nothing necessarily healthy..............thanx
Not sure how much it depends on the breadmaker. We've got a Morphy Richards one, in which this works really well. We make brown bread, and use:3 tbsp brown sugar1.5 tsp salt13 fl oz watera slosh of oil (maybe 2 tbsp? not sure exactly)4 cups (4 x 240 mL) bread flour (we use a 2:1 mixture of wholemeal flour with brown flour)Sometimes we add a handful of sunflower seeds or poppy seeds.1.5 tsp fast-action dried yeast (the really fine stuff, not the sort that comes in little balls in a tin)Always add the flour after the water, else sometimes it doesn't all mix in properly. Which doesn't work nearly so well. And if you're going to use a delay timer, put the yeast on top of the flour so that the yeast doesn't make contact with the water until the cycle starts.We use a 3 hour baking cycle (the first one in the menu of our breadmaker...). But I've no idea what it does beyond that.
If you want consistent results, always weigh the flour. The density of flour is anything but constant.
