Amaranth & Whole Wheat Bread for Bread Machine

This recipe is adapted from The Bread Machine Cookbook by Donna Rathmell German. I used applesauce rather than oil, and whole wheat flour rather than bread flour. I omitted nonfat dry milk powder and chopped walnuts, and added flax meal, vital wheat gluten, and oat bran. The amounts here will make one large (2 lb) loaf.

  1. I used the Large Loaf, Whole Wheat, Light Crust Cycle for my machine--follow directions for your bread machine. I put all wet ingredients into the bread machine mixer bowl first. Then I mix all dry ingredients together in a separate bowl except yeast, particularly so the vital wheat gluten won't clump up. Pour dry ingredients on top of wet, add yeast, and there you go!
