    Nice loaf, I was worried adding treacle that it would be too overwhelming, but actually the taste is quite subtle. Rose massively!  -  23 Sep 2014


    Absolutely terrific! I cut the water way back...actually put in a 2-cup measuring cup: 1/4 cup molasses, 2 T. light margarine and then filled with water to the 1 1/4 cup mark...worked great in my Zo...a tall, soft loaf with a chewy crust...even several days later!  -  07 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent. I had to add about 1/2 to 3/4 cup more of flour. It also reminded me of the bread my grandmother used to make so I added raisins, green and red cherries and cut up glazed pineapple. It was absolutely deliscious. I also told my aunt and mother about it and my aunt went out and bought a breadmaker to make this bread. They both love it  -  30 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
