Oat-Wheat Sandwich Bread (Bread Machine)


A finely textured, delicious bread for sandwiches, toasting or just eating with a thin skim of butter. We tested at least a dozen recipes prior to declaring this the winner. You can substitute other nuts or seeds for the pecans, or wheat germ instead of flax seed.

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup high-gluten white bread (high gluten) flour (see note below)
1/3 cup oats
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
