Cracked Wheat Bread

Amy Alusa


This is an excellent Wheat Bread recipe. I got it from my favorite bread machine cookbook: The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook.(By;Beth Hensberger. The Harvard Common Press, Boston Massachusetts)

This is quite a large cookbook,and I have been absolutely delighted with every recipe I have used here. It has any bread you could possibly want, and the recipes are collected and adapted by a Master Breadmaker. Enjoy!
