When it comes to bread, whole grains are usually what people are looking for. This bread is 2/3 whole grains, with 1/3 white wheat and 1/3 rye. The final third is bread flour, because I think it helps the texture of the bread.

This makes a nice sandwich bread, and it couldn't possibly be easier.

  • Yield:Makes 1 loaf
  • Active time: 15 minutes
  • Total time:4 hours, 15 minutes


  • 1 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 4 1/2 ounces (about 1 cup) bread flour
  • 4 1/2 ounces (about 1 cup) white whole wheat flour
  • 4 1/2 ounces (about 1 cup) rye flour
  • 1 tablespoon wheat gluten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups cool water


  1. 1.

    Add all the ingredients to your bread machine in the order required by your bread machine (this is the proper order for the machine I have,)

  2. 2.

    Set the machine for the regular-style loaf, dark crust (if you have that option)

  3. 3.

    Remove the loaf from the machine when it is done baking. Let it cool completely on a rack before slicing.
