  • 1 In large bowl, mix 3 1/2 cups of the all-purpose flour, the sugar, salt, baking soda and yeast. Add milk and water. Beat with electric mixer on low speed until moistened. Beat on medium speed 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.
  • 2 Stir in whole wheat flour, wheat germ, oats and enough remaining all-purpose flour to make a stiff batter.
