This is simply the best bread I have ever made! Thank you for this recipe! I am opening a B&B and this is the third day in a row I have made up this delicious batch of bread! - 14 Jul 2008

This is the BEST bread recipe! I make it at least twice a week (6 kids.) The flavour is sensational--my very favorite. I don't do all the separate rising stages anymore, too much work, too much time, and too much mess. I just throw all the ingredients in at once, mix it up, knead it, put it in the loaf tins, put them in the oven with the oven light on to rise, then when they are risen enough turn the oven on and bake them. - 14 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients.
This bread is a winner. It has a great texture -- chewy and grainy -- plus really good flavour. I didn't have sunflower seeds so I substituted porridge oats in its place. This recipe is VERY large, so it may be better to halve it. I had to hand form the loaves because they were too sticky to roll out. I ended up using extra bread flour in kneading, but it never really became kneadable. I ran out of bread flour at that point. Nonetheless, the bread came out very good. - 14 Jul 2008
