This is one of my favorite recipes, especially since it features maple syrup. Vermont produces more maple syrup that any other state.

"My bread turned out *exactly* like the picture! I'm very pleased with the appearance of these big, rich loaves. The dough was very sticky and I kept letting a lot of flour incorporate throughout the kneading process until I was satisfied that it formed a fairly smooth, firm ball. I just used this bread for toast this morning and it was so warm and comforting. I can't really taste the coffee on its own, but I think it's definitely working to boost that cozy maple flavor that makes this bread a perfect, richly-flavored winter time breakfast."

"This bread is good. The oatmeal gives it a nice consistency. I used 1/2 cup corn syrup and 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring since I didn't have maple syrup. I will be making this satisfying bread again."

"Sorry, I was not a fan of this one. The flavor of the coffee just didn't work for me, and I am a coffee lover. In a yeast bread, it just wasn't something I enjoyed, but thank you for sharing. The list of ingredients was different enough that I was compelled to try it."

"This is a wonderful recipe! I love making it, because it is so delicious! I did leave out the half cup of sugar, because I thought that would make it too sweet. It was perfect without the extra sugar! This will be one of my "go to" bread recipes from now on!"

"This is one of the best bread recipes I have made yet. I made it for a church supper and it got raves. I often get requests to make it again."

"This is comfort food in a loaf! It's tender, light, and ever so slightly sweet. One of my favorites! I half the recipe and put in a bread machine. It comes out great every time."
