Basic Bread Machine Recipe



Low Fat, Low in Saturated Fat, Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free, High Fiber


2 ¾ teaspoons yeast, active dry
1 teaspoon malt extract
11 ounces water
(110 - 120 deg.f)
3 cups whole-wheat flour
½ cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
or honey, molasses
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons gluten flour


Put yeast and malt into machine with several oz. of water. Use a thermometer for the water. Too hot will kill the yeast. The yeast will now proof (start to multiply)

In a separate bowl, measure out all dry ingredients and mix.

After a few minutes, yeast should be bubbling, add dry stuff and any liquids including the water.

Start the machine and see how it looks. If too dry, add until it looks right.

Should be one big mass not several.

Flour: substitute 1 cup of corn or rye + 1 heaping tablespoon of gluten for a cup of WW flour.

For sweet breads, add another few tablespoon of sugar and maybe some raisins.

3 tablespoon of carroway seeds or sesame seeds in a non sweet bread is great.

Can also add 2 mashed bananas, then cut the water.
