I have been on a quest to find a recipe for the brown bread we make in the Maritimes and I am hoping this is it. LOL I am posting for safe keeping . Have not made this yet but will as soon as what is here is eaten up. This is from the Robin hood flour website. This is for a Bread Machine. NOTE: I have finally made this bread . I did add about 1/2 cup extra bread flour during the mixing in the ABM. I only use the dough setting . Then removed from the ABM added about 1/4 cup more with a very light knead, placed in the loaf pan let rise about 45 minutes and then baked. It make a HUGE loaf. Next time I will make a smaller loaf and a few buns ( probably 6 smallish ones) We really enjoyed this bread . Not overly sweet or yeasty tasting and very light and fluffy. The prep time is approximate since each bread machine varies

I agree with Criseydes's Mom. This bread definitely needs a little more flour. I added in almost a full cup, which might've been a little too much. The taste is really nice, though.

This bread had a great taste, but collapsed in the middle which means there was not enough dry ingredients to support the liquid. I would maybe add 2 cups of whole wheat flour next time This could be my bread maker and have nothing to do with the recipe though :) Thanks for a great starter recipe!
