Fall Harvest Bread
For many, fall and the approach of winter is the signal to get the bread machine
out of the closet. The following recipe is an easy to make and tasty bread that
uses autumn seeds.
Ingredients - this will make a 1.5 to 2lb loaf
1 cup warm water
1 (.25 ounce) package yeast
1/4 cup honey
4 teaspoons vegetable oil (you can also use olive oil)
3 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat bran (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup shelled, toasted, chopped pumpkin seeds
Apart from the seeds, put all the other ingredients into the bread pan in the order
recommended by the manufacturer. Select the whole wheat cycle and press start. Add
the sunflower and pumpkin seeds when your machine signals you to do so at the
"add extras" part of the cycle. Just before the bake part of the cycle you can brush
on some beaten eggs on top of the dough loaf and sprinkle on some of the seeds.
Oatmeal and Fruit Bread
