Since I'm using old bread machine set on medium crust-white bread, the first time I tried this, the bread fell.

Health bread using a bread machine step by step

  1. Place all the ingredients in the bread machine in the order suggested by your manufacturer (mine layers the liquid first and yeast last).
  2. Set machine to dough and let it do its job.
  3. Once it's done, remove the dough. You can then put it into a bread pan that has been greased or you can make a round loaf or you can plait as I did in the photo. If you want to plait, cut the dough into 3 with a large knife. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece into a sausage and then plait..
  4. Sprinkle seeds on top of loaf and spray with a bit of water to keep moist. Cover and leave it in a warm place to rise for an hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and bake for approximately 40 minutes in the middle shelf. Check on the bread at 35 minutes to ensure the crust isn't getting too dark..
  6. Allow to cool before slicing.

You just put the ingredients in the mixing pan and either forget it until it's baking (oh, the scent of baking bread) or until the last rising. Bread machines are designed to be used with baking yeast, but you can still use a bread machine to make sourdough. Most bread machines are designed to work with breads leavened with commercial yeast, and therefore are programmed for a short and consistent rising period. Yeast used in a bread machine should always be labeled "Active Dry" on the label. Sometimes you can buy yeast in a jar that says it is specifically for bread machines.
