Step 1: The Recipe
1/4 cup rye bread flour
1-1/4 cups lukewarm water (for Welbilt/Dak machines add 2 tablespoons more water)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
2 vanilla PowerBar Gel packets (1.44 oz. each)
3 tablespoons pine nuts
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1-1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoon yeast
Step 2: Press the start button!
Step 3: Helpful tips
2.) When you put the ingredients into the bread machine, make sure to keep the salt (especially wet salt) away from the yeast before pressing the start button.
3.) I typically spray non-stick cooking spray on the bread machine motor shaft before reinstalling the mixing paddle. This makes clean up a cinch.
4.) If you have trouble with breads rising too high and covering the inside of the lid with a doughy mess, wrap a layer of tinfoil up there. Next time you have an over-ambitious bread, cleaning the machine will be much easier.
5.) Bread machines were all the rage a few years back. Now you can pick up gently used machines from garage sales for as little as $2.00.
