Original recipe yields 4 loaves



  1. Stir together the 1/2 cup water and applesauce in a small bowl. Dissolve the yeast in the mixture, let stand until creamy, about 5 minutes. Pour the yeast mixture into a large bowl with 3 1/2 cups of warm water, honey, molasses, vegetable oil, lemon juice, and eggs; stir together to combine well.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, flax seed, sunflower seeds, cracked wheat, and salt. Stir the flour mixture into the yeast mixture until a smooth dough forms. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in a lightly oiled bowl and cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  3. Lightly grease four 9x5 inch loaf pans. Punch down dough, shape into loaves, and place in the pans. Allow to rise in pans until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  5. Bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until the loaves sound hollow when removed from the pan and tapped on the bottom.

This bread is good. It is nice and moist for an all wheat bread. I had to add a lot more flour when kneading (at least a cup.) The recipe makes a lot of bread, so I would recommend spliting it into more than two pans. I used two pans and split the rest between mini loaf pans. My 2 year old daughter loves the mini loaves. My only change would be to reduce the molasses. Next time I might increase the honey and decrease the molasses because it is a very strong flavor. Overall, a recipe I will use again!



I have a passion for bread. I read the other reviews but had a feeling it would work out. Not only did it rise double in size, but it tripled...each time it rose--AND baked. I almost cried when it rose so much. I just love that feeling :) The trick is LOVE and not overworking it. I was in a hurry--and I think that helped. Make sure you have good yeast. I just made one loaf--cut the recipe in half. Thank you so much for the recipe; I hope your son is healthy and happy. Best, Jennifer



great recipe! I didnt have cracked wheat, or sunflower seeds so put in 1/4 cup chopped fine walnuts. I used 3/4 cup honey to 1/4 cup molasses. I added probably 2 to 2 1/2 cups more flour. I made it in my kitchen aid mixer..heavy duty one. I mixed it on Speed 2 until it just came away from sides. Also my flour was freshly ground whole wheat from the farmers market. This recipe is big! I got 12 buns, 1 10"round, 2 --9 1/2 x 5 1/2 loaves. The texture is light and the taste is lovely. I found my bread ready in 25 minutes. I used a thermometer to 200degrees. I think you could make this recipe in any shape.
