"As a diabetic, I tend to stick with tried-and-true recipes," Barbara Severson writes from Tularosa, New Mexico. "I added spices to a well-like oatmeal bread for this loaf and it’s the best my bread machine has ever turned out. I think it tastes best warm with tea or coffee and whipped topping."
This bread is so full of flavor that spreading butter on it is not necessary. I always hear yums, oohs and aahs when guests take their first bite. It's best served warm, and the next day makes the best toast you've ever had!
Says Ruth Fanger of Monroe, Oregon, “I developed this recipe in an effort to match the flavors of our favorite store-bought bread, adapting it to a recipe in my bread machine manual. A hearty, great-tasting loaf!”
"After 3 years of trial and error, I came up with a simple and delicious bagel recipe for the bread machine," says John Russel of Greentown, Indiana. "Now I enjoy trying variations, like this fruit and nut favorite."
I love my bread machine and am always trying new recipes in it. This bread is one of my successes. When it's baking, the whole kitchen smells wonderful. Basil, garlic, chives and Parmesan cheese give this tall tender loaf a real Italian flavor.—Joy McMillan, The Woodlands, Texas
From Jami Blunt of Hardy, Arkansas, this hearty aromatic bread has just a hint of honey and garlic. She writes, “This is one of my favorite breads. It goes with anything from bologna sandwiches to spaghetti.”
I really enjoy the convenience of my bread machine and use it often. Of all the recipes I've made in it, this is one of the best. The wonderful aroma while this herbed bread is baking makes it hard to wait for a savory slice.
