Seeded Whole Wheat Buttermilk Bread (Bread Machine)

This is an adaptation of a recipe I made from Betty Crocker's Bread Machine Cookbook. Feel free to experiment with different seeds that meet your liking (example: dill, coriander, poppy, or fennel seeds). Intended for a 2 pound loaf (zmail me if you need the recipe for the 1.5 pound loaf - it is not a direct down conversion).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients in bread machine pan in order, or to the recommendation of your bread machine manufacturer. Make sure you make a well for the yeast on top.
  2. Select the Basic/White cycle (I like this better than the Whole Wheat cycle). Select Medium or Light crust color, according to your preferences (I use Light).
  3. Once baked, carefully slide bread out of bread machine pan, making sure to remove the dough blade. Cool on a wire rack.

Lovely bread. I made the dough in the bread machine this morning and then shaped and baked it into burger sized sandwich buns. Everything went great and I have delicious buns that will enhance everything from burgers to egg salad. Marvelous recipe.

ZWT4: Excellent! We used our 2 hr Insta-bread cycle and it turned out perfect! I made the bread using these exact measurements and ingredients for our 2lb bread loaf!!
