Indeed this bread was very robust had the good flavor of whole wheat rye and a very very subtle taste of molasses. Next time I bake it though I'll use the whole wheat setting of my machine so that it rises a bit more. P.S.: as already mentioned dough will rise hugely during the first knead but not that much after the second one. Read More

Although it always tastes great I've tried this recipe 3 times and it always over-rises during the 'rise' phase and collapses during baking. This is a typical symptom of forgetting the salt so on try 2 I was SURE to add the salt. Same problem. I gave it one last try with same result. Read More

I made this as written it made a nice light loaf with a nutty taste. The humidity is low now in January but I will definitely decrease the yeast in the summer - every loaf rises too much then. But for now it was perfect. Edit: Since my review I've made this countless times; it's my favourite bread recipe. Even my gluten-intolerant mother in law can't resist it!! Read More

Not the best whole wheat I've had but pretty close. I substituted white whole wheat for the rye flour and did 1 1/2 T honey and 1/2 T molasses. I omitted the sugar (mainly because I forgot) and used butter instead of margarine. I also baked it in the oven instead of the bread machine. Worked great. I also added some gluten to the mixture. It was still a bit sticky as dough and a bit crumbly cooked but not terribly so. I will likely use this again. Read More

I really liked this one. I baked it in an 8 x 4 pan in a 350 oven for 30 minutes. I let it rise twice and added about 1/4 c. gluten to it as well. I could taste the rye and molasses but they're not overpowering. Read More

I tried this for the first time last night. It was easy to prepare and the results were fantastic! I did the second rising in a baking pan and baked it at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. It rose beautifully and has a nice light taste. This is a keeper for sure! Thanks for sharing. Read More
