2 cups water (80° – 85°F) 

2 tablespoons unsalted butter 

¼ cup sour cream 

¼ cup honey 

2 teaspoons salt 

2 tablespoons Italian seasoning 

2 garlic cloves (1 tablespoon), minced 

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese 

1 cup quick-cooking oats 

3 cups King Arthur 100% Whole Wheat Flour 

1- 1 ¼ cups King Arthur Unbleached Bread Flour, divided 

2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten 

1 (¼ ounce) package rapid rise yeast


1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese, divided 

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, divided 


  1. Layer ingredients into bread machine in order given. Set the bread machine on DOUGH cycle. Check the dough after 5 minutes. Dough should form a soft ball around the kneading blade. Add water sparingly. If dough is too dry, add water sparingly. If dough is too wet, add more flour, 1 tablespoon at a time. 
  2. When cycle is done, remove dough from machine. Divide dough in half. Roll each half of dough into a 12 x 8-inch rectangle. Starting with shorter side, roll up tightly, pressing dough into roll. Pinch edges and ends to seal. Place loaves, seam-side down, into two greased 8 ½ x 4 ½-inch loaf pans. Sprinkle tops of loaves with grated Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. 
  3. Cover; let loaves rise until double in size, 45 to 60 minutes. Bake in preheated 375°F oven 40 to 45 minutes or until done. Tent the bread loosely with foil if the bread browns too quickly. Remove from pans; cool on wire rack.
