MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 1, 2010

Didn't have rye, so I used double oats and threw in some flax, too. My kids loved it and so did I!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 17, 2010

I have made this bread at least six times and it is excellent. However, I had to increase the water to one cup. It makes a larger than average loaf.
