1 egg
2 cups whole wheat flour up to 2 ½ cups

In large mixing bowl, mix the boiling water and cereal; let stand until cooled. Add the oil, honey, and salt to cereal. In small bowl or cup, mix the warm water into the yeast. Let stand 5 minutes or until yeast is foamy. When cereal mixture has cooled to 105F-115F., add yeast and egg. Stir in enough whole wheat flour to make a stiff dough; let stand 15 minutes. Turn out onto lightly floured board and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes. <

Punch dough down and shape into an oblong loaf. Lightly grease an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan. Place dough into pan. Let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375F. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until loaf is browned and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pan and cool on rack.
