Awesome Whole Wheat Bread
I have mastered the perfect bread machine whole wheat recipe. While I love making bread "the real way" with a fussy one year old, sometimes I just don't have the time. This recipe I adapted from the recipe that came with my breadmaker.
For 1.5 lb loaf:
1 cup + 2 Tbsp water (room temperature, 75 to 85 degrees F or 24 to 30 C)
1 Tbsp + 1-1/2 tsp butter or margerine, softened
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1-1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
2-1/4 tsp. yeast (I found that active dry yeast works fine, but you can use breadmaker yeast too).
Use the whole wheat setting for your breadmaker.
Place ingredients into the bread pan in the following order: water, butter, sugar, honey, salt, flour, and flaxseed meal. With your finger, make a small indentation on one side of the flour. Add yeast to indentation, making sure it does not come in contact with the liquid ingredients.
That's all! Happy eating.
If anyone wants the amounts for a 2lb loaf let me know and I'll post them ;)
