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.

Good recipe, but be careful to heat the milk all the way to 180 degrees, or use powdered milk, if you want it to rise properly.

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.

This bread is delicious. I love it so much and make it weekly at my house. I use half whole wheat flour to make it healthier. Great recipe!

I also did this bread in my Kitchen Aid mixer. I ended up using a little more flour this way. The result was two beautiful, delicious loaves. I brushed the tops with olive oil before baking. I am so excited about this recipe that I shared my photo! I have never done that before. Very, very easy! Thanks for sharing it!

Great bread and easy too. Being a lazy old fart I started in my KitchenAid bowl with the mixing paddle and switched to a dough hook for step 5. My wife feels strongly about whole wheat so I went 50-50 on the flour. Thank you Vino Girl from a Vino Old Guy Wayne

This is really good! I used 1 envelope of rapid rise yeast and it came out to about 3/4 of a Tbl. My 2 year old devoured a piece very quickly, which says a lot about the recipe. I will make this again, but will try it with some whole wheat flour. Thanks!

This bread was fantastic! I substituted 2 c. whole wheat flour for the flour. My husband and I devoured both loaves very quickly!

kburie, this bread is delicious. I used ground golden flax seeds, and took some liberties with the ingredients (types of flours, including some gluten, and upping the oil). Just had a hunk with nothing on it, fresh from the oven. Yum. This will make great toast and sandwiches.
