Oh, this bread is SO good ! It has a wonderful crispy crust, with a moist, tender bread. I had no parchment or baking stone; so I baked it on a cookie sheet. This is a premium bakery quality bread.

Have made this bread over and over as it has become our family favorite. I typically use the exact ingredients though I have substituted table salt(1 1/4tsp) when I was out of the other. It was just as wonderful. I have found the parchment paper isn't necessary on a well seasoned stone. When it comes time to bake I sometimes change up the shape of the bread by braiding or making smaller ovals. My children prefer a softer crust so I often brush with butter after baking. LOVE this bread!

I used the exact ingredients except I included a teaspoon of olive oil because I just did a dough cycle in my bread machine-- came out fabulous! Made mini-loaves and the top came out nice and crunchy with a dense, chewy center. Love the addition of whole-wheat flour that's not overpowering. Will definitely make again!

I absolutely love this bread. It reminds me of Panera Whole Wheat Baguette Bread!! I discovered it after I got some Organic 7 Grain Bread flour that I was looking to use. I usually add in a little extra honey to give it an added touch of sweetness. Thanks for the recipe Zetty66

I realized that I misread the amount of salt and was 1/4 tsp. short. It was a little bland so next time I'll add the correct amount. My dough was a little sticky but baked up crisp on the outside with an interior full of spongy holes. I enjoyed mine spread with honey! Thanks for posting, Zetty. Roxygirl

I've made this several times and it always comes out yummy. If you like Portuguese Bread like that found in the New England area, try using Bread Flour in place of the wheat flour. It's really good for sandwiches!

A delicious loaf that was a snap to make! I used my KitchenAid mixer with the dough hook, and kneaded at power level 4 for about 5 minutes. I chose to bake on parchment and that worked out very well. It was a wonderful choice for sandwiches during the football game, and leftovers will be enjoyed as garlic toast with spaghetti tonight. Thanks for sharing :) Nick's Mom
