whole wheat cinnamon raisin walnut bread

Last weekend was a crazy one of movin’ and shakin’. Emphasis on the movin’, not so much on the shakin’.

Molly moved back to Philadelphia for an awesome job, so our friend Meghan moved in! Yay! I helped her move stuff on Friday, and we ended up rearranging our entire first floor. Then I helped these two fools pack and move on Saturday and Sunday.

Everybody wants to take advantage of the Body Pump muscles.

They have one other roommate, who packed up his stuff and went to Ocean City for the weekend and casually requested that they move his stuff to the new place.

Who would say yes to that?!

Apparently me, because I was helping. When we were cleaning out the kitchen cupboards, we found this bread machine. Neither of them had ever seen it before, and it presumably belongs to Selfish Roommate #3.

So I took it.

He won’t know it’s gone. Consider it payment for my labor.

Approximately 3 hours after bringing it home, I already had this loaf cooking. Approximately 3 minutes after it was done, I had eaten half of it.

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin Walnut Bread

adapted from Sunbeam Recipe Book

2/3 cup water

2 tbs softened margarine

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup unbleached flour

2 tbs dark brown sugar

3/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 3/4 tsp active dry yeast

about a palmful each of raisins and walnuts

Place the ingredients into the pan in order. Follow the directions according to your stolen bread machine. Mine kneaded the dough for about 15 minutes before I added the raisins and walnuts in, and then it did the rest! Kneading, rising, baking. I was captivated.

I did the buttering and the eating.

For future reference, I will lift heavy things in exchange for black market kitchen appliances.
