Bread Variations

Today I was thinking I need to make a bread to go with the soup we are having for supper.  Do I want to do Anadama no but I will use some cornmeal(1/4 c.) but I don't want to use molasses it is too heavy so let's  use honey(2T) since I am almost finished with that bottle. water and salt are a must (1C &1t) flour oh how about
2C bread flour and 1C white wheat so it is a whole grain bread but won't look like one.  The flour may be heavy so let's use 3T of  buttermilk power and 2T of unsalted butter. Threw all of this into the bread machine programmed for dough. I love this setting as it warms and kneads and goes through 1st rise without me.
Here it is ready for the oven. I will bake this for 10 min. at 400 and then for 20 min. at 350.

Not so basic
1C water
1t salt
1/4C cornmeal
1C white wheat flour
2C bread flour
2T butter
3T buttermilk powder
2T instant yeast
2T honey.
Then after baking.

Sliced and ready to go.

Making this a great winter supper.
