I am going to make this bread today, but I will cheat and use my bread machine to knead the dough initially. (I blew my left shoulder and being left handed just can't do the dough justice by kneading by hand). I will keep with the original ingredients but cut the recipe in half for 2 loaves except I will use Red River Cereal in place of the cracked wheat and flax seeds as Red River Cereal is made up of cracked wheat, cracked rye and flax seeds. I use it all the time in place of cracked wheat! I make bread all the time and wouldn't recommend doubling or quadrupling the grains because this will make the bread too dry and too grainy, spoiling the texture.
Ok, so I made two loaves of this bread. It worked very well in my bread machine but I added probably a cup more of the whole wheat flour while it was kneading as it was way too sticky. After trying the bread, toasted for breakfast I recommend cutting back by half the amount of molasses and honey, as I found it way too sweet. Otherwise it is a very good bread and I will definitely make it again.
