1 c Warm water

Original recipe makes 1



add ingredients to your machine in the order it calls for. if using the bread maker for the whole cycle, bake on the wheat bread cycle. i prefer not to use the machine to bake my loaves...they are awkardly shaped and hard to cut, so i use the machine only for the kneading. :) so, for dough, set the machine on the dough cycle. it should go through its first rise. after cycle is done, turn dough out on to a floured surface and knead for a few minutes. put it into a bowl lightly sprayed with non-stick spray and let rise for 1 hour, til doubled. put dough blob into a loaf pan and bake at 450 for 10 minutes, then lower oven temp to 350 and bake about 30 minutes, or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. this makes a smallish loaf that freezes well when sliced.

Not enough liquid in recipe
LoonDawg 3y ago

I made bread just like the recipe using the breadmaker for the dough, then baked it in the oven. It was delicious! Not too heavy!

I made this recipe in my bread machine, following all instructions in the recipe and for my machine, but it came out very coarse and dry. I would suggest adding more liquid to the recipe, like oil or an egg which would keep it moist, but it would have to sub for some of the water, as the top of my loaf fell slightly, which is usually due to too much liquid. Perhaps a tbsp of vital wheat gluten and an egg subbed for some of the water would help, but I don't feel like making the adjustments. Overall, not a bad recipe, but it could definitely use improvement.
