Honey Multigrain Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
Awesome!! A very tender bread with nice flavour. Like other reviewers, I didn't use the full amount of flour. I subbed one cup of white flour with multigrain in addition to the rye and whole wheat and didn't keep track of the white flour used. I'd guess maybe 5 cups at the most but am not sure. I didn't like the look of the mixture just after adding the yeast so I threw it out and did it again, this time doing the yeast like all the other recipes I've used have called for - sprinkling the yeast in warm water and letting it sit for a few minutes. I reserved some of the water for the cornmeal before cooking it and used that for my yeast. Don't know if it makes any difference or not. Someone commented that the crust was rather hard. After taking the bread out of the oven, I've always brushed the tops with melted butter. I find it makes the tops look golden and gives them a nice sheen as well as softens the crust. I've just eaten my first slice and it is a nice tender bread. Not bland, with a very subtle taste of honey. I expect that the flavours will be more pronounced after the bread sits overnight, as most loaves taste even better the next day. Five stars because the only issue seems to be the amount of flour if the recipe is followed as written.

Banana Date Flaxseed Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
Loved it!!! Had to cook it maybe an extra 10 minutes; may do that again next time or may use a 9x5 pan instead of an 8x4. Had a piece once it cooled and then wrapped it in plastic wrap and left it on the counter. Perfectly moist and delicious the next day. Next time I will add more dates and chop them less. I added pecans and golden raisins as well. Also used wheat germ and bran in place of the ground flaxseed since I only had whole and my processor wouldn't grind them. Replaced the oil with applesauce and used half whole wheat flour. Added the 1/4c whole flaxseed but as other posters have said, there's really no benefit to it; will possibly add chocolate chips instead next time. Awesome recipe, very quick to prepare and very easy. Bakes up beautifully.
