Also, you can use the dough cycle. Take dough out of bread machine & knead dough to get air out. Then put into greased loaf pan(s) (depending on size of recipe) put saran wrap with oil on wrap and cover loaf pan(s) and let rise in the pans. Put in warm place and let rise for about 35 to 40 mins. It shouldn't rise more than 2 inches over loaf pan(s). Take warp off & Put in oven at 375 deg F for 15 to 20 mins. Be sure that the top of loaf is at the center of the oven.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place all ingredients in bread pan, using the least amount of water listed in the recipe.
Note: We put the water, eggs, oil in the pan then add the mixture of flour, salt & sugar on top. We make a hole in the flour & place the yeast in that hole. Follow your bread maker's instructions on how to put ingredients in your pan.
2
Select Whole Wheat cycle and Medium Crust Setting. Press Start.
3
Observe the dough as it kneads. After 5 to 10 minutes, if it appears dry and stiff or if your bread machine sounds as if it's straining to to knead it, add more liquid 1 TBS at a time until dough forms a smooth, soft, pliable ball that is slightly tacky to the touch.
4
After the baking cycle ends, remove bread from pan, place on cake rack, and allow to cool 1 hour before slicing.
