FIRST TIME BREAD BAKER HERE! Loved this bread. Super healthy, tasty and dense. Tastes great with PB&J and goes well with a nice bowl of Split Pea soup! - 14 Apr 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was my first time baking bread and this recipe would've been great if the bread had risen Make sure your yeast is good. I found out that my yeast was no good. Had I done research on bread baking tips, I would've noticed that the yeast didn't "activate". My advice is to buy enough yeast to test out..if it doesn't bubble or foam, it's no good and to cut this recipe so that you won't waste product. I had to throw it all away, however I will try again and hopefully get it right next time. - 07 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A very heavy loaf of bread. Very dense, but flavorful. I usually add ground cloves or cinnamon either when I'm mixing, or dust the top of the loaves before I put them in the oven. I use this bread for fasting, and I haven't had a problem with it yet. It just takes some time to prepare, but it's worth it. - 09 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
