This brown bread has become a staple! I make it at least once a week now as my grown kids also love it and are taking it home with them. Just the right softness, chewiness, and sweetness. Great for sandwiches and delicious with butter and/or jam. It makes fantastic toast!
can this dough be frozen and then unthaw and let rise

I HAD TWO BROWN BREAD RECIPES PRINTED. I DECIDED ON THIS ONE FOR TWO REASONS; ITS MORE NATURAL AND I'VE BEEN TO KINGS LANDING (GREAT PLACE). I ONLY MADE TWO CHANGES: I USED BREAD FLOUR AND AFTER I PUT THE BREAD IN THE PANS I TOOK A FORK AND PUNCHED HOLES ALL OVER THEM, THAT GETS RID OF THE AIR BUBBLES AND GIVES IT A BETTER TEXTURE. I WILL MAKE AGAIN.
One of my favorite breads. The molasses add just the right amount of sweetness plus a beautiful color.
Love this bread! The molasses gives it a great flavor....will make again!
This bread is incredibly moist with the perfect subtle sweetness. Love!
This bread was very good with a subtle sweetness. However, I feel like all the dough would have fit into a 2 quart round dish. And I could have baked it all together.
This bread was pretty good, but I would make a few changes in the recipe. I would only use 2 cups water. It required about 7 1/2 cups of flour and then it was still very sticky. I would increase the molasses to 1/2 cup. My bread wasn't nearly as dark as in the photo. I would decrease yeast to 4 tsp. mine raised in 40 mins it was ready to run over the top of the pan. I also made rolls instead of bread. They were extremely light and fluffy. They went over very well with my guests. Will definitely make again.
This bread turns out perfect every time I make it. It is amazing and I have made and recommended it several times to friends and family. i add a scant 1/2 c cracked wheat to the oatmeal and boiling water. It is so delicious! You cannot eat just one piece!
