Step 1

Mix first 5 ingredients together and put in the bread machine pan.

Step 2

Sprinkle the flour and flax on top of the ingredients already in the pan. Do not mix the wet and dry ingredients together.

Step 3

Make a small "well" in the flour mixture and put the yeast in the "well".

Step 4

Put the pan into the breadmaker and select "white" bread setting and 1lb loaf.


I only use whole wheat "bread" flour as it has more gluten and makes a much lighter loaf of bread.

Since I always make my own bread in the bread machine, I measure my flour and ground flax into zip-loc sandwich bags and store them in the freezer. This saves time when I need to bake a loaf of bread. Just be sure that the flour mixture is at room temperature when you use it.
