Cranberry-Wheat Bread
ala Bruce/Catalyst

(and the bread machine)

I tried this recipe for a light wheat bread yesterday which includes honey and ground mace.

The result was a highly crowned loaf (oops, we've eaten the crown already) with an extremely light texture and a hint of sweetness.

I used dried Craisins in place of cranberries.

It's delicious, if I do say so myself.


  1. You certainly may say so-being the bread fan you are. And it looks and sounds delicious!

  2. Well done, Bruce. I never was satisfied with my efforts to make bread in a machine. Now we make do with shop-bought varieties. And as a French member of our family once said, "The French just do not know how to bake bread!"

  3. I didn't know what craisins were. An aunt and uncle have a breadmaker. They tend to go for Italian breads or sourdough.

    1. William, SWMBO asked me if I knew what Craisins are. I replied a combination of cranberries and raisins, dried. She laughed and said they are just dried cranberries and that the name "craisins" was just something dreamed up by an ad man! So, I used dried cranberries.

  4. Sounds good and looks good. I had a moment for a moment when I thought you added "ground mice" rather than "ground mace." Whew! My eyesight is getting just as bad as my hearing! :)

  5. Wow! Ground Mice and the offspring of the marriage of raisins and cranberries!

  6. Good bread like this is better than cake.

  7. I find it disturbing that none of us have gotten a next day delivery of a loaf of bread through fedex.......

  8. That looks tasty. I'm a bread-machine baker. We put craisins in our salad.
