    Wonderful! Love using molasses -- good iron content! I bumped up the nutrition with 1/2 cup wheat germ, 1/2 cup ground flax seed, 2 cups whole wheat flour and used Whole Wheat setting -> more dense of course, but very tasty. THANKS!  -  07 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    this was great! I only used whole wheat flour and put the bread on my whole wheat settings and it turned out perfectly.  -  28 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a soft bread, with a delicious, mellow molasses flavor. If you are making it by hand, double the recipe- one loaf wont last long! My dough didn't need the entire 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour, so if you're kneading it in, add it in increments as you knead. I heated the milk, water, and molasses together on the stove, then added it to the yeast and let it foam up for a bit before adding the melted butter, salt and flours.  -  31 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
