Superb Herb Bread

"Caraway, poppy seed, sage and nutmeg give this tender bread its superb flavor. 'I received a blue ribbon at our fall festival for this recipe,' notes Doris White of De Land, Illinois. 'My bread machine makes it convenient to prepare the dough for this loaf--it's light, delicious and the wheat flour makes it extra nutritious.'"

I didn't have any sage on hand so I used rosemary instead. I also used half bread flour and half whole wheat flour. I won first place in our local fair. This recipe is a definite keeper!

Should be sup-herb bread

I used only whole wheat flour, changed the caraway seeds to fennel seeds, used a fresh chopped onion instead of the dried kind, and loved the bread!

This bread is AWESOME !!!!!! I pulled it out of the oven 10 minutes ago, and the loaf is almost gone. Outside crust is nice and crunchy and the inside is amazingly soft. Perfectly moist, and ...

Yummy! My whole family loved this bread!!
