    These were very good. I did the dough cycle and made them into rolls :)

    I changed the recipe to add more whole grain. Increased the cornmeal to 1/2 cup, decreased bread flour to 2 cups, and added 3/4 cup whole wheat flour. It made a beautiful loaf that sliced well. Better texture tan most bread machine recipes. Delicious.
