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!
Made during Ramadan Tag Game 2010
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!
This is a delicious bread, and the first "non-Breville machine recipe" I have made. I made a couple of slight changes to the ingredients: instead of milk, I used water and 1 1/2 tablespoons milk powder, and I substituted sultanas (golden raisins) for raisins. I also added 1 1/2 teaspoons salt (as every recipe in my bread machine book has salt!). BTW, I did add the walnuts - yum!! It took me a while to re-order the ingredients as stipulated by my Breville, but then, I am pedantic, whereas it would probably have been fine to throw in all the liquids, followed by all the dry goods. I will surely make this bread again and again - I am thinking of using it for Bread Pudding in the Microwave #28954. It would also be great, as Cookgirl suggests, for French Toast. Today I requested Mr Garrett's bread recipe books at my local library ;-)
Wonderful dense crumb on this bread! The only problem was we didn't have any left over for french toast! Now I have to make another loaf. The only changes I made were for high altitude - less yeast, a little more liquid, and a teaspoon of gluten.
Very good. I didn't add the walnuts, I increased the raisins to 1 cup.Used 1 teaspoon dried orange peel and 1/2 teaspoon reg ground nutmeg.I used 1/2 cup icing sugar, weren't sure what you meant by powdered sugar.Used the dough cycle and made buns as they are preferred over bread here. Turned the oven to 400° and when I put the buns in turned it down to 375° and baked for 12 minutes.
