    Saturday morning 'ritual;' fresh baked bread. Kids packed into the kitchen waiting.... waiting ... slab of butter and home made jam(s). In a couple of cases I had NO IDEA who they were; but at table, neat tydie.

    I used this recipe but baked it in the oven, which is what I always do with bread machine dough. Oh, what a tantalizing smell as it was baking. It came out of the oven as a golden beautiful loaf. I had to have a slice before it cooled. This is truly a keeper

    Would anyone use Vital Gluten Flour in the recipe?

    Made this today and it came out perfect. I will definitely make it again. I used all whole grain bread flour instead of a combination of flours.

    This is now my favorite! But I do make one change..I use two cups of whole wheat flour and 1 cup bread flour. Next time I am going to substitute molasses for the honey....I'll post the result.. It makes a fine crumb, moist loaf

    This recipe turned out really well. It rose well and was moist and spongy. I am allergic to dairy, so I made a few alterations. I subbed almond milk for milk and coconut oil for butter.
