  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Large Loaf (2-pound bread machine)

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2/3 cup walnuts
  • 2/3 cup raisins
  • 1 tablespoon Red Star Quick Rise Yeast


  • Have liquid ingredients at 80°F and all others at room temperature. Place ingredients (except walnuts and raisins) in pan in the order recommended by manufacturer. Select basic cycle and medium/normal crust. Walnuts and raisins can be added 5 minutes before the end of the last kneading. Do not use the delay timer. Check dough consistency after 5 minutes of kneading. The dough should be in a soft, tacky ball. If it is dry and stiff, add water, 1/2 to 1 tablespoon at a time. If it is too wet and sticky, add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time. When cycle is complete, remove bread from pan; cool on wire rack.
