This is from the book "Giant Book of Bread Machine Recipes" by Norman A. Garrett. I don't know how "authentic" the recipe is but it makes the house smell wonderful! Some of the ingredients and amounts were adjusted. I usually prepare two loaves of this bread-slicing up one loaf when it's day old and freezing later for french toast. Try adding chopped walnuts to this bread recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bake bread according to bread machine manufacturer's directions.
  2. Add walnuts and raisins at the beginning of the fruit/nut beep cycle.

Made for ZWT-8 because my DH loves homemade bread more than anything else he eats. I did leave out the raisins & walnuts due to DH's diet restrictions. All that said, we were of 2 minds when he said to my surprise that he favoured the savoury variety of breads. While I like both varieties, I was thrilled w/this bread & felt it was the best loaf of bread I'd ever made. The aroma of the cinnamon & nutmeg while baking & the taste of the buttered bread warm from the ABM were beyond divine! I did have a prob w/its texture. The bread is so light & airy that I couldn't get a uniform slice for toast. The bread fell apart in cloud-like pieces that I scooped up & devoured. I did have a bit more luck after I cut the loaf in half as you will see in the pic. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. It will be made again, if only for me. :-)

I used whole wheat flour, no egg and orange 1/2 orange juice instead of milk to make it lactose free. It worked really great and the bread came out fluffy and soft. It is not too sweet, just perfect. I liked it fresh with butter or cheese, it smells so nice! DH liked it also. I am not sure we will have some left for french toast but i love the idea!

This is an excellent recipe, not just good as I previously wrote. The nutmeg flavor is wonderful! I forgot to add the raisins and walnuts but I know how much better it would be with them! I will be making this often! Thanks!
