Nice bread. I subbed flax seed for wheat bran, as I didn't have any, and decided (on a lark really--I have no good reason) to sub 1/4 c honey for the 1/4 c brown sugar. I used my breadmaker to mix the dough, and I halved the recipe to 20 servings, and ended up with 2 small loaves of bread. I had to add a bit more flour and a bit more water to get the consistency right, but it was more like a tbsp or so each so it wasn't much at all. This is a pretty full bodied bread. It baked up very dark brown--no need for an egg wash here! I baked for 40 min at 375 and I put the dough in bread pans, covered in plastic, and placed in the fridge overnight. It rose well enough in the fridge and I just set out the bread pans while the oven was preheating so didn't let it rise at room temp. I don't think I like the sesame seed flavor so much, but otherwise I think it's good. I'd make again and sub poppy seeds or sunflower seeds--some seed I like better! I can tell right now that bf won't like it but he's a plain white bread guy. Thanks for the recipe!
