    It comes out really well, excellant taste and trexture. But I had to cut the salt back to just one tsp and put in 2 of sugar.  -  08 Jul 2013

    The whole family loves this bread. It's fool proof, so easy to make and really great to change it up a bit. I add extras like pecans, cherries, cranberries, walnuts, whatever is in my cupboard really and it turns out amazing. I also use maple syrup sometimes if I have no honey and use whole wheat flour in place of the all-purpose- for extra fibre. Thanks for fantastic recipe. Just about to pop another loaf on now.....  -  26 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
