Cracked wheat can be found in health food stores and it adds a nice texture to this light loaf. Very easy to make in a bread machine.
Cracked wheat gives a little crunch to this bread, great for sandwiches. Instead of 3 cups bread flour, I used 1 1/3 cup bread flour, 1/3 cup cornmeal and an additional 1 2/3 cup whole wheat flour (2 cups whole wheat flour total). - 15 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Excellent bread! Texture was light, cracked wheat adds a little crunch. The only caveat was my crust was slightly crunchy (but that was because the dough was too large for my 1.5 lb Zojirushi) and I had to continue baking the bread in the oven at 375 for another 15 minutes after the baking cycle completed. Even after that little snafu, the bread still came out tasty with a light texture which will be great for sandwiches and toast! Will need to use the dough cycle next time and bake in a 9x5 loaf pan. Note: I subbed in 1-1/3 cup whole wheat flour (instead of using just 1/3 cup of whole wheat and reduced bread flour to 2 cups). Highly recommend!

Dense texture and nicely flavored. As always, I added 2T gluten to aid in the rising and structure of the texture. Good bread and lovely when toasted.Set bread machine for dough cycle, then shaped into loaf and baked in 9X5 pan at 375 degrees for 33 minutes. Thanks Sue. - 22 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
