Good bread, toasts well. Scaled recipe up to 1-1/2, and used the dough cycle. First rise in oiled bowl, puched down, & divded into 2 loaf pans, let rise again, and baked at 350 for 30 min. Will definetly use this recipe again.

I LOVE this recipe. I have started using this instead of buying store bread. My kids both love it and so does my picky husband. I use the honey version as I dont like the taste of molasses. I recommend it for anyone with a bread machine they dont use. This recipe will also scale down to a one pound loaf and turns out just right!!!

Great loaf of bread! I don't have a machine so I have been making this by hand . I mix the water and yeast first, add the wet ingredients, then the dry. Knead for 20 minutes, rise 1 hour, punch and form in pan, rise 1 hour (as SponGe has done), then bake at 350 for 1/2 hour. I have tried using all molasses, half molassas and half honey ... both are great. This even worked for me with 100% freshly ground hard red wheat flour! Yum. I make 1 or 2 loaves a week :)

Great bread. Thanks for the recipe - I will be using it from now on. A note: I substituted olive oil for the margarine and it came out great. I notice if I use the same tablespoon for the honey, the oil makes the honey slide right out.

I made the wheat bread using the molasses.
I was out of flax seed so I add 2 tablespoons of wheat germ. The bread came out so great it had a wonderfull texture and taste. I used the Dough cycle on my machine. I shaped the dough in a loaf pan let it rise 40 mins than baked 375 for 20-30 mins.
My family loved this bread I will definetly be making this bread alote :) Thank You so much for the Recipe>3

OH MY GOD!!! This is a great bread recipe. Most are crumbly but this isn't. I just pulled it out of the breadmaker and couldn't resist having a sample. So yummy! I did use the cut back version someone in the comments listed because it's just me eating it. It worked perfectly. Thanks for the awesome bread recipe. I will never pay $5 for a loaf of healthy bread again.

I have a large family and I bake 2 loaves of this almost every day....we eat a lot of bread. This makes great sandwiches and toast.

I have started making this again using whey in place of the water. Its make a moister loaf and tastes great.

Fantastic! I actually used 100% whole wheat pastry flour for all of the flour, and it was light and had a perfect crust. We are using it as our everyday bread now. My husband and all 4 of my kids LOVE it. It makes great toast and sandwiches. I made the honey version, but I'm going to try it with molasses, too. I let the bread machine do the dough part, let it rise for about 45 minutes in a loaf pan, and then bake at 350 for about 25 minutes.
