Multi-Grain Bread: Bread Machine Recipe

Fresh Baked Bread from the Breadmaker

Upon removing the first loaf from the bread machine, I thought, why is it shaped like that? It wasn't anything like the typical loaf of sliced bread you purchase from the supermarket, the perfectly rectangular block with no dents or grooves. But, I have to say I have grown to love my breads quirky appearance.

Just look at those sweet cheeks! I just want to pinch them!

When I buy or make breads, I prefer multi-grain versus white breads for sandwiches. I used an 8-grain cereal, as that is what I had on hand, but you may use the 12-grain version too. This simple recipe is great for sandwiches as it turns out light and fluffy.
