    Really nice, hearty bread. Very tasty and filling. Kids loved it too. I had no milk powder so used maybe 1/4 cup of milk, added at the same time as the water. Turned out perfect  -  09 Mar 2014


    I, too, had the same problem as the first reviewer. In any case, this bread is very tasty. If you like a french bread style, simply remove it from the bread machine after the second rise (it really won't rise that much) and place it in a french bread pan to bake. If you prefer a hearty textured high rise bread, simply add 2T oil (I used garlic flavored olive oil), 1T sugar, 2T gluten and you have a perfectly textured hearty high rise bread. Oh, I also added 5T Parmesan cheese and 1t garlic powder on the second try. This made it oh so flavorful. Thanks Kevin!  -  04 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I tried this recipe twice and could not get the bread to rise. It sounded so good. What a bummer!  -  13 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
