We really loved this bread. I used it to make toast this morning, and look forward to having it at lunch in a sandwich using leftover Christmas ham. I made it as written except I used vegetable oil instead of the applesauce, and bread flour instead of the all-purpose flour. This makes a slightly dense loaf with a nice texture that slices easily. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

I used oil for the choice, didn`t have cider vinegar so I used regular. Skipped the onion flakes. for 1/2 cup of the water I used brewed coffee in place of the instant coffee. Which may be why my bread didn`t rise much. It was so very yummy in flavor. The crust was nice a crisp.

We really enjoyed this bread. The fennel and caraway seeds add so much flavor. I did use the olive oil in place of the apple sauce. The texture is wonderful and even slightly warm the bread sliced nicely. This was served with Cider Beef Stew for Two. It also makes wonderful toast.
Wonderful bread!! I made it this morning so we could have it with our lunch sandwiches. I used canola oil as I didn't have applesauce. I also used wheat bran in place of the oat bran and 1 c. whole wheat flour in place of 1 c. all purpose. I don't have a breadmaker, so I just used my KitchenAid mixer. :) Delish!! Thanks for the recipe!
Delicious bread. I chose to use all applesauce and Splenda for the sugar. I used malt vinegar as it was a choice between that or white vinegar. I love the seeds in this and the addition of oat bran is excellent. I'm always trying to work it into things as it's so healthful. It would have been a bit darker but I discovered that all of the instant coffee I keep for cooking had vanished leaving only an empty jar, I think it had help from DS.
