Eons ago (like 1o years ago) we got a breadmaker and initially we used it nearly daily, but... I always felt it had a weird texture and it didn't handle REALLY heavy whole grain breads well. Eventually, like 4 years ago I gave it away to my best friend when we moved because it had been sitting on my counter for three years and NEVER touched. Then, I bought a REALLLLLLY nice mixer to use for baking (better than KitchenAid) and while I LOVE This thing and it can make huge batches (8 qt capacity). I still don't make bread with it regularly because it's time consuming to be there for each step. So... during the holidays during another amazon.com lightening deal I got the top rated breadmaker for an unbelievably low price. But... I have no breadmaker cookbook! I want ONLY whole grains as that's what we eat 99% of the time. The book I had eons ago was great, but I gave it to my best friend too and it's pretty dated as it was used when I got it 10 years ago! Suggestions! And... do any of you take the dough out and just bake in your oven for better texture? I'm trying to save money here from STOPPING the trips to the bread store!
