"tried this recipe twice in my bread machine. Thought the 1st time was due to bad yeast. Tried again with new yeast, still turned out horrible."

"Loved this. Made for a bake sale and was a real winner. I didn't bake it in bread machine however as I wanted to braid it just used that for the dough. I did this and then baked it in the oven turned out beautiful!"

"I'm not a fan of molasses, so I substituted honey instead. This bread is our favorite. Moist, flavorful and a great texture. My husband absolutely loves it!"
