Belgian molasses bread



ahhh, the fresh aroma of bread coming out of the bread maker — what a delight.  even when i am trying to keep the carbohydrates at a minimum, how can anyone resist a slice of fresh bread?  the molasses and light wheat flavor of this bread is superb.

i chose to make the 1 1/2 pound loaf and was totally happy with the outcome.  the texture was perfect, and the tan color was so appealing. the slices were so tasty when toasted, served with a bit of honey.

to make this bread: place the following ingredients in a bread maker in this order.


1 1/2 teaspoons active dry bread yeast

2 1/2 cups bread flour

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup whole-wheat flour

1 tablespoon butter ( i used margarine)

4 tablespoons molasses

3/4 cup warm milk (i used fat-free and gently warmed in the microwave)

2 1/2 ounces warm water (also warmed in the microwave)

process on the whole wheat cycle and after the second beep, i removed the bread paddle and added King Arthur flour’s artisan bread topping.  delicious.
