Wow, I tell you, this is good bread. I cut these into thick slices and made french toast with it, and what a great flavor. Because not only did you have maple syrup on top of the french toast, YOU HAD IT IN THE BREAD. I can only say WOW. Thank you for posting.
This was a huge hit here. Without exception we all gave the exceptional bread 5 star votes. It rises like crazy for a huge loaf of of mildly sweet bread. I can't wait to have s big slice toasted for breakfast. Thanks mike for a recipe with a dough that is a dream to work and tastes wonderful. Made for Photo Tag.
Excellent bread! The recipe makes a big 9x5" loaf with great taste and light, fluffy texture. I used a KitchenAid stand mixer for kneading and baked the loaf in a 350-degree oven for 45 minutes. It was necessary to add an extra 1/3 cup flour. I used a combination of bread flour, all-purpose flour, and a little whole-wheat flour. Thanks!
This bread has probably the best texture of any I've cooked in my bread machine, it's lovely and soft and not too dense which is usually the case with my bread. I thought with the maple it would be sweet but it's not really, just a lovely bread, it's great toasted with jam & cream cheese. I used medium bake setting & sweet bread as the bread type on my machine. Thanks Mikekey.
Very tasty. I set it up to be ready in the morning. I think it could have used a tablespoon more water as the top of the loaf was very rough. Next time I'll make it during the day so I can see if it needs more water.
I had just picked up some fresh yeast, and wanted to make some bread. This was good ! Not very maple-y, but just a hint of sweetness. DD loved it; she had a warm piece out of the oven with a little butter and jam - she gave it 2 thumbs up. Will definitely keep this one around ! Thanks for posting.
I thought this bread was excellent! My 19 month old bread hound concurs as well! I had to add about 4 heaping tablespoons of flour during kneading because it seemed too wet, but it turned out well and rose very high!
