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.
- 1⁄4 cup raisins
- 1⁄2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 1⁄2 cups bread flour
- 2⁄3 cup granola cereal
- 3 tablespoons dry buttermilk
- 2 teaspoons vital wheat gluten
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons yeast
- 3⁄4 cup water
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons honey
- Soak raisins in water for an hour before adding to the bread machine mid-cycle (when the machine beeps, in between the first and second rise).
- Add ingredients to machine according to manufacturer directions.
- Bake at basic one poud loaf setting.
- When finished, remove bread from pan and cool on a wire rack.
Lovely, slightly sweet bread! Would be wonderful for French toast or bread pudding, or a plain old peanut butter sandwich. The bread maker crushes the granola such that it adds a little texture without being lumpy. Only change I made was to use powdered milk rather than dry powdered buttermilk. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for PAC fall 2007.
