I increase buttermilk to 1 3/4 cups. I also mix several batches of the dry ingredients (not including yeast) and store it in disposable containders in my pantry. When it is time to make a loaf, the buttermilk, butter, and yeast are a snap to add!

I think there is a mistake in this recipe...I only added 1/3 cup wheat flour to this and it worked fine. Use only 1/3 cup and it will turn out!

Delicious is an understatement for this recipe. I can't make it fast enough for my family. Its tasty for toast, too. I add 2T vital wheat gluten and get a nice high, tight textured, dense bread with awesome flavor. What more can be said about this recipe? Just follow the directions and let your bread machine do its work. I set my machine for the dough cycle, then take the dough out, shape it, place it in a 9X5 pan, then bake at 375 degrees for 33 minutes exactly.I just sit back and wait for a pefect loaf every time!Thanks, Debbie. I will make this again and again and again.....;0)

This is the first loaf of bread where my husband admitted that he was glad we got a bread machine. Great for my left over buttermilk from holiday baking!!!!!!!

I have had mixed success with two bread machines now, but this recipe has proven itself time and again. Plus it solves the riddle of what to do with leftover buttermilk from my holiday baking!

This bread was excellent. However, based on other reviews and other bread machine recipes I have made, I lowered the bread flour to 2 cups and added 2 T. of Gluten. The bread was moist and tasty.

I tried this today and boy it flopped. I used my bread machine and added ingredients in order listed and my bread machine(got for Christmas) couldn't even get it to mix all the way it was so dry. Much of it stuck to the pan and the rest never did get mixed even close to what it should have been. Maybe my bread machine needed the ingredients assembled differently.

This is one of THE best bread recipies I've found in many years of baking bread. It is as moist as 'store-bought', which my kids do prefer. We make the dough in the bread machine, then divide the dough into 2 bread pans. Then we cover it with plastic plastic wrap and put it to rise in the refrigerator overnight. By morning, it is perfect for baking in the oven (350 for 35 min 'til internal temp of 190 degrees). Also, it's the perfect recipe for white bread. Just substitute white bread flour for the rye. Thanks very much for sharing this great recipe. Love the sour rye flavor!
