This is the best Cracked Wheat Bread Recipe I had ever used. I cut the All Purpose Flour down to a bit over 3 cups for that soft texture and great crumb... The 4 cups is good but a bit more dense.
And too, I like to toss in a couple Tablespoons of Flax Seed to kick it up a bit.
This is an incredibly light, tasteful bread. I let it rise for almost a full hour and a half the second time and the dough tripled... making it even more airy! Since my family has been on this health kick lately I added 1 cup more whole wheat flour instead of the white flour. Now they can eat it AND say it is healthy! :)
I have searched for a great wheat bread recipe for years- I've finally found it! Unbelievable texture and the flavor (with a little extra molasses on my part!) is heavnly. My family loves it and so do I. THanks for sharing it!
I used all whole wheat flour. The loaves tasted just slightly sweet. Having to cook the cracked wheat won't slow you down too much.
With a soft texture and a firm yet giving crust, this Cracked Wheat bread recipe sure pleased our taste buds. This was the first recipe we used with cracked wheat and it was delicious. Because of past experiences with wheat flour we feared this bread would be dense but it was far from it with a hint of sweetness. Like another reviewer, we found the bread needed to rise longer than specified (ours took over an 1 hour on the first rise and an 1 1/2 hour on the second rise). But don't let this stop you from using this recipe, this will be our go-to wheat bread from now on. Thanks for the recipe.
I have made several wheat breads in our bread machine -- most from "all recipes". This is by far the best. My husband rated it "outstanding!" Thanks for sharing!
Great bread, Nancy. Wonderful dense texture but with a light and fluffy crumb. Nutty flavor, and best of all pretty healthy. I sub'd canola oil for margarine. Thanks for sharing.
very easy recipe. wonderful texture and flavor. also makes great dinner rolls.
