For our last anniversary, Dad-oo treated me to my very first bread machine. I know, romantic isn’t? Actually, that’s what I asked for, and it is one of my favorite anniversary gifts every.
Since I’ve had the bread machine, I’ve kind of turned into a bread-making freak. I use it at least twice a week, sometimes more if I’m really in the mood for some carb-loaded goodness. Bread, dinner rolls, hot dog buns. Pizza dough, cinnamon rolls and English muffins. Mmmmmm, now I’m hungry.
I’ve been experimenting with a bread recipe for the last couple of months, trying to perfect it so I could share it with everyone. Now, it’s finally ready. Tada! A healthy, whole wheat bread that isn’t too heavy, with a slightly sweet and nutty flavor. And when it’s fresh from the oven, it makes a killer PBJ.
