What a fantastic loaf! I didn't have any olive oil, so I used sunflower oil with an excellent result. You didn't specify what kind of "wheat flour" you used, so I used white whole wheat. This Recipe gets the El Hubbito "You can make that Again" award!

I was not able to taste my bread as I gave it away as a gift. I mixed the dough in the bread machine using 2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast to equal the 1 package of active dry yeast. I did have to add quite a bit of extra flour while it was kneading in the bread machine. After the dough cycle, I took it out and put it in a 9" loaf pan. I let it rise again for about 40 minutes. Then baked it in a convection oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. My loaf did not rise high like many other chefs mentioned. It turned out like the photos. Good recipe.

Nice recipe, very high tasty loaf. I baked it in the oven as is my habit when making bread in the ABM. It was a little coarse; I might have let it raise too much. Thanks for posting. . . . Janet

Wonderful! I haven't used my bread machine for actually baking bread for years because it usually makes the crust too thick and dry - but my oven is out of commission at present and I really wanted some fresh bread. This has a great texture and tastes really good. The crust stayed soft as well. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks!

This works even at near sea level. A lovely, light, tasty loaf. I didn't have any wheat flour, so I just used bread flour. I threw in an egg just because I have a lot of eggs.

I too have played with this reciep since tagging it for Zaar tag. It has become a faovrite. I do not use the lemon juice and only mix it in the bread machine. If I need/want a denser, heavier bread I use bread flour so depending on what I want the loaf for is what kind of flour I use. Carrie..thanx for an excellant bread!

Wonderful tasting bread CookbookCarrie! I made this in my Zojirushi home baker bread machine, but used only 2 tsp bread machine yeast, and used 2 tbsp Canola oil, olive oil is just too overpowering when used in my bread machine, I added a couple of tablespoons of wheat germ also, and cut the salt back to 1-1/2 tsp and I did add the 1 tsp lemon juice. I'll be making this again! it was delicious and rose just perfectly, nice and high without hitting the top of my machine. Thanks for sharing!....Kitten:)
