Many compliments on this bread recipe. Minor changes> molasses instead of brown sugar when feeding the yeast in the first step (easier to mix), half wheat and half all purpose flour. In the future, I will make this with 3/4 of the dough in one bread pan, and use the leftovers for dinner rolls, as each half did not make such a large loaf as I like for slicing for sandwiches.
This recipe wasn't bad, just wasn't my favourite. I like more dense bread than this. It is very light, and my crust came out quite tough, especially the bottom. Not overcooked, just hard. The flavour is good, but not awesome. Thanks for the recipe though :)
Delish! Has a regular wheat bread taste (like store bought) and I got a wonderful crisp crust on mine without doing anything special. I made it exactly as written except I did not need the last cup of flour in the recipe and instead of rolling it out I just shaped the loaves in the pan into rectangles that fit the pans. Here's a tip: do not over rise for the second rising. If you let it rise for too long (more than 35 mins. or so) it will over rise and then deflate if you try to move it to the oven and it will be flat like mine!
This bread came out fantastic. I don't have any bread making equipment so i kneeded the dough for about ten minutes prior to the first rising. It rose beautifully and i love the way the slits in the top look. I find that most breads become dense after cooling however this stayed quite fluffy. I don't have little kids at home but this was definately hubby friendly!
Very good bread! It is definitely kid friendly, because within minutes of taking this out of the oven, the smell got their attention and almost an entire loaf was gone within ten minutes. I did do a few things different, but not so much to change the recipe, per se. I always use King Arthur flour or home-grinded. In this case, I used KA flour, as it is far superior to all other brands, imo. Used coconut oil for the vegetable oil; Rapunzel sugar instead of brown sugar; Himalayan salt; and raw milk. The end results were delicious! Oh yes, only used three cups plus 2 TBSP. of the whole wheat flour. It's easy to know when you have added enough flour, if you're using a stand mixer with a dough hook. The dough will come together and completely come away from the sides of the bowl. It'll also come away from the dough hook (not be sticky to it) where the dough hook is only kneeding it. If kneeding by hand, same thing, except with your hands, it won't be sticky to your hands anymore and will come away from them. Just a tip for anyone new to bread making. :) Do a search on bread making and you'll find all sorts of tricks of the trade! Bread making is so much fun!
Easy to make, very delicious. Not as sweet as a honey wheat bread, which I like. Good wheat flavor. I boil water in my teapot and fill an extra metal loaf pan 1/2 full with boiling water and then put it in the oven with the bread. It makes the oven work more like a brick oven and gives the bread a real crusty crust, but I do this with all yeast breads (my hubby loves a good crust). Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great!
This is so good. It really is kid-friendly, too! All of my babies just loved this and couldn't stay out of it. I didn't need all of the flour- left out the last cup. I used canola oil in this. I wouldn't bake at 400 next time though- it got brown really fast and was a teensy bit dry on the ends. I think 350 for the whole amount of time might be better. I didn't follow the directions for shaping, but probably should have (my loaves looked funny). I pulled this out of the oven at 5pm and the first loaf was totally gone 4 hours later.
Perfect sandwich bread! Soft bread & crust, but firm enough to hold up while slicing thinly for sandwiches & toast.
I made 1 loaf & some sticky buns, since I had to roll it out, anyway. Both were a hit with my husband & 4 yr old.
It didn't need to bake more than 30 min. in my oven (15min @ 400F, 10-15min @ 350F.)
