About this recipe: This bread is easy to make and has a fantastic flavour. It's very lightly sweetened with honey and made in a bread machine. Enjoy with dinner or use for sandwiches.
I made this recipe in my regular oven since I don't have a bread machine. I mixed the starter, water, oil, honey and yeast in the bowl of my mixer and let it sit for about ten minutes to give the yeast a chance to activate. Then I added in the flours and the salt and mixed for a few minutes then kneaded it by hand for a few minutes. I let it rest for about an hour, punched it down and put it in a bread pan and let it rise for another 45 minutes. After that I baked it at 375 degrees for about 30-35 minutes. The bread had a wonderful subtle honey taste... would be good with some honey butter. - 06 Feb 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this recipe on my bread machine and in the oven, the result was awesome. I did modify a couple of ingredients and it still turned out wonderful. I modified the water to 3/4 cup, 3 tbsp. honey, 1 tsp. salt, 1 cup wheat flour, 2 tsp. rapid rise yeast and 3 spoonfuls of quick oats. The result is a great tasting, chewy, kinda sweet loaf of bread. It's great for french toast, grilled cheese, sandwiches, or just plain buttered. Michelle - 18 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've been making bread for a while, but I am new to making sourdough. This was my third try and it is one of the best recipes EVER, not just among my sourdough tries. It slices perfectly. Not too crunchy, not too soft. Great recipe!! I am saving this one! - 24 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
