Quick wheat bread

Yield: 16 servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup Whole wheat flour
1 cup White flour
½ cup Oat meal(quick cooking)
¼ cup Brown sugar
1 tablespoon Orange peel finely shredded
2 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Baking soda
½ teaspoon Lite salt or less

Baked in a round casserole dish and garnished on the top with sunflower seeds, this bread is a winner!

Preheat the oven to 350. In a large bowl combine flours, oatmeal, brown sugar, orange peel, baking powder, baking soda and light salt until well blended. Add milk and egg white; stir only until ingredients are moistened. Fold in the sunflower seeds. Lightly oil a 1½ Qt. casserole dish; sprinkle lightly with wheat germ. Pour batter into prepared dish.

Bake for 50-60 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center of bread comes out clean. If necessary, cover loaf with foil during the last 15 minutes of baking to prevent overbrowning. Cool in casserole for 10 minutes; turn bread onto wire rack. Brush top of loaf with 1 teaspoon of honey and sprinkle with additional 1 tablespoon of sunflower seeds, if desired. Serve warm or cool.
