Tips

  • About 20 minutes into the process, check to see if the flour is not sticking to the walls of bread maker.  If it is, use a silicone spatula to push the flour into the dough. 
  • To make it extra healthy, avoid raisins.  
  • Also freeze bread once it's cooled in the freezer for 3 days, this will kill the yeast.  Make sure you slice it first so that it’s easy to pull apart when frozen.
  • If you are not eating the bread in less than 3 days, keep the bread in the freezer.  Bread will perish much quicker due to the fact it has no preservatives.
