whole wheat flour

To me, this brown bread is PERFECTION. I love it. I made it exactly as the recipe suggests. I'll never make another version again. (just a note: the directions forget to tell you to add the salt listed in the ingredients)
The flavor of the bread was okay though a bit too sweet but the texture was *weird*. It was crumbly and almost grainy. I won't make it again.
Really good. My husband said, "Tastes just like bread out of a can." (If you're confused, that's a good thing.) To keep the kitchen cooler, I used the quick-bread setting on my bread machine. Worked great. Thanks.
Very simple. A dense, chewy bread with a deep flavor. My older son helped me make this in the morning before it got too hot. It was simple enough for him to help with with minimal supervision. I did have to cover this with foil about 20 minutes before it came out because it would have scorched if I hadn't. Good contrast against Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili. NOTE: To make your molasses slip easily from your measuring cup, give it a good spritz with your baking spray. Comes clean like whoa.
Wonderful! Change nothing, this recipe is perfect except add 2/3 c raisins soaked in 1/4 c apple juice for 15-30 minutes. :)
AMAZING! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect. So moist, just a touch of sweet. I will be making this again and again.
I wasn't sure I liked Boston Brown Bread but decided to give it a try - we loved it! The loaf barely lasted 24 hours. The recipe was extremely easy and I liked that there weren't too many ingredients - it took less than 5 minutes to get in the oven. I made a couple of minor changes - 2 cups white flour & 1 cup wheat and tossed in a handful of raisins before baking. I'll definitely be making this again!
I thought this bread was delicious! And, so easy to make, too! I like the sweetness the brown sugar adds. It's not too sweet, but a hint of sweet that you don't find in some brown breads. It'a a winner!
