chia.....5PLUS stars to this recipe. Literally threw it all in the machine and started it. We were cutting into it before I had it completely outta the pan!! Immediately made another loaf for the morning. It is great toasted with mayo and lettuce and roast beef. This is wonderful...TY
This is the type of bread best eaten hot. I used fresh chives but could't really taste them and the recipe, as is, is definitely a sweet bread due to the sugar with a little bit of a kick coming from the cream cheese but not sweet enough to come into the cake category. It has a very nice texture and cuts well. Easy to make too. As far as its bread qualities go I can't fault it. If I make it again however I would use more herbs to suit my own tastebuds. So its a great bread but I personally like Chia's other bread recipes better. This is the recipe I would like to give 4 1/2 stars. However it is getting 5 stars because other household members really like it and are asking for more and the bread is disappearing within 30 minutes of coming out of the breadmaker.
We loved this bread! I did increase the chives to 2 1/2 Tablespoons and reduced the sugar to 3/4 a tablespoon but otherwise changed no other ingredients. I made it on the dough cycle in my bread machine and then took it out and made into a french bread roll, placed in a warm spot for an hour and then baked at 325 degrees for 24 minutes. Great bread!
