bread machine


This is one of my absolute favourite breads from our bread machine cookbook. It’s made with molasses and cornmeal, giving the bread a bit of a nutty flavour and a great texture!

The recipe below is from “Canada’s Best Bread Machine Baking Recipes” by Donna Washburn and Heather Butt.
