    It's not a bread machine recipe if I have to turn on the oven. Dumped it all in the breadmaker on whole wheat, 1.5 lb loaf, light crust. Added 1/4 cup water during kneading b/c the mix was too dry. Final result was still a bit dry. Texture about as expected for the flours (medium grainy). I don't understand why this recipe used all purpose instead of bread flour. Bread had a hint of sweetness, faint orange flavor, ginger undertones. Overall I'd say it was too mildly spiced to be a specialty bread and too flavored to be an all purpose bread. I won't be making this again.  -  26 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Yum, it doesn't have a coarse yeast-bread grain (at least I think of yeast-bread as coarse-grained). It's more like a quick bread in that it's fine-grained and somewhat soft. It's also nice that it only rises once.  -  27 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I like this bread, but I don't love it. I would make it again because I have not found many breakfast breads. I think it would make good french toast.  -  02 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
