Didn't use bread machine, baked for about 40 min at 350F. The brown rice gives it texture and a slightly sweet taste.

This was a really great tasting loaf of bread. It was so moist and smooth. I've never made bread in my bread machine, except from a mix before, and it was so delicious! The whole family loved...
