Molasses Herb Casserole Bread Recipe

A friend of my mother's gave her the recipe for this crusty round loaf that I now bake for my family. It goes great with winter stews and soups ... and we love the hint of molasses.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2013

"This recipe looked easy as well as tasty, so I thought I would give it a try. The flavor is very unique, and the hint of molasses is not overpowering, which I have found to be the case in other bread recipes I have tried that had molasses in them. I found that the second rise took only about a half hour for me, and I only baked it 25 minutes. I brushed the top with a little canola oil when it was done baking. Also, I used 1 cup water and 1/4 cup milk in place of the 1 1/4 cups milk, and also substituted 1 cup of whole wheat flour for 1 cup of the all-purpose flour in the first part of the recipe. Very good!"
