Pumpernickel-Prune Bread (Abm)

“Based on a recipe from BH&G’s cookbook, Bread Machine Bounty. The default measures are for the 1 pound loaf, and I’ve placed the 1 ½ pound measures in parentheses. My photo shows a 1 pound loaf. Cooktime reflects my Panasonic; your machine could make it in a lot less time! Tip: I always stir my flours before measuring; this seems to give me the most consistent results. I also check the dough during the kneading cycle to see if more liquid is necessary; for this bread, I added several tablespoons of extra water to get a nice elastic dough.”

  1. Add ingredients to your bread machine in the order recommended by its manufacturer and use the basic bread cycle.
  2. Tip: I add the pitted prunes at the beep or when the manufacturer suggests adding chopped nuts, chips, etc.
