Honey-Whole Wheat Bread

I'm not sure where I got this recipe -- probably from my grandma when she first gifted me with a bread machine many moons ago.  But it's a keeper.  A great everyday loaf to eat with dinner or make into sandwiches.  And warm, with butter oozing into every little crevice?  Mmmmm.
I'm sure I will return to cooking something other than breads and cookies eventually.  What is it about the dark, sometimes dreary winter months that make baking sound like the perfect leisure-time activity?

1 egg
1/3 c. water
1 c. milk
1/4 c. honey
1 T. butter
2 t. salt
1 c. whole wheat flour
2 c. bread flour
1 package (2 1/4 t.) yeast

Dump everything into your handy-dandy bread machine in order listed.  Push the magic button and voila.  Four hours later you will be inhaling the delicious aroma of homemade bread and slathering on the butter and thinking you really should cook some carrots pretty soon.

There is just nothing better than homemade bread, except maybe homemade bread with lots of butter :)

I have tried unsuccessfully so many times trying to bake a bread. I dont have a bread maker...maybe that's the reason. A belated Happy New year :)

Oh M. Kate, I am sorry you haven't had any luck with baking bread. I never made it regularly until I got a bread machine. It is such a worthwhile purchase, as long as you're not on a low-carb diet :) Because that bread sure does make the whole house smell terrific. Which, of course, makes you want to eat it.
