I think the ingredients list for this recipe needs some work. There was not nearly enough liquid and when I added one cup of water I was only able to mix in about 5 cups of flour. Also, there is absolutely no maple flavor in the dough or in the finished bread (and I used maple syrup my grandpa made himself, so I know it was good quality). This bread just tastes like regular oatmeal bread. But as oatmeal bread, it is quite good.
