This was my first time baking bread and I selected this recipe because of the strikingly positive reviews. I am happy to report that I now have 2 loaves of some of the best whole wheat bread I've ever tasted. Excellent, simple recipe that yields a dense yet soft, wholesome, and delectable product. A+
I'm new to breadmaking, but I loved this. I didn't even have brown sugar, but it still turned out great. Slightly sweet, soft, not too dense, and full of a rich, wheat flavor. Everything I make from now on will have to compare to this.
Love, love, love it! Super easy, simple, and delicious. This was my first attempt at whole wheat bread and I am very pleased with the result. The loaf was everything I could ever ask for in a whole wheat bread and the ingredient list is perfect--simple and nothing crazy (ex. potato flakes...gross). I halved the recipe to only make one loaf, because two loaves would have been excessive for my diet. But other than halving the recipe, I did not make any other modifications. I may try using honey instead of brown sugar next time, or both, I'm just a sucker for honey whole wheat bread. So thank you spacholl for sharing this!
Yum! I love the simplicity of this recipe. I halved the recipe to make one loaf and it turned out great! I added more flour when kneading it because the dough seemed a bit sticky. But I'm new to bread baking, so that might just be me... I didn't do the twisty thing, and I made it in my sun oven -- a great way to have home baked bread in the summer without heating up the kitchen. Makes superb toast!
wow...for 100% whole wheat this bread has a very nice tender texture.It was easy to make with a great flavor...1-20-07 to make with a great flavor
Wonderful! Two hot happy loaves of 100% whole wheat are sitting on my cooling rack. Okay, minus a few slices... Highly recommended for anyone who likes 100% whole wheat! And if you don't - try it anyway! You may be converted Canadian wheat is harder than American. If you are in Canada (as I am) you probably won't be able to stir in a full 8 cups of flour, and you shouldn't try. Don't panic! I have two... okay, one and a half loaves sitting happily on my breadboard.
My loaves came out beautifully dense (which I love), but rather salty. Is 1T. of salt truly the measurement. I don't know how much mine was affected by the milk mixture cooling a little too much (pretty much to room temp) and rising times being about doubled. New baby in the house that decided it wasn't bread making time. *grin*
This is a great tasting and easy bread recipe. I use a two rise method for better texture but this is simple and very healthy. Try it!
The taste was wonderful but the loaves were heavy.
WONDERFUL!! This bread came out tasting great, it was very soft and it even kept longer than my store-bought 100% whole wheat bread. Definitely a keeper.
