Terrific Three Grain Bread for the Bread Machine

This recipe requires a little more preparation than other recipes, but it is worth it. Toasting the grains before adding to the machine gives a slightly nutty flavor that adds a wonderful taste and texture to this bread. Do not use quick cooking barley or oats. 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons water and 3 tablespoons dry milk can be substituted for the milk.

2 tablespoons regular barley
1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoons shortening
1 cup bread flour
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon active dry yeast

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the barley and oats in a shallow baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes, stirring every five minutes. Let the barley and oatmeal cool to room temperature. Place the barley and oatmeal in a blender and blend until the mixture is the consistency of flour. Add all of the ingredients to the bread machine as directed by the manufacturer.
