Everyone loves this bread, mainly because of the extra texture and taste provided by the variety of grains. I have given measurements for the seeds, but in reality I just use my mood to determine the amounts.

Ingredients
Servings: loaves
Instructions
  1. Put honey in a soup bowl, add water and stir to dissolve honey. Add the yeast. Stir and allow to sit for 10 minutes and froth up.
  2. Put dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix.
  3. Add egg, milk, and olive oil and begin mixing with a heavy spoon. Make a well in the mixture and add yeast from soup bowl. Continue mixing.
  4. When dough begins to form, coat hands with flour and begin kneading. Continue to add water as needed until dough is smooth but slightly sticky. I usually knead the dough for a minimum of five minutes.
  5. Form into a ball and cover bowl with a towel. Allow to rise until double in size (minimum 30 minutes).
  6. Punch down and knead for another three or four minutes. Split dough into two and form loaves.
  7. Line baking pan with parchment paper and set loaves on pan. Allow to rise for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  8. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Place loaves in oven and cook for 15 minutes.
  9. Turn loaves, reduce heat to 340 degrees and cook for 7 minutes.
  10. Pull out of oven and brush with oil. Cook at 340 degrees for another 7 minutes.
  11. Tap to ensure the bread is done... Pull out and rest on a grate.
  12. Allow to cool until husband can't wait one more second. Slice off a couple of hunks and ... enjoy!
