Bread Machine:Honey Flaxseed Meal Whole Bread

Last week I forget to get new loaf of whole wheat bread from the store while food shopping.Instead of running out again to the store,I suggested to hubby that I should make whole wheat bread at home since I have plenty of unbleached flour,whole wheat flour and bread machine.As for bread we only buy whole wheat bread because it's has better health nutrient than white bread.Having bread machine at home really make our life easier when making bread.All I have to do is measure the ingredients and dump everything in the machine.Just press the function button,there it's goes...No need to remove the dough after mixing or move the dough to pan or to bake in oven.. I added honey and bread improver to make the bread extra soft and tangy sweet.

Ingredients :
2 cups Water (room temperature)
2 tbsp Melted Butter
2 tbsp Brown Sugar, packed
3/4 tsp Sea Salt
2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
2 cups White Flour, Unbleached or Bread Flour
2 tsp Yeast, Active Dry
2 tbsp Maple Syrup or Honey
2 tbsp Flaxseed Meal*optional*
1 tbsp Bread Improver *optional*

1:All ingredients should be at room temperature before starting.Add all ingredients in the order suggested by your bread machine cycle and process on the whole wheat bread cycle according to the manufacturer’s directions.
2:After the dough cycle finish remove the blade from the pan.Let the dough proof accordingly before the bake cycle start.Remove pan from machine after bake cycle done with beep.
3:Let loaf cool for 15 minutes before remove from pan and slice.Makes 2 lb loaf (13 slices or more).

That is one great looking bread. I am thinking if I should get a bread machine or not since whole wheat is very expensive now. It cost bearly $4 for a loaf.

will try your bread recipe. I like the texture, look soft too..

I was told that flax seed oil should be kept cold and should not be cooked under heat, it will lose its nutrition benefit if it is heated.

thank you:)

it's a good idea to have BM at home,save time especially come wheat bread at your area cost so much.usually they have weekly promotion for different kind of bread for about $1.99-2.50 in any supermarket

mine BM brand is Sunbeam,not really great especially have shorter blade which is not really ideal if I used more than 4 cup of flour..I would prefer to get Zojirushi BM coz it's more superior but it's super expensive.if you bake frequantly,why not invest little extra $$$ get a better brand.You can get Sunbeam in Walmart or online..

thanks! yes any seed meal is good for health benefit.

thank you:)

Thank you:) just get a BM,let it's do the work! no need to crack our brain out!

Thank you:) I used flax seed meal which look like grain cereal not the oil..well you can look the pix at red or king arthur guess when the flax seed was process into meal ,it's ok to use if not this major suppiler won't promote it...i think:)

daphne and BBO:
Thank you!

The sunbeam is good. I use it all the time! you still have to get a feel for making the dough right, especially since I use my sourdough starter instead of yeast. Found you looking for a flax meal bread recipe. Curious about the heat thing also. I would imagine the beneficial oils may cook out in a baking recipe?
