"I did this on my dough cycle in my bread machine and then baked it in my oven. If you do it this way and with almost 4 cups of flour, make sure you put it in a bigger loaf pan. This is a wonderful, slightly sweet wheat bread and I have to agree with PinkPanther, it did rise very quickly for a wheat bread."
"We liked. I used 2 Tbs molasses not 3, and plowed milk instead of skim but used equal amount water- 2tbs powered milk. I did rapid wheat cycle 2lbs light crust. The crust was more done than I like so might try 1.5 lbs next time? Or more yeast so it rises more? Not sure. Thanks will make again."
"This is the first recipe I have used that makes a fluffy delicious loaf. I used homey instead of molasses and recplaced 1/4 cup of brad flour with wheat germ. Beautiful result. Will probably use less sugar next time."
"This is the first loaf of wheat bread I've made that actually rose! It's a beautiful thing! It does have a sweet flavor, which is fantastic for breakfast, but it also pairs well with savory sandwich options. I did swap the sugar for honey and used canola oil. I'll be making this bread often. It was a big hit at my house!"
"This is the best whole wheat recipe I've ever made in my bread machine. It was light, rose beautifully, and tasted fantastic -- the closest to store-bought texture I've ever made. I did a few treaks: used reconstituted dry milk, used only 1/4 tsp. salt and accordingly lowered the yeast to 2 tsp. because I'm on a low sodium diet, and I substituted 1/2 cup of the bread flour with 1/4 cup flax seed meal and 1/4 cup unprocessed bran. Delicious! I will definitely be making this bread again and again!"
"I was looking for a recipe that I can consume my molasses & whole wheat, and I found this. I used half bread flour & regular flour. Perfect snack due to it's sweet flavor. I like it lightly toasted & put a little bit of butter or cream cheese. Thank you for the great recipe. See the photos (2)."
"I substituted whole wheat flour for the bread flour just to see if I could get good results. It broke my bread machine (LOL), but it was worth it (I get them for $2 each at my local resale shop). This was so yummy. My kids even loved it and they are partial to white bread. I'm sure they would melt faster than the butter if I made it as written. Thanks for posting this. If I use all whole wheat again, I'll knead it by hand."
"I have made this several times and just love it. Today I used 3 tbsp of honey instead of the sugar, and replaced a 1/2 cup of the bread flour with a 1/4 cup each of flax seed meal and unprocessed wheat bran. Delicious!"
"Our favorite bread recipe. I serve it with soup--any kind. My family looks forward to it, from oldest to youngest. Great recipe."
"I will use this recipe often. The bread turned out perfectly! It sliced thin for sandwiches and smelled heavenly while cooking. I followed the recipe except that I used all whole grain flour and no bread flour (didn't have any on hand), used Smart Balance Spread in place of the butter and I used sea salt for the salt. It was a picture perfect loaf!"
"This is the most amazing whole wheat bread. I use regular yeast, and it rises more than any other whole wheat loaf I've made. Thanks!"
"I followed this recipe except I used Splenda instead of sugar. I used the Basic setting on my machine and the loaf baked up into the handle! Next time I'll use just 2 tsp of yeast and maybe try using olive oil in place of margarine to save calories. This made a delicious, beautiful loaf that tastes great and will be wonderful toasted. Will definitely make again!"
"This was a very good wheat bread. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is due to the loaf coming out very small. It just didn't seem to rise very well for me. I will definately make again. Hopefully with better results. Thank you for sharing."
"First time I've used my bread machine and this recipe came out great. Wonderful flavor ."
"This is amazing! Perfectly flavoured,easy to cut,moist...I was looking for a loaf to make for everyday and,this recipe is perfect."
"This is the best whole wheat bread recipe I've tried so far. It was delicious, and my kids just loved it. The consistency of the bread is perfect - firm but not dry and the flavor is excellent. I switched the amounts of whole wheat and bread flour, and it still came out great."
"Fabulous flavor. I use ap flour instead of bread, and add gluten to make it "bread flour", but I forgot the gluten, so it didn't rise as much, but it is still light and mouth-watering good. I also substituted 3/4c ground flax for the ww flour, and used old milk instead of the water/milk combo. Excellent recipe!"
"I don't care for whole wheat bread, period. But this bread is definitely edible! This is the new bench mark for my bread machine."
"Awsome bread and very easy to make in bread machine. I always get compliments! I needed to add less yeast and adjust my setting on my bread machine to a 2 pound loaf. It's a winner!"
"Wonderful loaf! It had a nice sweetness, and a good wheat taste; not overly or underly strong. I has a little bit of a buttery taste, as well. It's moist, dense, and had a nice crust. Thank you!"
