    superblondieno2's Note:

    I wanted something different than the usual wheat bread, so I made this recipe with half wheat and half white flour and I am so glad I did. The best part is shaping the bread. I was scared to at first, but it actually turned out to be very simple and fun! The herbs give this bread such a tasty and unique flavor! **Also I didn't use rapid rise yeast, so I had to let the dough rise a lot longer then said here. About an hour for each time**

      This bread was very tasty, and it made such a pretty presentation with the braid! I liked the mixture of herbs in this. It ended up a little bit drier than I prefer though. Thanks superblodieno2!

      What a yummy bread! I served this with dinner, and the only complaint was that it wasn't fresh from the oven! I did as you recommended and made it half white/ half wheat flour, and then because I wasn't sure how to knot it, I just looped it into a round loaf. The texture was lovely and dense, the smell while it was baking was heavenly, and the taste was just right. Thank you for a yummy yummy bread recipe!

      I made this using the bread machine through the dough cycle then baked in the oven. The recipe was easy to work with and rose beautifully. I was unsure on how to knot the braid to form the round loaf so just made a long braided loaf. Thank you for sharing your recipe! Made for ZWT3.
