Here is one of my favourite bread recipes to make in the bread machine.
1/3 cup flaxseed meal
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons margarine or butter, cut up
2 1/2 cups bread flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon active dry yeast or bread machine yeast
Add the ingredients to a 1-1/2- or 2-pound bread machine according to the manufacturer’s directions, adding the flax with the flour.
If available, select the whole grain cycle, or select the basic white bread cycle. Select desired color setting.
My parents gave me this recipe and I absolutely love it! They often prepare the dough in the bread machine and bake it in bread pans in the oven. I just bake it right in the machine and I’m always amazed how nicely the loaf turns out. A lot of other bread I’ve made in the bread machine have lumpy tops or are oddly shaped but this one is always a nice smooth and perfect loaf. It has a wonderful texture too. I’m curious to try it with more whole wheat flour, but I’m worried about ruining it. I’ll be brave and give it a try next time and let you all know how it works out.
The whole family loves this bread, especially when it’s still warm. There’s really nothing like fresh homemade bread, it’s so delicious!
