    A little bit of honey really makes this wholemeal bread recipe special. Very easy to make in the bread machine.

    I took other reviewers advice and used 2 cups whole wheat flour & 1 cup bread flour, and added 1 tsp salt, increased the honey to 1/4 cup, and used 2 tbsp melted butter instead of oil. I also used the dough cycle on my breadmaker, punched down the dough and let it rise for 30 mins. in a loaf pan covered with plastic wrap before baking it @ 350 degree's for 25 mins. I also put a pan of water on a lower rack of my oven and my DH said after eating some of this bread...EXCELLENT! So this is a keeper with some minor adjustments....  -  23 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is the BEST bread recipe I have come across.I did change the amount of honey to 1/4 C. and used real butter instead of oil. This is my new staple bread recipe. Thank you so much for this submission. It also works well with molasses( I ran out of honey).  -  07 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I only gave this 4 stars since I changed several things based on other reviews. I used 2c. wheat flour and 1c. bread flour. I also used 1/4c. honey. I was concerned that this would make it too sweet but it balanced the other flavors perfectly. I also used 1t. salt. The end result was WONDERFUL. I will definitely make this bread again and again. Thanks for the recipe!  -  01 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
