warm. This decreases the proofing time.

Punch down the dough and shape it into an 8" log. Place the dough into a lightly oiled 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan; cover the pan loosely with lightly oiled plastic wrap. Let the bread to rise for about 1 hour more.  It will be ready to bake when it is about 1" above the rim of the pan.

Place the bread into the oven. Bake the Seven Grain Bread for 30 to 35 minutes. The bread will sound hollow when tapped when it is ready.

Remove the loaf of Seven Grain Bread from the oven, and turn it out of the pan onto a cooling rack or clean dry cloth. If you would like a softer crust rub the top of the loaf with butter while still hot.

Let cool completely before slicing.

To bake the the frozen loaves remove from the freezer. Place onto a baking sheet. Cover with a warm damp cloth and allow to thaw for 1 hour. Then bake as per instructions.
