14-Grain Bread

Bob's 14-Grain Bread

8-10 cups flour (I did half wheat, half white and it only took about 9 cups --if using all white flour it can take up to 12 cups)
2 Tbs. yeast
1 can evaporated milk
3 cups warm water
2 Tbs. salt (I know it sounds like a lot but that's right)
1 tsp. Sugar
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup honey or molasses (I used honey)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
About 2 cups 14 grain mix (you can purchase it at the Bosch store- I used entire bag)
Mix contains
2 cups 9-grain cereal
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup sesame seeds
1/3 cup amaranth
1/3 cup millet
1/3 cup flax seed (you have to grind it- if not leave out)
2 handful Craisins (I didn't use them in my recipe)

Sprinkle yeast over 1/4 cup warm water, slightly mix and top with 1 tsp. sugar- to test to see if yeast is active.

Mix together canned milk, 3 cups warm water, honey or molasses, salt and oil. Then add 14 grain mix, and craisins (if you like).
Add the yeast mixture and mix for 30 seconds.
Add cups of flour, until the dough pulls away from sides of bowl and is not very sticky.
Mix in Bosh for 10 minutes, this is the kneading process (if you have a kitchenaid take out and knead by hand. The dough can burn up your motor.)
Shape into ball, cover and rise in a greased bowl until it doubles in size (about an hour)
Grease 5 bread pans, separate dough into each pan, cover and let rise again.
Bake all 5 pans 40-45 mins @ 350 degrees. The bread to be golden brown on top. (I cooked my all at once in a convection oven and they only needed 30 minutes.)
