As you slice into this hearty whole wheat bread, you're sure to notice the interesting texture of poppy seed. But another special ingredient is the shredded carrot - adds to the bread's moistness and color. Be sure to just lightly pack the carrots when measuring.
Add ingredients to bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer, adding carrot with milk. (Carrots vary in moisture content. If dough is too dry or stiff or too soft or slack, adjust dough consistency - see Adjusting Dough Consistency tip below.)
Recommended cycle: Basic/white bread cycle; medium/normal color setting.
Adjusting Dough Consistency: After mixing for a few minutes, the ingredients should turn into a smooth ball around the kneading blade. If the dough appears too stiff or too soft, add more liquid or flour in 1 teaspoon increments, until the proper consistency is reached. Do not add more than 3 to 4 teaspoons liquid or flour.
