 12-Grain Bread

This is a variation of a recipe I use often, it starts in the bread maker then comes out to be shaped as a loaf for the oven.  This particular loaf was done in a longer pan to make a nice sandwich/toast size slice. 

I used bread enhancer for this one (basically additional gluten), sold as Fleischman Bread Enhance locally but any gluten should work fine. 

1 2/3 cups water
3 tbsp powdered milk
2 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp molasses
2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups white flour
3/4 cup 12 grain cereal uncooked
1 1/4 tsp yeast
5 tsp gluten 

After the bread machine complete the dough cycle, shape a loaf and put it in a lightly oiled loaf pan.  Let rise 1-1.5 hours covered with an oiled piece of plastic wrap.
Bake at 375 for 40 minutes, then when you remove the loaf, rub the top with butter to stop it from drying it out (that's from my Mom).
