This is pure comfort food. There is nothing nicer than to cuddle up with my girlfriend in front of a warm fire and a movie while munching on thick slices of this bread hot from the oven dripping with melted country butter and warm honey and a big mug of milky tea.
Something else. Think next time I will divide the recipe in half and bake 2 loaves as this was a very large loaf and took extra time in my oven to bake and bottom got a bit dark. - 20 Oct 2008

Good flavor. Used whole wheat flour instead of ground wholemeal flour. Same problem as another reviewer, seemed to get very dark at 400 deg., and center was still doughy after 45 minutes. - 31 Mar 2012
