This recipe won 1st prize at the 2008 Coos County Fair.


In the large bowl of an electric mixer, combine the yeast, water, and 2 Tb. of honey, salt, butter, and 3 cups of the unbleached flour. Beat 4 minutes at medium speed. Divide batter equally in three different bowls.

Whole wheat portion: add the wheat germ, 1 Tb. honey, 2 Tb. molasses, and the whole wheat flour in one bowl. Knead until smooth. Return to bowl.

Rye portion: add 1 Tb. honey, 2 Tb. molasses, caraway seeds, cocoa, and rye flour. Knead until smooth, return to bowl.

White portion: add 1 Tb. honey and1 ½ cups unbleached white flour. Knead until smooth, return to bowl.

Cover bowls and let rise until double. Punch doughs down and divide each in half. Roll each half into a 15 inch rope. Braid 3 of each kind into a braid (you will have two braids). Put each on a greased cookie sheet and let rise until almost double. Bake in a 350°F oven for about 35 minutes.  Makes 2 braided loaves (12 pieces each).

This is a great bread. Easy to make; tasty results. Okay, so I did add honey and some melted butter, but it is still a great bread.
