Beautiful and delicious. I also used the dough cycle on my bread machine; makes homemade bread almost effortless! I agree-the best wheat bread I've made. My teenagers were suspicous of the "wheaty" look, but also loved this bread.

The best wheat bread I have made. I used the dough cycle and baked as one large loaf. A must try.

Oh my goodness! This bread is so incredibly delicious! It has a wonderful slightly sweet flavour and a lovely appearance. I baked as directed in 2 loaves. One loaf is the perfect size for 2 people and I froze the other loaf for later. I made the dough in my bread machine also. This went perfectly with Healthy pumpkin soup #22047. I will use this recipe many more times!

Fantastic recipe. I used 1 cup of all purpose and 2 cups of whole wheat. I also used kitchen scissors to make the diagonal slashes on the bread. Worked perfectly.

Made this tonight. It was delicious! I'm trying so hard not to eat the entire loaf. I dipped a slice in olive oil and garlic. Oh. My. Goodness. Thanks for the recipe.

I'm afraid this just didn't work for me, The bread came out very dense. I could have fixed this on the next loaf, but the flavor was just lacking, so I won't bother making this again.

Very good, indeed. However I would like to make a note about making the slashes in the top after rising but before baking...I used a very sharp knife on my beautifully risen loaves and they promptly fell completely flat. I was so disappointed! From now on I'll be putting the slashes in BEFORE I let them rise the last time. Otherwise a great recipe as is. Thanks!

Very good bread. Mine came out of the ABM rather sticky, so the two loaves I made were not so beautiful. However, looks aside, the bread was very tasty. Made it with Curly's Beer Cheese Soup for a filling meal.

We all love it. I rolled the dough into sub size pieces and baked, to use for sandwiches. Great toasted too!

I made this in my bread machine from start to finish and it tastes fabulous! Thanks for sharing! I'm sure it will be great if I shape and bake the loaves also.... may do in the future if time allows...
