This is a great and quick way to make six loaves of fantastic wholemeal bread. A mixer with a bread hook really saves time.
Used different ingredients. I bake bread every week, sometimes twice a week, and this is the best recipe I've ever used. It makes great baps, too, and rolls and the recipe follows exactly like it is written. Also recently I omitted the oats and added wheatgerm and about 1/3 extra dark brown sugar and it's great, too. If you have trouble getting your loaves even, just roll the dough out in one long even roll and use a tape measure to measure it into equal pieces and cut it and then roll the pieces into loaves. - 14 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. Wow...this is amazing. I had never made bread before, and I didn't have a bread machine OR a large mixer...and it still turned out great! I kneaded the dough according to the instructions, and I used honey in place of the brown sugar. Perfection! It makes shop-bought bread taste sickening. My husband and I finished off the first loaf in less than one day! - 14 Jul 2008
Took shortcuts. This recipe was rather easy for a bread recipe and made good bread. There was no way that we could eat 6 loaves of bread before they went bad so after I let the dough rise the first time and shaped the loaves I froze the dough. This was very easy, just once the loaves are shaped cover them in cling film before they are allowed to rise. Then freeze them in a plastic freezer bag. I've heard that you can keep the dough like this for up to 3 months, but I am not sure. When you are ready for a fresh loaf just unwrap the dough and place it in the tin, cover and let rise. It will take several hours to thaw and rise, but it will. A very easy way to always have fresh homemade bread! - 14 Jul 2008
