    Great recipe - I substituted oil for the margarine and it worked perfectly. I dissolved the yeast & sugar in the warm water first, then added the other ingredients. Perfect result even on a long time delay.  -  21 Jun 2013


    Loved it! Best bread I have ever made. I didn't use a bread machine. Instead I did the following: mixed dry ingredients in large bowl. Combined yeast, honey (in place of sugar), butter, and warm water in a separate bowl. Mixed until dissolved and left to sit a couple minutes until creamy. Added yeast mixture to dry ingredients. After kneeding the dough for a while, 10-15 minutes or so, I left it to rise until it was just over double the size. Punched it down. Put dough into bread pan and left to rise again. Baked in the oven for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Yum! The crust of this bread is amazing. I will definitely be making this bread again and again.  -  21 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Oh my gosh! I got my bread machine for christmas and I have literally tried at LEAST more than a half dozen recipes, I didn't find one I liked until now! I kept it exactly the same except a couple things. I put in 2 cups all purpose and one cup whole wheat (to try to get myself to eat some wheat, I like wheat, but I was raised on white, so it's hard) and I also let it rise once (regular "basic" bread cycle) turned the machine off and then restarted the whole cycle again (I got that tip off one site, supposed to make the bread hold up better, keep it's shape, while still being fluffy). I was scared there would be no need for bread flour or gluten but the oatmeal does the trick! It disappears into the bread and binds great! Great for kids who have issues with "things" showing in the bread, it's all hiding! I can't thank you enough for this one! It's my favorite! I'm so glad it had oatmeal in it too! Great great great!  -  02 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
