Questions & Replies

  1. Measurements: how does ml convert to gr.?
  2. Is it supposed to be grams instead of ml for the dry ingredients?


  1. Made the dough in the bread machine and baked 4 round loaves on a pizza stone for some nice artisan bread. The secret to a great crust is using a water spray bottle to create steam during the first 10 min. of baking.
  2. Wow! With a diabetic in the family, this opens all kinds of possibilities - bread pudding, french toast, etc. I don't have a bread machine so I just mixed it the way I do regular bread, let it rise, put it in a greased loaf pan, let it rise again and baked it at 350 for 38 minutes. It's got a nice texture and mild taste and was super easy to make. This will become a staple in our household.
  3. Oh YUM! I tried this because we have cut white flour from our diet and are eating low GI (and have lost lots of weight). This bread is delicious. I make it again and again and share it with co-workers. They love it too. It's a beautiful colour too! Thank you!
  4. Great bread....I did use my bread machine but then I baked it in the oven on 375 for about 30-35 min. with sesame seeds all over the top...its a very filling bread. My friends and family are always wondering when Im going to bake another large batch lol
  5. This has a wonderful flavour and crumb!! I plan on using this bread as our "white" bread, as we are trying not to use alot of white flour. Thank you for posting this excellent recipe. It deserves 10 stars!!!
