    Just OK.  -  03 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I did this using my stand mixer by proofing the yeast in the water (warmed) then adding the molasses and melted butter. It wasn't too humid here today so I was surprised that I had to add almost a cup more flour for it to come together. The rest I used stated quantities, oh, I did add 2 tbs of caraway seed for personal taste. Baked at 375 for about 26 minutes and produced a surprisingly light coarse textured bread that made terrific BLTs. This is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.  -  30 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
