Loved this bread. It rose much quicker than usual so I let it go a bit too much. Will check it sooner next time. Loved it with jam for breakfast.
Made this for the second time and it's excellent! This time I used white whole wheat flour and it's so good I'm making a second batch to share! Thanx for sharing!
Loved this bread! Thanks.......
