What a brilliant recipe!
This was our first ever home made bread and we were amazed with the loaf that came out of the machine - simply superb!
We follow the recipe to the letter, but have been using honey instead of sugar. With a little experimentation, we found that we get the best results by dissolving 1 tsp of honey (overflowing) in a little warm water, then topping it up with cold filtered water to 360ml (as per recipe).
What a difference good bread makes!

This was the first recipe I tried using this grain. The house filled with a glorious, mouthwatering smell as it baked, so I had high hopes for the result. The loaf was golden, dense and intense in flavour, making it a perfect accompaniment to hearty soups and stews. It's easy to slice thinly, but the nutty, slightly eggy and sweet flavour may have you moving that bread knife a bit further along the loaf. Don't expect this one to last long, unless you can hide it from the rest of the family!
