Entered for safe-keeping, from "The Best Bread Machine Cookbook Ever: Ethnic Breads" by Madge Rosenberg. This is a light bread, good for breakfast or tea. The chocolate is more a scent rather than making the bread sweet. Try it with a peanut butter sandwich, or coat it with bitter-orange marmalade.
Entered for safe-keeping, adapted from Cook's Illustrated to use half bread flour and half whole wheat flour. This makes one 9-inch loaf, so I have loaded the ingredients in the order my Zo ABM would prefer, as I am usually lazy about bread. Note: 2 1/4 teaspoons is the amount of yeast in one envelope. I have included directions for use with standard mixer or food processor, which will of course have longer prep times.
This is my dad's recipe from long ago. Sadly, he passed away in 2006, but his bread lives on through our family. I bake this in the machine on 2lb loaf with medium crust. I've also just set the machine for 'dough' and made loaves out of it freehand. They are still wonderful. Try adding dill seeds to this bread for a nice treat. Seeds... not dill weed. This bread is terrific for sandwiches... toast... really anything. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.
Years ago when I lived in Colorado, a neighbor, Pat gave me a loaf of bread for an early Christmas present. It was so lucious that I asked for the recipe, and then discovered it was made in a Bread Machine...so asked for one for a Christmas gift from my husband. I have been making this recipe ever since. It is the favorite of all breads I make. I usually use the dough cycle and bake in a conventional oven since I prefer the crust texture that way.
This is a moist, sweet bread that is fantastic spread with apple or pumpkin butter.
These directions are for a 1 lb. loaf in the bread machine. Be sure to find out if your machine require liquid or dry ingredients to go in first.
Note: This recipe makes a lovely loaf when baked in the oven - in this case, use the "dough" cycle on the bread machine only.
I found this at Allrecipes.com and thought I would post it since I didn't find anything similar here. I love the flavors of cranberry and orange so this bread was a big hit with me even though it is a fairly dense bread. Since I didn't have enough dried cranberries, I added some dried apricots and it turned out nicely. I made french toast out of it as well and it was great. The bread machine makes this super easy.
I would just DIE without my bread machine....I am yeast challenged!! This recipe is one that I am dying to try! If you have to choose a setting on your machine to let you know when to add the chocolate chips and pecans, be sure to do that - mine does this automatically.
