Ever since I got my Zojirushi bread maker, it's been non-stop bread making. I haven't bought a loaf of store bought bread since April and I think my kids would yell at me now if I did. I have tried many recipes and here is the one I am using now.
Ingredients to place in bread maker in order
- 1 cup of lukewarm water
- 1/3 cup of warmed milk
- 3 Tbl of butter
- 2 cups of bread flour
- 1 and 3/4 cups of whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup of golden flax seed meal
- 3 Tbl of sugar
- 1 and 1/2 tsp of salt
- 2 Tbl vital wheat gluten
- 1 and 1/2 tsp rapid rise yeast
Please note that depending on the time of year you may have to add a little more water. I always watch as the dough is kneading and if it just isn't coming together right I add a Tablespoon at a time.
