I have a few favorite recepies, but most of the time i just improvise. :)

Here are two of my favorites, one in norwegian and one in english ;)
ENJOY!

FOUR grain bread

  • 1 cup(s) whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup(s) coarse cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup(s) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon(s) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup(s) wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup(s) brown sugar (packed)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons instant active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoon(s) honey
  • 1/2 cup(s) buttermilk, warmed to 100 degrees F.
  • 3/4 cup(s) (add more as needed) spring water warmed to 100 degrees F.
  • 1 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  1. Make the dough: In a large bowl or food processor, combine the flours, cornmeal, 1/4 cup oats, wheat germ, sugar, yeast, and salt. In a small bowl, combine the honey and buttermilk and stir into the dry mixture. add the Water 1/4 cup at a time until a dough comes together. On a work surface lightly dusted with whole-wheat flour, knead dough by hand until glossy and elastic -- about 10 minutes -- or process in food processor for 45 more seconds.
  2. Proof the dough: Coat a large bowl with the vegetable oil. Shape dough into a ball and place in the bowl, turning dough to coat all sides. Cover bowl with a clean, damp kitchen towel and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size -- aprx 1 hour.
  3. Form the loaf: Punch down the dough and shape into a tight ball. Sprinkle a baking sheet with cornmeal. Shape the dough into a 10-inch oval, tapering the ends, and place on the baking sheet. Cover with damp kitchen towel and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size -- about 20 minutes.
  4. Bake the bread: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, lightly beat egg with 1 tablespoon of water. Brush loaf with egg wash and sprinkle with remaining tablespoon rolled oats. Using a sharp knife, cut 3 diagonal slashes in the top of the dough. Bake in the lower third of the oven until the loaf is golden brown and sounds hollow when lightly tapped -- 50 to 60 minutes. Cool on a rack. Serve at room temperature or toasted. Store in an airtight container.
