100% Whole-Wheat Bread III (Bread Machine) (P, TNT)
Yield: 1 loaf

For 1-1/2 lb. bread machine:
1-1/4 cups water
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
3 cups white whole wheat or traditional whole wheat flour, up to 3-1/2 cups
1/4 cup sunflower seeds, or sesame or flax seeds, or combination (optional)
1 tablespoon vital wheat gluten
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons instant yeast

Put all of the ingredients into the bread pan in the order listed. Program for basic white bread, and press Start.

Notes: The following recipe is one we worked out for the Zojirushi. It makes a firm, sweet loaf of golden bread. It shouldn't be hard adapting it to your own machine; all you need to know is what proportion of flour/liquid/yeast your machine functions best with. Take a look at the dough after it's kneaded for 20 minutes or so; it should be smooth, not sticky (too little flour) or lumpy (too little liquid), forming a nice ball. If the dough looks good at this point, you're probably all set.
