  • 1/4 c. Wheat bran
  • 1/4 c. Brown sugar

  1. My current favorite bread machine recipe is for Brother Juniper's Struan Bread from a fabulous book called Rustic European Breads for Your Bread Machine by Linda Eckhardt. Look for this one in your local library. I do not own the book and my library's copy is out so all I can give you are the measurements for a 2 lb loaf. This bread keeps moist just like a bread with fat because of a secret ingredient-cooked brown rice. Which is also the one drawback with this recipe in which you have to have cooked brown rice on hand. I use short grain brown rice and cook it up while I am preparing breakfasts. Short grain cooks up quickly.
  2. I use my regular white bread setting. A wonderful and nutritious bread!
