My family & I love this recipe!!!!! What I do with the bread is: I put it in the bread machine(the ingredients in order) let it mix into dough. When it's done w/that stage & going on to rise I stop it take the dough out & put it into a greased loaf pan & let it rise for about an hour. After rising I put the loaf into a 325-350 degree oven & let it bake until it's done(about med. brown). It comes out perfect & tastes delicious!!!!! Read More

The only thing I like about this bread is that there is no added sugar. This bread came out very dry and dense and way too done on the outside. I agree with another reviewer that I just don't think this bread works in all bread machines. Mine is a Sunbeam. I will stick with my other bread recipes. Read More

I doubled the recipe as it is printed. I mixed the dough in our "Kitchen Aid" mixer with the dough hook rather than the bread machine. I added 3 tbsp of wheat gluten 1/2 cup of 12 grain cereal and 1/2 cup of bulgher wheat. (Be careful to maintain the correct moisture balance) I let it rise in the mixing bowl for an hour kneaded it back down and split it into two even loaves. Let it rise in the bread pans for another 40 minutes and then baked at 325 for 35 minutes. This produced about the best whole wheat bread we have ever had. Very flavourful with a definite crunch and great texture. Read More

I couldn't resist but to experiment (over time) with this recipe..75 c water 1 egg 1c wheat flour 1.5c white flour 6 tablespoons honey 1c nuts I was getting dry crumbly bread using fresh flour reducing the water and adding the egg helps. You might add 1/8c of flour depending on the consistancy of the dough on the 2nd kneeding. Read More

Very easy to make everyone loved it! The only thing is that it sank in the middle. I used less yeast as another reviewer recommended but it still sank. Still delicious and smelled great while baking! Read More

Like some other reviewers my loaf sank terribly in the middle. My edges were also a bit too done. The taste is great. My conclusion after following this recipe exactly is that it must work in some bread machines and not work in others. I have a Black and Decker and it does not work well in there:( Give it a try but don't get your hopes up! Read More
