  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a bowl, combine bulgur and millet. Add 1 cup boiling water. Let stand for 5 minutes; drain well.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together 1 cup of the bread flour, the gluten flour (if using), and yeast; set aside.
  3. In a saucepan, heat and stir 1- ¼ cups water, molasses, butter, and salt until warm (120°F to 130°F) and butter is almost melted.
  4. Add to flour mixture. Beat with an electric mixer on low for 30 seconds, scraping sides. Beat on high for 3 minutes. Stir in bulgur mixture, whole wheat flour, oats, wheat germ, and as much remaining flour as you can.
  5. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes total). Shape into a ball. Place in a lightly greased bowl; turn once. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size (1 to 1- ¼ hours).
  6. Punch down dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Cover; let rest for 10 minutes. Coat an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan with cooking spray; line bottom with parchment paper, if desired. set aside.
  7. Shape dough into a loaf; place loaf in prepared pan. Cover; let rise in a warm place until nearly double in size (about 30 minutes). Preheat oven to 375°F.
  8. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until bread sounds hollow. Cover bread loosely with foil for the last 10 minutes to avoid overbrowning. Remove from pan. Cool on a wire rack. Remove parchment paper, if using.
  • Equipment: Bread Machine Directions: Prepare bulgur as directed in Step 1. Add ingredients to 1- ½-pound loaf bread machine as directed by the manufacturer, except use 2 cups bread flour, the gluten flour, and 1- ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast. Add bulgur mixture and 1- ¼ cups water. If available, select the whole grain cycle or basic white bread cycle. During kneading cycle, check and, if necessary, add more bread flour or milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make a dough that forms a smooth ball. Remove from machine; cool on a wire rack.
