  • Have liquid ingredients at 80°F unless otherwise specified in your manual; all others at room temperature.
  • Add ingredients in order recommended by bread machine manufacturer. Select Whole Wheat Cycle, and medium/normal crust. 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, carefully remove bread from pan; let cool on wire rack before slicing.


For great garlic bread, mince a few cloves of garlic and combine with 1/2 cup softened butter. Spread on a slice of bread and grill until lightly browned.
