I’m really liking the new bread maker… a lot! I like that that it makes horizontal loaves and I like having all the breads come out with a perfect shape and with perfect texture. I have been diligently following the instructions to check the dough ball during the first few minutes of the initial mixing cycle… and letting the dough ball tell me if I need to make any necessary adjustments. Usually I need to add less than a tablespoon of additional liquid. I would guess that this would change when the humidity levels do.
We think this whole wheat honey bread is especially good. It tastes great, cuts easily, and is wonderful by itself or for sandwiches. I usually substitute white whole wheat for the all purpose flour to make loaves that are 100 percent whole wheat, but the recipe… as is… makes a very nice loaf as well.
1 egg plus enough water to equal 1 1/4 cups
3 tablespoons oil
1/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons yeast
I use the basic cycle and the light crust setting. This recipe makes a two-pound loaf.
