Recipe by Gloria J.

This is a geat healthy bread for the bread machine. It is great toasted or for sandwiches. I make a two pound loaf every weekend and it never lasts long enough. Be sure to start with all ingredients at room temperature.

This bread is really moist and flavorful. I added an extra tablespoon of gluten since I substituted soft white whole wheat flour for the bread flour. It rose up beautifully and will make a wonderful addition to my holiday table:)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put all ingredients except cranberries and walnuts in the bread machine pan.
  2. Bake at light crust, basic setting.
  3. Check the dough in the early stages of mixing. It should form a smooth but slightly sticky ball.
  4. Add additional flour, one tablespoon at a time, until the dough ball looks right. I usually have to add 2-3 tablespoons more flour, but it varies with the amount of humidity in the air.
  5. Add cranberries and walnuts at the add fruit signal, or about five minutes before the end of the kneading cycle.
