A great every-day bread, good for toast and sandwiches. I have dark, coated metal pans, so I bake it at 350. This came from a great frugality blog called Wanting What You Have. The author recommends putting the dry ingredients in a ziploc (in reverse order), then storing several batches in the freezer, to streamline the process. Prep time includes dough cycle on my bread machine and rising time.
- 1 1⁄4 cups warm water
- 1⁄4 cup honey
- 1 tablespoon powdered milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup flax seed meal
- 3 tablespoons wheat bran
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 1⁄4 teaspoons active dry yeast
- Place ingredients in your bread machine hopper in the order listed. Make a small well to rest the yeast inches.
- Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
- Place hopper in the machine and select the dough cycle for a 1.5 lb loaf.
- When the cycle has completed, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface (I use a silicone baking mat with a light coat of cooking spray.) Shape the dough into a uniform loaf.
- Place the dough into the prepared bread pan.
- Cover with a damp towel and let rise to double it's size.
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Bake the bread for 30-40 minutes, until the crust is browned and makes a hollow sound when tapped.
- Allow to cool before slicing.
Bread was good. But there are better recipes on here for a everyday bread. I really like breads wth flax and bran added. Thank you so much for posting the blog address! I have really enjoying it! I'm going to use lots of her ideas! livingonadime.com is also a good site!
