I've been playing around with honey wheat sandwich type bread. I have the soft crumb that I want but the crust is lacking the sweetness and chewiness I'm trying to achieve. Any ideas? I could post the recipe if that would help. :confused:

Here goes:

2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 cups wheat flour
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp instant yeast
1 tablspoon honey
2 Tablespoons butter(plus more for greasing the pan)
scant 1 1/3 cups cool milk (whole or 2%)

Place all ingredients in bread machine and set to "dough" cycle. (I take it out after the first knead cycle- 7 minutes or so). Allow to rise in a warm place about an hour or til double in size. Punch down, shap to loaf and allow to rise again. Brush top lightly with water. Bake in a pre heated 350 degreee oven for 45 minutes.

That's the basic recipe. I usually don't brush the top with water, could that be it? :confused:

TIA
