Pretty good no-nonsense basic bread. Unfortunately, I didn't have honey so I used 3T sugar (next time I'll add more since I like a sweet loaf). Crusty, fairly good crumb. Made a 1 1/2 lb. loaf. I would also make the crust a bit darker, but that's personal preference:)

I have had my bread machine for years and this is the very best recipe I have ever come across. I have always preferred to take it out and let it raise in a loaf pan. EXCELLENT

I have had my bread machine for less than 24 hours. This is the first bread recipe I made in my new machine and it turned out great! We are enjoying sandwiches today on our homemade bread. I think there is a lot of homemade bread in our future! : ) Thanks for a great recipe!

This bread is so yummy. Great texture. I used the dough setting. Then gave it's shape and let it rise 30 minutes. And then baked it at 350 for 30 minutes. Thanks MakeMineCadburys. Made for I recommend tag game

Made this bread last night to have for toast this morning for breakfast. It was very good toasted and DH enjoyed it when making a sandwich. I dont have a light crust setting on my bread machine so I used the normal setting and it baked up perfectly. This recipe will be added to my ABM favorites. Made and reviewed for KK's Chef's Pick Tag Game.

I made this to go along with Beef Stew for our dinner. This is a wonderful rustic and crusty bread. It comes together quickly and easily and the flavor is great! I'm going to try it again using 2 1/2 cups white bread flour and 1 cup of wheat flour. Can't wait to see how it turns out! Thanks MMC! I'll use this recipe again! Made for Chef's Pick Tag

This is a great bread recipe. The crust is crisp and the crumb is soft and light. For some reason the dough seemed to come together better than others I've tried recently. This is a definite keeper. Thanks for posting! Made for KK's Chef's Pick.

For someone who has not used her bread machine for over a year this bread turned out perfect for me. I do not have a light crust setting so just used my standard setting and it was a pretty golden brown. I liked the texture of the bread a lot too - just perfect! Thanks for posting!

This bread is probaly the "BEST" I have ever made with my bread machine yet. I didn't have a light crust setting so I just used normal setting and it worked out great. Thanks for the recipe!
