Honey Wheat Harvest Grain bread in the Awesome Bread Machine

I brought the Awesome Bread Machine out after two years of snobbishly insisting that I would never use a bread machine again. My oven has become peevish. Action had to be taken.

I found a recipe for wheat bread through Pinterest from 100 Days of Real Food and since I can't leave a recipe well enough alone, I tweaked it. I cut the wheat flour with white, upped the honey by half and added a couple of handfuls of King Arthur Harvest Grains mix. The result was a nutty, quasi-dense loaf substantive enough to make a sandwich satisfying.

We had picked up some pumpkin butter and cherry butter from a little shop in Lampasas on the way back to El Paso Sunday. The tart cherry butter set off the nutty bread quite well. Can't wait to make this one again!
