Homemade Bread

Thanks John Markos for your guest post! We've been doing some baking in our house too.

Selma and James have gotten out the bread machine--it's been idle for a few years now. We used to make bread almost every day when we first got it. It's an older model--the kind that makes the tall loaves--but the recipes that came with it are very good (especiallly if James prepares them, for some reason, I don't have as good luck with baking in a machine, I like to get my hands in the dough.)

At any rate, tonight they made a cracked wheat loaf. It finished after everyone else went to bed and I just had to steal a little taste while it was still warm... So good--very crusty on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.

They make a few adaptations to the recipe to veganize it--Fearn Soya powder instead of dry milk, spectrum organic shortening instead of crisco (of course crisco's vegan but not very healthy.)

Is there a link to this bread recipe? I just recently got a bread machine and I'm looking for good vegan whole grain breads to make in it.

Hi Starla--we just changed the recipe that came with the machine--but I'll a version of it here for you today...

Hi Amy:

Thanks so much. It will be the first bread I make in my machine.

That's a nice looking bread, bread is often so simple but very satisfying! Great coffee cake posted by your brother below. Glad to see you in the kitchen again. Your pasta salad looks gorgeous! I've been making a curried one off the side of the quinoa/corn macaroni box.
