Four Grain Batter Bread

This is a no fuss, no knead bread. Excellent flavor and texture.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: makes 2 loaves, about 16 slices each

Prep Time: about 15 minutes   Cook Time: about 25 minutes  


3 1/2 all purpose flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 packages regular yeast or active dry yeast
2 cups very warm milk (120 to 130 degrees)
1/2 cup very warm water (120 to 130 degrees)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1 to 1 1/4 all purpose flour


Mix 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sugar, salt, and yeast in a large bowl. Add milk and water. Beat with electric mixer on low speed until moistened. Beat on medium speed 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in whole wheat flour, wheat germ, oats and enough of the 1 to 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour to make a stiff batter.

Grease 2 loaf pans, 8 1/4 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches. Sprinkle with cornmeal. Divide batter evenly between pans. Round tops of loaves by patting with light floured hands. Sprinkle with cornmeal. Cover and let rise in a warm place about 30 minutes or until batter is about 1 inch below tops of pans.

Heat oven to 350. Bake about 25 minutes or until loaves are light brown. Remove from pans. Cool completely.

    Sounds like great bread. Unfortunately, as written, the recipe is not lactose-free or non-dairy.
