whole wheat flour
active dry yeast
1 (1 ounce) package
dry onion soup mix
This goes down as the family's favorite! Suggestions: Use 1-1/2 cups bread flour and 1-1/2 cups whole wheat to make a lighter bread. I let bread machine do whole thing. Why take out of machine to let rise & then bake ? Make sure to choose whole wheat cycle which gives more time to rise.
Strong flavor - ok
Very dense bread, didn't rise much. Tasty but not outstanding.
One of the best wheat bread recipes I have made in my 50 years as a cook/baker. My hubby, and inlaws, grandkids, love it! I recommend this if you wish to impress somebody.
I did add a bit more water to the recipe,,
The dough rose beautifully and the aroma was wonderful! I made one round loaf , after it came from the oven, I put real cream sweet butter on the top of the crust. Thanks for offering this special bread recipe.
Moist tasty bread. I think substituting some rye flour for wheat would be good. Did not rise much with no white flour. Next time I would add some gluten.
I modified the recipe by using equal parts of white, rye and whole wheat flour. This made a good bread but it didn't taste as good as it smelled when it was baking. The loaf was so hot when I cut the first slice that I almost burned myself.
This was a good bread recipe, although I agree with some reviewers that the onion soup mix smelled good, but the taste just wasn't there in the finished product (and my kids didnt' like the chunks of onion, or the idea of onions in bread). I made the recipe again without the soup mix, and ended up with a delicious, soft and tender whole wheat bread that was perfect with honey or apple butter. I made it into rolls and they freeze nicely.
This is a very good recipe. I baked it in the bread machine too. I used the wheat flour made for bread machine baking. I used the "wheat" setting on the machine with a light crust. The loaf came out moist & the texture was perfect. The flavor is very savory. If only I'd had some cream cheese to spread on it... :-)
