    Really tasty, good toasted with loads of butter!  -  01 May 2016


    Lovely well risen loaf. Very moist and would make again!  -  01 Oct 2014


    Very nice bread. I used oat groats instead of rolled oats. I also didn't add the quarter cup of oats later. This loaf rose sky-high in my machine. It was light and fluffy, I wished I could eat more. Next time, I will add brown sugar to try to make a sweet breakfast loaf.  -  09 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
