This was my first time making bread in my new bread machine, and this recipe was a fantastic way to begin. Following reviewer, vo0do0's suggestion, I used 1/2 cup quick oats, 3/4 cup apple cider and 1/2 c water instead of 1 1/4 cups water; and, following reviewer, BrittBliss's suggestion, I used 1 cup of Bread Flour (to increase height), and 1- 1/2 cups Whole Wheat flour. I also used 6 Tablespoons of high grade Maple Syrup, and added 1/4 cup of ground flax seeds. The bread has a slightly crunchy and definitely chewy crust and is wonderfully soft and fluffy inside! Perfect for sandwiches, or toasted or even alone! I ate it toasted with an egg on top. Excellent - eggcellent ;) -! The apple cider made it sweeter, and added flavor so it's a savory sweet bread -- but not too sweet. Though, I imagine it'd be great for French Toast. It's an awesome recipe. Thank you, Envision, and other reviewers! :) Update: I've made this bread 6 times now, and everyone who eats it, loves it! It's a staple now. :)
