I make this bread frequently. I don't change it as much as Richard does- I love all the seedy, nutty stuff as it is. I can't get 7 grain cereal here but can get 5 grain so I use that and add bulgar and extra pumpkin and sunflower seeds to the dough. What magnificent bread it makes! Either in a free-form loaf or in pans, doesn't matter. The best toasted bread ever!
I don't test the temperature of bread.....I have somehow skated along my whole life just knowing when bread is done.

- What is the temp for a dense quick bread? I always worry about underbaking. [NT] - Traca - 10:58am on 04/19/17
- I don't know but with quick breads my test is either a shiny knife or toothpick - Charley - 2:29pm on 04/19/17
- I do that too, but somehow something's not quite right. Cindy Mushet says pound cakes are 209 degree - Traca - 8:31pm on 04/19/17
- Well, you are right about getting pound cakes to that "right" internal temp. Thanks. [NT] - Charley - 8:50am on 04/20/17
