super bread!!

This bread is wonderful.  No fat and full of whole grains.  By the way can
someone send me the digest that went out today Tuesday Nov 5th.  I was a
little quick with the delete button ( my mailbox was filled with trash this
morning!! )

2 cups of water
4 tablespoons of sugar  (white, brown, honey or molasses)  you choose
3/4 cup of non-fat dry milk
1 tablespoon dry active yeast

   cracked wheat, oatmeal, steel-cut oats, triticale, wheat, barley, rye
cornmeal, wheat germ, wheat or oat bran.

Mix all of the above ingrediants and let sit in a cool dry place for 3 - 8
hours.  This will produce a nice sponge.

Then add
2 cups of whole wheat flour
2 1/2 tablespoons of vital glutan
1 tablespoon of salt
3 cups of unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup additional water.

nead for 4 minutes.  let it sit 5 minutes, nead for additional 4 minutes.
 then let rise one hour.  Punch it down, place in bread pan ( or it makes
great rolls if you use muffin pan)  and let rise another hour.

minutes depending on the shape of the bread.  It is done when you tap on it
and it sounds hollow and has a nice golden crust.
