This is a wonderful flavourful and light bread. I did make a few changes: I substituted Molasses for the honey, as well as 12 grain flour for the whole wheat, as well as a 12 grain cereal. I also used 2 TBSP of yeast rather than one. I did find I had to increase the amount of flour slightly, but that could be because I am beside the ocean. I don't have a bread machine so mixed in the tried and true method that I always use when making bread. I bloom the yeast in 1/2 cup warm water with the molasses, then add in a large bowl the water , egg, salt, oil and the yeast mixture, gradually adding the flour until the dough is no longer sticky but still soft. I then place in a lightly oiled bowl, oiling the top of the dough as well, cover with plastic wrap and place in my oven to rise ( I have a proof setting on my oven), until double in size, punch down, form into loaves, allow to rise again, then brush with egg wash and bake. I also add a shallow pan of water to my oven, it keeps the bread moist while baking. I think next time I may add sunflower seeds as well love that. Definetly a keeper!
