i've never put sugar in bread, infact when my sister told me she cut the amount of sugar she used in her bread maker i was kind of baffled & asked her why she put sugar in anyway. its not something i have ever heard of.
i dont own a bread maker, i much prefure to make my bread by hand. i find kneeding the dough quite threaputic & the more you kneed the nicer the bread seems to come out. here in the UK you can buy wholemeal bread flour to make wholemeal bread it just takes a bit longer to sort out.
if you make white bread using white flour you just mix the ingredients together, kneed & leave to rise under a tea towel before baking.
making wholemeal bread you mix the ingrediants together, kneed for as long as you can. leave the dough to rise for a few hours then go back to the dough & kneed it for aslong as you can again & leave it to rise for another two hours. if you want to kneed it again after this second rising time you can but itsnt always neccary.
you can add lodes of stuff to bread, why not try cheesey bread by throwing some grated cheese in to the ingrediants, or some seeds (pumpkin, poppy, flack, seasamy seeds just to name a few), what about some onion (onion & poppy seed is lovely), sun dryed tomato bread, banana bread, oat bread. the would is your oyster, go experiment.
