Panasonic SD2501 - seeking the perfect loaf recipe

I know different bread machines produce different results.  Anyone able to share some recipes they have perfected using the Panasonic SD2501? Would love in particularly a wholemeal recipe.

I have that same bread machine,   This recipe makes bread I really like.   I tired several times to make 100% whole wheat.  While it may be healthier, it just didn't taste as good.    I use the whole wheat and sandwich bread settings

Thank you for that.  Did you use plain flour or bread flour?  Also when you add the seeds and nuts?

I just use plain flour, nothing fancy.   The brand I use is "Wheat Montana" for both white and whole wheat.  I add the nuts right at the start when I add everything else. It says somewhere you should add all dry ingredients before adding the wet ones.  Not sure that is really that important.    Be sure to use sliced almonds and not whole ones.   I have ground up whole almonds in the blender and used them that way.   If you buy whole flax seed, be sure to grind it too
