This was a very moist and hearty bread, a great option for getting your whole grains in your day. It really does need to bake the full 45 minutes. The first time I made it, it was smelling done after 30 minutes and I did the toothpick check, which appeared dry. To my dismay, as it cooled, it sank, the inside was really not done. I used an aluminum pan, perhaps a stoneware loaf pan would work better.
