Directions


Add ingredients to bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer.

Recommended cycle: Whole wheat/whole grain or basic/white bread cycle; medium/normal color setting. (If basic/white bread cycle is used, add 1 tablespoon gluten to either size recipe - see Tip below on adding gluten.) Timed-bake feature can be used.

Tip: Some bread machines have a whole wheat or whole grain cycle, which comes in handy when making whole grain breads. If your machine lacks this cycle, try adding vital wheat gluten to whole wheat, whole grain, and rye bread recipes to improve loaf height, texture, and structure. If your supermarket does not carry gluten, check with a health food store. Use 1 tablespoon for both 1 pound and 1-1/2-pound recipes.
