Thank you for this recipe. I had a nice day making it today. The only thing I did different was to use a regular packet of yeast. I think next time, I will dissolve the yeast and honey in some of the milk (warmed a little.) Also maybe use a little less salt. I was looking for a simple, good tasting, nutritious bread recipe and this was it. Julie. Oh, on second thought ---it could be the salted butter I put on top of the slice of bread I ate -- maybe it's the butter that's too salty!
I loved this bread, it was so soft inside and crunchy on the outside. I threw 1/2 cup water on the elements in the oven ten minutes into the baking to get the outer crust to crisp up and it worked great. I also added some caraway seeds to the mix and it really bumped up the taste. Plus I used a regular packet of yeast to this bread, not a compressed cake. I used agave syrup instead of honey. I didn't need the 6 cups of flour either. I used spelt and wheat bread flour. This is an all round easy and delicious bread recipe.
