"It's lightly sweet, dark and rich. Great for toasting or snacking. Don't make it if you don't like molasses!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Very nice bread. I used oat groats instead of rolled oats. I also didn't add the quarter cup of oats later. This loaf rose sky-high in my machine. It was light and fluffy, I wished I could eat more. Next time, I will add brown sugar to try to make a sweet breakfast loaf.
Somewhat dry and not especially unique. Baked and made in my bread machine. I substituted milk for the powdered milk. Be sure to use dark molasses for flavor and darker color - light molasses doesn't cut it.
If I could give it double stars I would....this is the best bread machine recipe I have ever tasted....It's like a slightly sweet, really good wheat bread...Make it even if you don't like molasses because you cannot tell it's molasses.....Great!
This bread it fantastic and it rose beautifully! I altered it a bit by adding only 2 TBLS of molasses (it was all I had left) and I used 1 TBLS brown sugar to help add more flavor due to my lack of molasses. Finally, I left out the last addition of oats. Despite all of my alterations, this made a beautiful loaf. Also, I only made the dough in my machine and baked it in a regular loaf pan in the oven so its perfect for sandwiches. Yum! Thanks McReynolds!
I wish that there were options for four and a half stars. I made this by hand with my Kitchen Aid mixer instead of a bread machine. which I don't have. The measurements were spot-on, this didn't need any extra flour to get it to jump on the hook. I kneaded it with the hook for five minutes, then set it to rise in a greased bowl on my warm oven. The took forever to rise and when I went to form the bread, it formed really easy it was just pissy dough to work with. It fell easily. 30 minutes in a 350* oven and it was good to go. Great flavor, quite chewy. I plan on serving it with Hearty Bacon and Ranch Potato Soup. I'd make this again.
This is the best bread machine recipe! I did not add the extra oatmeal and it turned out great. The family loved it. Thank You.
Excellent! I made this in the bread machine, dough cycle. I then made 2 small loafs, let rise 1 hr., sliced the top and baked at 350 for 30 min or so (I live at high altitude, so don't trust my baking times)This is the best machine &/or traditional method bread I have made to date.
This made a HUGE loaf! It's hearty, sweet and moist. Quite tasty!
