Thanks for the recipe. I like that it has no sweetener in it. I'll try it in the breadmaker...have you tried that?

Jan Scott

Hi Linn,

I like that it has no sweetener in it as well. To be honest, I don't own a breadmaker so I can't say for sure how it will turn out....but I do know that I have made a lot of bread over the years and this one is by far the easiest (despite the long list of instructions). It also tastes better the longer it's left in the fridge so it really can be used up over time. If you do try in the breadmaker please let me know how it works out...

I love that I found your site. It is so fabulous. We need bread today, so I have a batch of this going at the moment.


So excited to try this RIGHT NOW! Thanks:)

Monkey Lobster

i tried something similar from mother earth news........not so great. i'll try this one too, see how it goes.

Jan Scott

Thank you! I hope the bread works out for you and I look forward to hearing all about it.

Jan Scott

Let me know how it works out for you....

Jan Scott

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. It's super easy and tasty and we've been eating nothing else for the past few months.


Hi There,

Looks and sounds great! I will try it for my family but my hubbie is still stuck on white bread! That is what he was given growing up and seems to enjoy better despite the health benefits with other grain breads.
Even when we have pizza I do whole wheat for the girls and I and white for him. I must admit that the white pizza dough does seem abit easier to work with but I irls to get more fibre in them so we still to the whole wheat!
I think I will try tonight if not too tired.

Jan Scott

It's hard when a husband is so set in his ways, isn't it? I actually prefer the taste of whole wheat/whole grain/spelt to white flour now, but I do understand that some people just prefer what they know. Try this bread recipe and see if you can convert him. It's definitely not a white sandwich-bread kind of bread but it's yummy...and I love it toasted with peanut butter!


Thanks for sharing this recipe! I made it today for the first time, and we had it for a late supper. My youngest sister loved it, and said I should definitely make it again! I was glad that it turned out so well, and that it makes multiple loaves that can be baked at different times.



Jan Scott

I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the bread. I agree, the ability to make
loaves at different time, with just one recipe, is the best part of all.
The fact that it's good bread doesn't hurt either.


does it need to rest between loaf shaping and baking if using it straight from making instead of refrigerating? i'm excited to try this because our other breads seem hopelessly complicated as we pack to move house. but store bread is so disappointing.

Jan Scott

Hi Rebecca - I don't think it needs to rest but I would add quite a good
sprinkle of flour to dough before shaping it as it's really quite "wet" when
the initial rise is done. I hope you like the results...it's been our go-to
bread for 7 months now and we all love it.
