Harvest Grain Bread Recipe

Harvest Grain Bread goes really well with sandwiches and toast, and today I am going to teach you the Harvest Grain Bread recipe so that you can make your own bread at home.

I had the opportunity to visit the King Arthur Flour Company Factory when my daughter was living in New Hampshire. 

When I walked into their gift shop it was like walking into “Baker’s Heaven”. It was filled with every imaginable ingredient and piece of equipment a baker could want.

  • cups (10½ ounces) Unbleached Bread Flour
  • ½ cup (2 ounces)  White Whole Wheat Flour, organic preferred
  • 1 tbsp King Arthur Whole-Grain Bread Improver (optional)
  • ½ cup (2⅝ ounces) Harvest Grains Blend or any combination of oats, nuts, seeds, millet, etc.
  • teaspoons salt
  • tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • ¼ cup nonfat dry milk
  • cups water
  • 3 tablespoons butter or vegetable oil


Manual Method

  • In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix with a dough hook on your mixer or with a hand mixer until a rough dough forms
  • Knead (about 10 minutes by hand, (5 to 7 minutes with a mixer) until the dough is smooth and satiny
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, or proofing basket that has been dusted with flour. Cover the bowl with lightly greased plastic wrap
  • Allow the dough to rise for 1 hour. It'll become somewhat puffy, but probably won't double in bulk

Bread Machine Method

  • Place ingredients into the pan of your bread machine in this order: Water, butter or oil, salt, flours, dry milk, bread improver, sugar and yeast. If your bread machine gives a signal to add extra ingredients, wait to add the Harvest Grains Blend until that time, otherwise add in about 2 minutes into the mixing cycle
  • Program the machine for dough or manual, and press Start
  • Check the dough about 10 minutes before the end of the final kneading cycle
  • It should be smooth and supple, not "gnarly."
  • Adjust the consistency with additional flour or water as needed (Dough should not be sticky)
  • Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl or proofing basket that has been dusted with flour OR
  • Shape the dough into a loaf, and place it in a lightly greased 8½ x 4½-inch bread pan
  • Cover the dough with lightly greased plastic wrap or an acrylic dough cover, and allow the bread to rise till it's crowned about 1 inch over the rim of the pan (about 1 to 1½ hours)
  • If you let the dough rise in a bowl or proofing bowl, let it rise 1 to 1½ hours and then gently turn it out onto a lightly greased baking sheet
  • Bake the bread in a preheated 350°F oven for 35 minutes, or until its interior registers 190°F on an instant-read thermometer. Remove the bread from the oven, take it out of the pan or off the baking sheet and allow it to cool on a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf
