Total Calories: 170


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 nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1/2 cup golden raisins


Make 1 ½-Pound Recipe with bread machines that use at least 3 cups flour, or make 2-Pound Recipe with bread machines that use 4 cups flour.

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

Success Tip: We found from our testing that for good texture and volume, slightly less yeast is needed in the 2-pound loaf than is needed in the 1 1/2-pound loaf.

Success Tip: If your bread machine doesn't have a Raisin/Nut signal, add the raisins 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.

Dried cranberries used instead of the golden raisins would add a slight tart flavor to this bread. Or use regular dark raisins instead of the golden ones for the same sweet flavor and a nice color contrast.
