I was looking for recipes to use my extra buttermilk and found this one-and I'm so glad I did! I followed recipe exactly for one loaf and for the second loaf I used 1 cup whole wheat flour plus 2 cups bread flour and I added minced garlic and black pepper. Both loaves were wonderful and the buttermilk really adds some zip-great for sandwiches! Thank you for a wonderful recipe!!! Update: leftovers also make great croutons-toss bread cubes w/ evoo, sprinkle w/ seasoned salt and bake at 350F for 30 minutes-delicious!!!

Very nice bread! The crust was a little chewy(in a good way!)and the middle was soft and fluffy. This bread makes for some wonderful sandwiches! I set the bread machine on 'light crust' and it came out perfect. Thank you!!

We have tried a number of recipes for bread machine bread and so far this is the BEST! I used multigrain bread flour and the results were outstanding...nice dark crust with a fluffy white interior. Give this one a try...it's going in MY cookbook!
