Cranberry Whole Wheat Bread

Serves: 12
Total Calories: 174


1 cup plus 2 tablespoons water
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons margarine or butter, softened
2 cups bread flour
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon ground mace
2 teaspoons bread machine or quick active dry yeast
1/2 cup dried cranberries


Make 1 Pound Recipe with bread machines that use at least 2 cups flour, or make 1 1/2 Pound Recipe with bread machines that use at least 3 cups flour.

Measure carefully, placing all ingredients except cranberries in bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Add cranberries at the Raisin/Nut signal.

Select Whole Wheat or Basic/White cycle. Use Medium or Light crust color. Do not use delay cycles. Remove baked bread from pan, and cool on wire rack.

If your bread machine has a 2-pound vertical pan, the loaf will be short, but still will have good texture and flavor. If your bread machine has a horizontal pan, however, there isn't enough dough to make a good loaf of baked bread.

If your bread machine doesn't have a Raisin/Nut signal, add the cranberries 5 to 10 minutes before the last kneading cycle ends. Check your bread machine's use-and-care book to find out how long the last cycle runs.

Try This
You can use raisins if you don't have dried cranberries handy. Actually, any dried berry will do-you also may want to try dried cherries or blueberries. For a triple-berry treat, mix cranberries, cherries, and blueberries together, and use the same amount as if your were using just the cranberries.

Sandwich Board
Spread slices of this cranberry-studded bread with cranberry relish. Stack on slices of cold turkey and Swiss cheese, and top with your favorite kind of lettuce or sprouts and gobble it up!
