This is from Madge Rosenberg's cookbook, The Best Bread Machine Cookbook Ever - Ethnic Breads. She says in its introduction, "Although it has no nuts, this bread is nutty and fruity, dense and healthy. Amaranth, a high-protein grain from Central America, contributes the mellow flavor that goes so well with orange and honey. It is wonderful to wake up to the smell of amaranth bread and to start the day with a wallop of taste and nutrition."

I thought it was delicious. I ground amaranth in my Magic Bullet to make amaranth flour and I didn't have powdered milk but I had powdered buttermilk. Came out great.

Delish. I made this with agave nectar instead of honey and it worked just fine. I love the touch of sweetness with the orange flavor- it's just a hint but there. It's great as a breakflast bread. It rose just fine on the second try- it was my yeast that was the problem. Made for Jan 09 veggie swap. Thanks for posting!

I could not find any amaranth flour, just the grain itself, so I threw that in. This gave the bread an extra crunch. The orange flavor was subtle but there. I made my dough in the bread machine and then transferred it to a loaf pan, let it rise and baked it at 375 until brown and hollow sounding. Great bread especially for toast. Made for Photo Tag.
