This is a bread machine recipe. Try it to make a peanut butter-and-jelly sandwich. It's amazing. It uses the machine's dough cycle but is baked in the oven.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place water, milk, vanilla extract, brown sugar, white sugar, cardamom, coriander, vegetable oil, and salt into the pan of a bread machine in that order. Pour the flour onto the other ingredients, and sprinkle the flour with yeast. Set the bread machine to the Dough cycle; turn on the machine.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch bread pan.

  • When the Dough cycle is completed, remove the dough from the machine, punch down if necessary, form into a loaf, and place into the prepared bread pan with the seam side down. Cover and let rise until doubled, 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the loaf is golden brown, 35 to 45 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to finish cooling on a rack.

Cook's Notes

We've been making a lot of this since I first invented it about a year ago. We experimented a lot with multiple parameters and we found the following to be very important:

Use DARK brown sugar. Light brown sugar isn't as good.

You can use oil or butter, but there's no discernible difference and since oil is cheaper, we use oil.

High-gluten flour makes for a more satisfying loaf, but you can use normal flour. Or add a little extra gluten yourself.

Finally, for a softer loaf replace all the water with milk (for a final milk volume of 1 1/4 cup milk).
