Orange Wheat Bread, 1 lb.

This recipe has both orange juice and grated orange peel to add a citrus flavor. A light textured, breakfast-type bread worth trying.

    2½ fl ounces (¼ cup + 1 tablespoons) orange juice
    4 fl ounces (½ cup) water, 80°F
    1½ tablespoons butter or margarine
    ⅔ cup bread flour
    1⅓ cups whole wheat flour
    3 tablespoons wheat germ
    1½ tablespoons grated orange peel
    1½ tablespoons sugar
    2 teaspoons dry milk
    1 teaspoon salt
    1½ teaspoons active dry yeast
    -or-
    1 teaspoon bread machine yeast

  1. Add liquid ingredients and butter to bread pan.
  2. Add all dry ingredients, except yeast, to bread pan. Tap pan to settle dry ingredients and then level, pushing some of them into the corners. Lock pan into bread maker.
  3. Make an indentation in center of dry ingredients fill with yeast.
  4. Select desired setting. Program timer, if necessary. Turn bread maker on. When bread is done, turn breadmaker off and, using oven mitts, unlock and remove the bread pan. Shake bread out of pan and cool on rack before slicing.
