Serves: 12
Total Calories: 160


1 cup water
2 tablespoons margarine or butter, softened
1 1/2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons dry milk powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons yeast
1/2 cup coarsely chopped, pitted prune
1/3 cup chopped walnuts


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

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

Select Whole Wheat or Basic/White cycle. Use Medium crust color. Remove baked bread from pan, and cool on wire rack.

We found from our testing that the same amount of yeast is needed for both the 1 1/2-pound and 2-pound loaves.

If your bread machine doesn't have a Raisin/Nut signal, add the prunes 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.

Toast slices of this prune-studded bread to serve at breakfast with fluffy scrambled eggs, Canadian-style bacon and fresh-squeezed orange juice. Serve with lemon curd or orange marmalade.
