3/4 Cup Cracked Wheat
1/2 Cup raisins
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1 Teaspoon salt
1 packages active dry yeast
1 Cup boiling water
1/3 Cup water
1 1/2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1 1/2 Cups bread flour
1 1/2 Cups all purpose flour

Preparation / Directions:

1 In a large bowl combine cracked wheat -- brown sugar, salt, butter and boiling water. Mix well and allow to cool. Put flour in ABM (you can use either all all purpose flour or all Bread flour but this bread I like the texture of half and half) add yeast. Add cold water to cracked wheat and make sure it is not overly hot. If to hot it will kill the yeast. It should be luke warm. If you are making the loaf in the ABM select the setting you use for making raisin bread and at the beep add the raisins. Fancy method: If you want to make it look a lot better (impress someone) Mix one egg and add about 1/2 to the Mixture. Select the dough setting. When ready take the dough out and form into a ball press down slightly. Place on a greased cookie sheet and let rise 1 hour. Use a brush and brush the rest of the egg on the loaf. Then take a sharp knife and cut a criss cross pattern on the loaf about 1 inch wide and 1/2 inch deep. Place in a preheated oven 350 for about 35-45 minutes
