Finally a wheat bread recipe that's not sweetened! This is as tasty as German breads, but mine was not as elastic. I did tweak it, using oats instead of cornmeal and flax seeds instead of sesame seeds, and I used all water rather than part milk (more in line with German recipes). Based on a previous review I doubled the salt, but that made it a bit too salty for my taste. Next time I would stick with 1 - 1 1/2 tsp. salt. It is still a very good old world-like bread. - 27 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I skipped the seeds, and I used coursely-ground cornmeal that I had let soak in the 3/4 c. milk. I added about 2 T. gluten to this as well. I let it rise twice, baked it in a 9x5 pan in a 350 oven, and it rose really well. It perhaps could use a bit more salt. - 08 Feb 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
