Recipe by Chef shapeweaver �
I recently bought a new bread machine, and this was one of the recipes included in the instruction booklet.I've made this particular recipe twice,once on the basic bread cycle and once just using the dough cycle and finishing up in the oven.I personally prefer using just the dough cycle,after baking in the oven the crust doesn't seem as hard as it did using the basic cycle.I've tried a few recipes from this site for wheat bread and they weren't exactly what I was looking for,but to me this one is just perfect.Prep time is an estimate depending on your particular machine. If you try this,please leave a review I would love to know what you think. For our Canadian Chefs, I have included the amount of The Canadian Bread flour in parenthesis.This recipe makes a 1.5 loaf.

YEAH!!! I get to be the first to review this lovely recipe. It went together so well and very easy. DH and I both enjoyed it specially toasted for our morning meal. The only change I made was to add some chopped walnuts as we had some that needed to be used. The end results were great - not to sweet with a mild flavor of the maple, I be making this again for my holiday guests.
- 1 cup buttermilk (70 to 80 degrees )
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons butter (I used the oil ) or 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used the oil )
- 2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk powder
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 cups bread flour (or 1 1/4 cups Canadian Bread flour )
