WOW. I love the texture and taste. The softness and density was just right and sliced beautifully without falling apart. The flavor was great...some breads just don't seem to have much flavor. Followed the recipe except for I used 1 c. of white bread flour and 2 c. AP flour. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will make it often.
I made this in my bread machine. I put the (whole) milk, honey and sugar in first with the yeast and let it set for about 10 minutes. Then I added my flour and butter. I always use wheat bran in bread. I like the texture. I added way more honey (probably triple) and about 3 Tbs of raw organic sugar. My daughter loves it and I love the texture. Best bread yet! I have a few modifications to make next time as it rose too much and the top collapsed a bit but nonetheless yummy bread.
Love love love this bread! I added extra honey and it was phenomenal! This is now my go to! Husband approved (:
Tasted good, but needed significantly more honey. I only like it toasted, too. With honey in the title, I expected more of a sweet flavor from it, but I should have suspected with the small amount asked for in the recipe, that this wouldn't have a sweet taste. If I come back to the recipe it will require some adjustments to get an enjoyable result.
Came out marvelous. thanks for sharing this recipe
This worked well for me and my family. In a couple of loaves I added lots of dill, minced onion, and pressed garlic to the dry ingredients and it turned out really well. I used 2 tsp regular yeast and increased the honey. I like a sweeter taste. Thank you for sharing!
A nice, simple, basic bread. Could not detect the honey, though. Still a good bread. Thanks.
Pulled out my BreadMan Bread machine from the basement because the weather is cold and I wanted to try a new recipe. I love this recipe. I didn't have to add any additional milk or flour it was perfect the first time out. It is baking in the bread machine right now and I can't wait to try it. The dough looks so perfect..a real keeper..
I would like to update my review. I have made this twice now. The first time my old bread machine ruined it by making it too done. I now have a new bread machine and made this and it was excellent as a white bread! It had great flavor and was nice and soft. I have made a few white bread recipes in my bread machine and this is so far my favorite recipe. I would love to see next time if I can add in more honey and not ruin it! I will test it out! Thanks for the recipe!
My son recently bought me a bread machine and this is the first recipe that I have tried and it seemed to turn out just fine for my first attempt at making bread in it. I used all purpose flour instead of bread flour, even though the directions for my bread machine didn't recommend using all-purpose flour, it turn out great. I wonder if adding more honey would change the reliability of this recipe, because I think that I would have like it better if it had been a little sweeter. My grandmother and aunt were expert bread makers who made bread from scratch daily in their younger years and I remember that their bread was much sweeter. My kids liked it so I'll probably use this recipe again. Next time I'll try using bread flour.
