This is a great bread machine recipe and makes excellent toast and sandwiches. This is a favourite to make in the bread machine.
awesome loaf. I added 3/4 tsp bread improver - just "to be sure", I also used quick oats which ground up to nothing as I wasn't sure I wanted lumps of rolled oats in the loaf but I think they probably would have broken down to small pieces anyway so I'd just use rolled outs next time. I'd definitely make this loaf again - 23 Apr 2010
Altered ingredient amounts. Hi All, I submitted this recipe a couple years ago and am just now checking back. We still go through a loaf a day (the children even fight over the crusts!), but we do use about 5 tablespoons flour more than what I originally wrote. A "heavy" tsp. of yeast is nice also. Will try the butter in place of oil, sounds good. Thank you! Merrilee Bell - 14 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. This was very easy to make and it came out great! I did make one change, however. Instead of using all plain flour, I used half plain flour and half wholemeal flour. This gave it more fibre and a better, nuttier taste. I also add vital wheat gluten, which is available at health shops. This gives more volume to loaves and a more bread-like texture. The rule is to add one teaspoon of wheat gluten per 125g of flour or one and a half teaspoons for wholemeal flour. I hope this tip is helpful for those who may be having trouble with the size of their bread loaves as a result of not using bread flour. I will be making this bread again soon! - 14 Jul 2008
