“I modified this recipe from a 'copycat' recipe which made mini-loaves as served at a local steakhouse chain restaurant. They no longer serve their mini-loaves, but I can have this delicious bread at home anytime thanks to this recipe!”

I have a Zojirushi 2 lb loaf bread machine. I adjusted this recipe as follows: 1 1/4 cup water,1 1/2 tbls. butter/marg, 3/4 tsp salt, 2 cups bread flour, 1 1/4 cups whole wheat bran flour, 2 tsp. Red Star Active Dry Yeast. I eliminated the sugar, and left the honey, coffee and cocoa powder the same as original recipe. I also added 1 tsp. gluten flour. The bread came out rose right up to the top of bread pan. I used basic bread/medium crust setting.

LET ME STATE TWO THINGS FROM THE GET GO: I didn't think about measuring out the yeast, I just automatically added the whole packet and I do not own a bread machine. I made this bread with my Kitchen Aid from beginning to end. I warmed the honey with the water to very warm, not hot. (Boiling water will kill your yeast.) I dissolved the coffee in the warm honey water, then added it to the yeast in the mixer bowl and let it proof for ten minutes. After that, I added the melted butter, then the rest of the ingredients. I needed about a 1/4 c. of extra whole wheat flour to get the dough together enough to pull together and jump on the hook. I greased up the dough just a bit with a little of the butter from the bowl I melted the butter in, then set it to knead with the hook for five minutes. I let it rise in a greased metal bowl on my warm oven for an hour, then shaped it into a loaf and set it to rise in the loaf pan for another hour and a half, or until it almost rose above the loaf pan. I baked it at 350* for about 25 minutes, or until it smelled done. This is a nice whole wheat loaf with a distinctive flavor that is really like nothing I've ever had before. Just outstanding. Fluffy and rich tasting, almost like a bakery bread. This would be great with a nice hearty stew. I'd make this again. NOTE: Make sure your loaf pan is well greased. I had a difficult time getting this particular bread out of my pan.



I have never used a Bread Machine before or even made Homeade bread from scratch. Even after reading the bad reviews, I made this bread on my first attempt. I went by rkplucker advice and put it for 1 1/2 loaf. When I kept peeking in, it did look "gooey", up until the last hour. Then it came out great! It tastes great too! I made this again for my 3rd loaf and plan on making this all the time.
