A recipe. From Mimi. :) I like to throw some rosemary, garlic and pine nuts in the food processor and then add them in with the water. MMMMM!!!!
- 1 3⁄8 cups warm water
- 2 cups bread machine flour
- 1 3⁄4 cups wheat flour
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄8 cup vegetable shortening
- 1 1⁄8 teaspoons yeast
- Place ingredients one at a time in the order listed above.
- Follow bread machine manufacturer's recommendations for baking bread.
I tried this recipe today, and it turned out very well. It certainly isn't as light as Wonder Bread, but is reasonably light for whole wheat bread. The flavor is good, though I'm wishing now I had read the comment about adding rosemary and pinenuts before I started, rather than after I'd finished baking. We won't have any trouble eating the bread as is, however, and there's always a next time. I made this bread by hand, but was very careful to use the ingredients called for, and measure them exactly. I used the exact amount of bread flour (not bread machine,) flour and whole wheat flour. For the whole wheat, I used 1 cup whole wheat flour with somewhat larger bits (called graham flour), and 3/4 cup finely milled whole wheat bread flour. I got one 615 gram loaf, six rolls of 60 grams each, and one 50-gram roll. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us. From the yield, I would imagine that this is for a 2-pound bread machine, and might be more than what can be conveniently baked in a machine, but I am hardly an expert.
came out like a rock hard brick!!!
