This recipe just makes sense. A marriage between potato, wheat, and honey. The perfect homemade bread! I did have to add aprox 1C extra white flour to make the dough workable, but the texture is amazing as well as the flavor. Excellent texture, color, aroma. This bread was light and moist. In my opinion exactly how homemade bread ought to be. Read More

i don't like this bread - it tastes okay - but it didn't rise very much and it's so dense - i don't care for the texture... the flavor is okay - i like the honey but i probably will not make this again. Read More

Excellent bread recipe, will be my go to for wheat bread from now on. Has a great texture, very soft instead of heavy and dense as wheat bread tends to be. My only changes were to use butter instead of margarine, increased the honey to 1/3 cup and I did need extra flour but it's super humid in KC. Made three big loaves, one of which was gone within a couple of hours. Used my kitchen aide to do the kneading with the bread hook for 10mins. For those who said the bread didn't rise well, you might want to alter to steps and proof your yeast with the warm water separately, then add the rest of your ingredients. Also kneading thoroughly makes for better crumb and structure. Read More

This is the best whole wheat bread recipe I have ever tried. I did need to add one more cup of flour. I used bread flour and King Arthur's whole wheat flour. The bread is moist and has a good flavor. Read More

This is darn good bread! Made it in my bread machine took it out before the second rise and cooked it from there. Might do a little less yeast next time due to the fact it fell a little in the middle. I'd do a 35-45 minute second rise instead of the hour the recipe calls for. Did 1/2 cup milled flaxseed and only 1 1/2 cup (Bread) flour. Fantastic flavor! Will be great with tonights soup! Read More

This is a wonderful recipe. I found it to be ver easy and my family loved it. The texture made it perfect for sandwiches the next day. We shared 1 loaf with a neighbor who is now asking when I'll be making it again. Definitely recommend trying this one. Read More

This is the best (and easiest) homemade bread recipe! My nine year old loves to help me make it. It slices up nicely for sandwiches or to just eat with butter--yum! Read More
