very delicious and satisfying. Made it for a family brunch get together. The only change I made was because i didn't have as much molasses on hand as I thought I did, so ended up using about 1/3 C molasses and topping it off with honey to make it 3/4 C. Still delicious and I love how low fat and high fiber it is! The time in the oven was exactly right, too.

I love this bread! I've made it about five times since the October issue came out and it's received rave reviews every time. The recipe is simple, and the bread is absolutely delicious when served warm with apple butter.

Wow - this bread is packed with flavor! The molasses flavor is very strong, but it combines so well with the orange and the other flavors - it just tastes like fall! Halved the recipe and made it exactly as described except I ran out of molasses and had to top off the measuring cup with a bit of honey. I love the texture (moist and soft with just a touch of coarser texture from the cornmeal) and the fact that this recipe calls for no refined white flour or sugar. This was a big hit at dinner tonight (served it with CL Lentil Stew with Ham and Greens). This bread is definitely going into the rotation.

This is fabulous! However, after it has steamed, I remove the pans from the water, and the water from the oven, and bake the loaves for 5 minutes.
