    Just to add a note, about this fantastic bread, 18 TBS is 1 cup + 2 TBS.... 18 TBS is just time consuming. But sure can't beat the bread.  -  14 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Fresh out of the bread machine, this bread is absolutely delicious. The only drawback to the recipe, is the measurement for the water. It would be easier if it were converted to the standard measurement of 1 cup and 2 tablespoons.  -  23 Oct 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    just cut into our loaf from this recipe.. beautiful on the light setting and quite lovely in the crumb. My machine runs two raises and then a proof run so i did not stop it and reset. Used King Aurthur unbleach bread machine flower and corn oil.. no other changes... came out divine. Lots of flavor. If you start out with GOOD flour you get good bread. Thanks!  -  22 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
