I love this bread! I have tried lots of bread machine recipes recently and this so far is my favorite! I do not like sweet sandwich bread so I decreased the honey to 1 T and left the salt as called for in the recipe. Next time I will add some sunflower seeds for some crunch. It was just to my liking for sandwiches, a hint of salt and not too sweet. I might make it with all the honey if I was going to use it for french toast or something, though. Excellent bread. Oh yeah, I didn't bake it in the oven--I don't have time for that last step, so I just baked it in the bread machine and the crust turned out crispy. Yum!
I was wanting some homemade bread so, started to do a search that would use the ingredients I had on hand.When I came across this one, and decided to make it.Since wheat bread isn't a particular favorite around here,all white flour was used.After reading CarrolJ's review the salt was reduced to 1 teaspoon and continued on with the recipe as it was written.After placing in the prepared loaf pan,I let it rise for 1 hour and it just rose wonderfully. Baked at the temp. suggested in Step 3 for about 30 minutes and it was perfect.Thank you for posting a recipe that will be made again." Keep Smiling :) "
I was a little disappointed in this recipe although I think i know why. It tasted a little salty to me. I love salt...but I discovered not in bread. Next time I will decrease the salt to using only 1 teaspoon. I think that perhaps the baking soda + 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt caused the problem. I also used all bread flour since I don't care for the taste of wheat flour. I will make this recipe again and hope for better results.
Excellent bread. I used a stand mixer and put an egg-wash on the loaf with oatmeal flakes before baking. Outstanding taste.
This is wonderful! I made the dough in the machine and then baked in the oven (first time I have not let it bake in the machine, but I do have to admit, the texture when it comes out is not nearly as good as when it goes into the oven! I am a convert) I used the milk and lemon juice as buttermilk substitute, and otherwise followed the recipe to a T, using King Arthur Flour. I accidentally let it rise an additional cycle because I forgot the dough, but it came out gorgeous and springy - I'll add the extra rise in every time! Spread some butter on top when it came out for some sheen. What a gorgeous loaf - I can't stop eating it! Man cannot live on bread alone? I think not!
I absolutely loved this bread. I loved the texture and the hint of sweetness. I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect. BTW, it made wonderful toast this morning. Thank you, beccalynn, for the newest addition to my favorite bread recipe file.
Just perfect for me! Hearty and lots of flavor. I served it with ham and beans and it was awesome. I'll be having some for toast after while!
RedAppleGuy recommended your recipe and I am so glad he did. As my Ds said- " Mom thi sis a 10 star loaf andmake it again tomorrow. Oh and if you make this all the time you don't need to buy any other bread." I must say that is high accolades from my son. Thank you for a repeater recipe!
Amazing bread!! I made it by hand, because I don't have a bread machine. Instead of honey I used agave nectar, and also I used milk and lime juice instead of buttermilk, and turns out wonderful. Thanks for the recipe, this one is a keeper.
Beautiful, easy bread! Definately a new favourite recipe. I added 1/4 cup sunflower seeds and 1/4 cup flax seeds to the machine at the last minute, and it turned out wonderful. Thanks for the great recipe! Made for All New Cookbooks Tag.
