Great bread! I put everything in the BM and then baked at 375 for 35 min. Loved how light and airy it was. Great toast in the morning.

This bread was excellent! Made it for sandwich bread. My boyfriend likes it as panini bread. In short, good recipe Anne! SUPERB!!!

Fabulous light textured bread with yummy yummy texture. Let's just say that a friend of mine gave me a gallon of cracked wheat to use and I was going to give half of it away, but after making this - I'm going to keep all of it! I cut this recipe in half and ran it on the dough cycle then baked it in my stoneware bread pan - amazing!
