      Excellent recipe! I have used it four times now. It is fantastic toasted as that brings out the flax flavor even more. My DH loves it.

      Twice I have substitutied 2 cups whole wheat flour instead of white and it's really good with that. I also have added a handful or two of whole flax seeds for extra texture. I have doubled the yeast the last couple of times now that helps it raise to a better size. My first loaves were a little smaller than I wanted.

      This is very good bread....but it didn't rise much for me for some reason. I will be making again but trying the regular double rise yeast.
