WOW!! This was the best wheat bread I have ever made or eaten! It was moist and dense - but not dense like my regular wheat baked goods. LOVED it!!
This bread is just about the best I've ever made! It is so tender and moist. There were a few changes that I made because I ran out of the ingredients. I used half honey and half molasses. Also, I realized I didn't have any potatoe flakes and so I used instant maple cream of wheat. I also used white wheat berries instead of the red. I also ran the cooked berries through my food processor so the berries wouldn't be noticed by my family. I really like the bread machine for the ease of kneading and mixing and prefer the oven for baking bread because it tastes better and so this recipe was exactly what I was looking for.
Picked up a breadmaker for free at a garage sale the other day. I rarely buy bread, maybe some sourdough a couple times a year..but thought maybe I could make something healthy without flax! This recipe came out great first time. I did not use potato flakes (the ones available at my market had many ingredients I couldn't identify). The crust was crispy and the bread tender. The texture was perfect. I did feel it was a bit bland. I am making my second batch tonight, with molasses and brown sugar rather than honey. Great recipe. I used Uncle Bob's organic wheat flower and King Arthur bread flour.
