This is an excellent recipe. I prefer more wheat in my breads so I added 2 Cups of Wheat flour and 3 Tablespoons of oil. After the first rise and punching down the dough I cut into four sections and produced four round loaves. They were risen for an hour, split the top into a cross, rubbed butter into the cross and baked for 30 minutes. The final product was absolutely perfect.

This was a great bread recipe, very easy to make. It made two very nice loaves of tender bread with a very mild molasses taste. I gave my extra loaf to a couple who don't eat sugar and they really liked it.
