Wonderful! Love using molasses -- good iron content! I bumped up the nutrition with 1/2 cup wheat germ, 1/2 cup ground flax seed, 2 cups whole wheat flour and used Whole Wheat setting -> more dense of course, but very tasty. THANKS!
I don't have a bread machine, so I proofed the yeast in the water, then added molasses, butter and warm milk. Used my kitchenaid mixer to mix in flour and then knead. I'd doubled the recipe, so I let it rise once, then punched down and separated into the two loaves and let rerise, then baked at 350 for about 35 minutes. Lovely color, nice crust and wonderul texture, but it seems to be missing something. I might try adding some oatmeal or wheat germ next time to jazz it up a little.
this was great! I only used whole wheat flour and put the bread on my whole wheat settings and it turned out perfectly.
This is a soft bread, with a delicious, mellow molasses flavor. If you are making it by hand, double the recipe- one loaf wont last long! My dough didn't need the entire 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour, so if you're kneading it in, add it in increments as you knead. I heated the milk, water, and molasses together on the stove, then added it to the yeast and let it foam up for a bit before adding the melted butter, salt and flours.
I absolutely love this bread!! It is sweet with a great even loaf. It bakes up beautifully in my bread maker. I too loved it with a dilly egg salad. It toasts great as well. My new favorite!
The molasses contributes a very unique, earthy flavor to this soft bread. I didn't change a thing, and the result was a perfect bread for sandwiches or toast. Be aware that although the texture is nice and moist, it does crumb significantly when cut. When we just couldn't eat it fast enough to keep it from getting stale, I took those leftover pieces that weren't fresh anymore, and gave them new life in the Bread Pudding II recipe from this site. Wow! That was the best bread pudding I've ever eaten. No matter what you use this for, it could not possibly be better.
This is a nice, hefty bread. it's rather soft, which bf loves, but still has a flavor that reminds me of a a whole wheat loaf. I used the bread machine to mix the dough and baked in the oven at 350 for 30 mins. Worked perfectly. Thanks for the recipe!
Fantastically yummy! I will definitely use more molasses next time because my husband adores molasses, but this was just great. Thank you for a wonderful bread recipe.
