>Readers, you know I’m a creative cook. I like to toss in a few extra or alternate ingredients to jazz up a recipe.
You might or might not know that Chuck, bless his heart, balks at knowing his food is healthy. He’ll eat it, even enjoy it, but don’t tell him that it’s high fiber or low fat or contains just the vitamins he needs. Just tell him it’s delicious and settle in to enjoy.
He calls all my favorite cereals Nuts and Twigs.
He’ll choose plain white bread over whole grain, given the choice.
He refuses to take daily fiber supplements because they make him feel old. Ahem.
So I made this. It’s a basic white bread in the bread machine with a few additions for, well, for fun.
Daisy’ Bread with Nuts and Twigs
makes a 1 1/2 lb. loaf
1 cup + 2 Tablespoons warm water
1 Tablespoon butter or margarine, softened
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon non-fat dry milk powder
1 1/2 teaspoon (1/2 Tablespoon) salt
3 cups bread flour
2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
Now the fun. Add in 1 Tablespoon each:
sunflower kernels (dry roasted)
Set the bread machine to normal, push play, and let it bake!
