Makes a very small loaf. Would probably be better if the recipe was doubled and set at 2-pound light setting on machine. Read More

I don't know what happened but it turned out like a large rock. I know that the yeast was good but it obviously didn't rise. I added all the ingredients that were written in the recipe but was very disappointed at the results. Read More

I really like this recipe but am perplexed about why it rises beautifully until it is kneaded the final time. It looks rounded and perfect until then. I am using bread machine yeast that is new. The end result is a small lumpy loaf. Not pretty. It tastes okay but it looks bad. Read More

Nice bread. Has a hearty taste to it. I doubled this bc based on the few reviews it appeared it would be a tiny loaf. Hard to tell if this is the doubling or just how it is but the dough was a sticky mess (I just used the dough setting on my breadmaker and baked in the oven) and it rose easily. It almost overflowed my pullman pan but I punched it down then put it in the oven without rising again. Looked beautiful and both hubs and I liked as is with a bit of butter. Thanks for the recipe.

I doubled this recipe to make the dough in my large bread machine. I had to add at least a half a cup more flour to get the dough ball to form correctly. It rose nicely. When I took it out to form into a loaf it was a very wet batter and I had to add about a cup more flour to get it out of the pan off my counter and to form into a loaf. I then let it rise for 40 minutes and baked at 350. The end result looks like a nice dense bread. However there is no molasses flavor. Probably adding so much more flour resulted in needing more sweetner. It is okay once you spread on some jam or Nutella. Read More

I have just taken the loaf out of the breadmaker. I've eaten 3 slices and could keep going! It is wonderful. After reading the previous reviews I added a touch more flour before starting the machine (about one eighth C). I used Canadian all purpose instead of bread flour. I checked the dough when the machine alarmed for adding items and it was a bit dry so I added a few drizzles of water. The final result is a lovely little "artisan" looking loaf that has a very very slight hint of molasses flavour that you might not even notice if you didn't know it was in the mix. It is not heavy at all light with a crispy crust. Not sure if this had any effect - I always add about a tablespoon of raw sunflower seeds and half a tablespoon of ground flax to my breads. Try it you'll like it. Read More
