Spiced Cranberry Wheat Bread
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 3-1/4 hours
Makes1 loaf (2 pounds, 16 slices)
This is the best bread recipe I have made in my bread machine. It has become a huge request from everyone that has tried it, that I have made it a holiday gift tradition for the past 2 years to all family & friends. It is a heavy bread, but I increased the bread flour to 2 1/2 cups & decreased wheat flour to 1 cup. It seems to be a little lighter. Excellent recipe!!
The dough seemed too moist during the kneading cycle, but I decided to let it go since I measured the ingredients correctly and most wheat breads I make are dry. This bread was moist & delicious! It was heavier than I expected, but that may be because I added 1/3 cup chopped walnuts and omitted the orange zest.
This bread is absolutely awesome. I first made it about 3 years ago or so and it is a favorite and a hit with everyone who tries it. Perfect for the fall and holiday seasons.
