This bread turned out so delicious! Great texture and nice balance of wheat and honey flavors. My dough was pretty sticky after it came together in the bread maker so I added another 1/2 cup of white flour. I also added 3 tbsp. of wheat gluten. My bread also took a long time to rise... about 1 1/2 hours. I should have let it go for 2. I'd probably use white bread flour next time instead of the all-purpose but the recipe is great as is. Thanks!
This is a "Really Yummy Wheat Bread" I am giving a 5 star for the sweetness and the texture this bread has. My problem I had with this bread is that it took way longer for the bread to rise than recipe states. Took mine about 3 or 4 hours with a cloth towel cover while sitting on top of a warm stove. But its still delicious and I love the texture as I mentioned. I will keep the recipe for future making :) Thanks for sharing the recipe!
