In response to a request, this was found in the cookbook that came with my Toastmaster Bread Machine. I haven't tried it. Cook time includes mixing and rising time in machine, and this will vary according to your brand of machine.

This recipe was very good. The texture turned out light and airy - almost like store bought. I used honey instead of molasses and added about 1/4 cup wheat germ. It's wonderful with thin sliced cheese, or chicken salad. This also inspired me to create a pecan bread recipe that turned out great, as well. I'll post it to share.
This makes a wonderful loaf of bread which slices easily. The only change I made is that I used a packet of instant maple flavored oatmeal, because I had run out of my regular oatmeal. I also used quick rise yeast with this recipe for the first time and it worked very well. This bread makes a great sandwich, and I used it for French toast this morning - oh, yum! I could easily sit down and eat the rest of this with a little butter, no problem!!
This was fantastic!!! dad loved this hearty bread...and he is the guru of healthy heavy breads. I did substitute the same amount of oatmeal for bran...just because dad wanted that instead. Other than that I followed it to the T. And it is good! A healthy and tasty choice!
