Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
This bread is FANTASTIC! I just bought my Zojirushi and this was the second bread I've ever made. I did it from start to finish in the machine and it turned out great. I was debating the whole time whether I wanted to finish it in the oven, but now I'm glad I didn't because I honestly don't think it needed it. The texture wasn't like typical bread machine breads. This bread had an awesome thin, flaky crust, and the texture of the bread itself was really light. The sunflower seeds add a delicious, nutty flavor to the whole thing. A few minor substitutions, instead of the flaxseeds I used 1/4 cup flax meal for nutrients, although I did toss a tbs or two of whole flaxseeds because I like the crunch. I also added 1/4 cup King Arthur fiber, and some KA whole grain improver. I ran out of bread flour so I had to use all purpose, it still tasted great though. I added a little bit of KA 6 grain flakes for added flavor and texture. As per so many recommendations here, I used canola oil instead of butter. This really turned out great and I would highly recommend. I even gave this to my (honest) chef father who doesn't typically like wheat or "healthy" type breads, and he even loved it. We buy multigrain bread at the grocery store to have as toast for breakfast every day, but this has totally replaced that. I'm so happy to have such a great recipe and know exactly what is going in my bread, definitely no preservatives!

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
I made this for the first time last year on St. Patty's day and forgot to save the recipe. I was SO RELIEVED that I was able to find it again! It was amazing and I was so worried I wouldn't be able to have the same delicious Irish soda bread this year. The other top rated Irish soda breads may be faster to make, but this is the most authentic and delicious tasting bread! I think I only did a cup and a half or 2 cups of rasisins, but I can't remember exactly. All I know is that I can't wait to make it again this year :)
