I have been looking for a recipe like this for so long! It was wonderful. I only made one loaf and didnt have time to cook it for the whole 40-45 min (more like 30) but it was still delicious. Next time I make it I will cook it the whole time because mine was a little too dense/moist. Also, I used rapid rise yeast, so I combined all the dry and then all the wet but it still turned out great. Next time I'll make all three loaves. Thanks!!!!

I wasn't sure how these would be received by my family, since we usually have white bread, but I'm branching out. Wow! Once I got DD to see past the color, she said they were great, and ate more bread than soup. :) I made one loaf and 12 rolls, and they came out super soft and tasty. I was worried that the dough smelled too "molassas-y", but once it baked, it was just right. I also used 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 AP, and it was perfect. Thanks for helping me expand my bread-making horizons!

Great taste and texture and made three large high loaves that were gobbled up in no time. Thanks for posting!

Very good bread, I enjoyed it most warm slathered in butter... ;). Actually I managed to cut the recipe to make just 1 loaf without too much of a problem. I did miscalculate the salt, used too little but will do better next time. Thanks so much!

This recipe is easy and gives an excellent bread. The only change I made was to use instant yeast and added it to the flour. It will be a favorite recipe with our family. Thanks.

Wow this bread is wonderful, it rises great and tastes wonderful warm! I did not even have to let it rise the usual 90 minutes after 60 it had doubled. After a rough start I got the hang of this and it was simple, the dough is a sticky dough so keep your hands floured. Next time I will be making this with my kitchenaid mixer. I got three huge loaves of bread and this will be a family favorite. Thanks for sharing and helping me with this great recipe.
