    an excellent bread, my husband loves it, nice, moist and not too heavy, but filling enough for teenagers  -  04 Mar 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    perfect taste and texture  -  22 Jul 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made a few changes for the preferences of my family; I used yogurt instead of the milk and vinegar, honey instead of molasses, and 1/2 of the flour was whole wheat. I found that I still needed about an extra 1/2 cup flour. Caraway seeds give the bread a great flavor!  -  13 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
