Celebrate Bread!

Today is National Homemade Bread Day. Technically I made this bread yesterday, but I'm posting it today in honor of the "holiday." I found this recipe on Lovestoeat's blog and printed it out immediately. I love my bread maker and am always looking for new recipes to try out in it. My in-laws invited us for a pasta dinner yesterday so I volunteered to make this bread to bring. It's delicious - nice and light with a good nutty flavor. It's yummy with butter and would be delicious as a sandwich bread. Make some today to celebrate! :)

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

1/2 cup water , plus 1 tablespoon
1 large egg
2 teaspoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk , plus 2 teaspoons
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon table salt
1 1/2 cups bread flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons dry active yeast

Add ingredients in order suggested in owner’s manual; continue process with machine on basic/standard or whole-wheat bread setting.

Yummy bread! I didn't even know about the "holiday" and I made homemade rolls yesterday. I feel so good now.
