Bake multigrain bread to get "that" scent in your kitchen.

This bread recipe uses hot breakfast cereal (a real time saver) and olive oil.

Multigrain bread with olive oil and honey

Multigrain bread

1 1/4 C multigrain hot cereal (6 1/4 oz)
2 1/2 C boiling water
1 1/2 C all-purpose flour
1 1/2 C white whole wheat flour
1 1/2 C whole wheat flour
4 T honey
1/4 C olive oil
2 1/2 tsp instant yeast
1 T table salt
1/2 C rolled or quick oats
cooking oil spray

  • Place the cereal in the bowl of a standing mixer. Add boiling water. Stir and let stand until the mixture thickens (about 1 hour).

  • Whisk together all the flours in a separate medium bowl. Set aside.

  • Once the grain mixture has cooled, add the honey, olive oil and yeast. Stir to mix together well.

  • Place on the standing mixer fitted with a dough hook. Put the mixer on low speed and add the flours slowly, 1/2 cup at a time. Mix until the dough forms a ball, about 2 minutes.

  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let stand about 20 minutes.

  • Add the salt and knead on medium low speed for about 10 minutes.

  • Add the oats and knead for about 2 minutes more. Make sure everything is well mixed.

  • Lightly spray a large bowl with cooking spray. Remove the dough from the mixer and form into a ball. Put it in the bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to rise until doubled (45 minutes to 1 hour).

  • With rack in center, preheat oven to 375F. Spray two 9x5 with cooking spray.

  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and pat into a 12x9 inch rectangle. Cut the dough in half crosswise. Roll each piece into a tight log. Transfer each log to a loaf pan, cover lightly with plastic wrap and let rise until double in size (about 30 to 40 minutes).

  • Bake 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans and cool on a wire rack. Prevent people from tearing off chunks by slapping their hands.

    This recipe will make two 9x5 inch loaves of bread. From start to finish it takes about 3 1/2 hours, but actual working time is only about 30 minutes.

    NOTE: I tried to make this before I got my mixer. I thought my arm was going to fall off! Now it is so easy.
