Multigrain Bread

A few weeks back I posted our recipe for raisin bread and everybody loved it. So I thought I would give you our recipe for our everyday bread recipe…. multigrain bread. Just like the raisin bread, it is almost impossible to buy commercially made bread that is both soy and dairy free so we had to make our own. This is absolutely delicious and a nice healthy option for sandwiches. And you wouldn't even know that it was soy and dairy free!



375ml of water

2 teaspoons of oil ( we use sunflower but canola or vegetable oil work fine)

2 teaspoons of salt

2 teaspoons of sugar

500g of plain flour (or bakers flour)

150g of wholemeal flour (if you don't want to use this just add another 150g of plain flour)

1/3 cup of mixed grains

2 teaspoons of bread improver (be careful many have soy flour in them)

2 teaspoons of yeast.

spray oil



1. place ingredients in the bread pan as per manufactures directions adding the mixed grains just after the flour(s)

             – for our Breville the order is

  1. water
  2. oil
  3. salt
  4. sugar
  5. flour
  6. mixed grains
  7. bread improver
  8. yeast

2. set it for a dough cycle

3. lightly spray bread tin sunflower oil

4. when dough cycle is completed, remove dough and place directly into bread tin punching down slightly.

5. preheat oven to 200 deg cel, and let dough rise once more (for about 15mins). If you have a lid for your bread tin place on the tin leaving it open about 1/4 of the way

6. close lid and place in oven for 30mins

7. remove from oven and turn onto wire cake rack to cool…… or serve immediately for some lovely warm bread



Helpful hints:

– – Mixed grain mix:

our includes any combination of

  • Kibbled Wheat,
  • Kibbled Rye,
  • sunflower seeds,
  • pumpkin seeds, 
  • Linseed,
  • sesame seeds,
  • poppy seeds,
  • oats.

I usually have to purchase the grains individually (500g lots) and combine them in a container ready to just scoop out and add to the bread. Most prepackage grain mixes include soy products. So depending on what is available and what we feel like will determine what we add to our bread. You can also add any other grains you wish.

– if you don't like wholemeal flour, just replace it for total of 650g pf plain flour

– if you don't have a bread tin you can just finish the baking in the bread machine
