This is an excellent bread. I followed the recipe exactly and was very pleased with the end product. Will for sure be making this again for sure. Great way to use up honey that has crystallized. (microwaved it until returned to liquid form) Thanks! This recipe is a keeper. Recipe doubles great!
Update: Used this recipe again on the request of my hubby and kiddo's. Have to say it again, great recipe. I uploaded two images as well. Before putting the loaves (I make two at a time) went into the oven, I split cut the loaf lengthwise and drizzled a bit of butter to make it a butter top. Then baked as normal. Really like this recipe. Thanks again!
This is a superb sandwich bread recipe!! (and I make a lot of bread!) I used a bread machine to prepare the dough, and then punched it down, shaped it, and placed it in a baking tray. (It was easy to work with, and I didn't even need to flour the work surface.) I let it rise again, and baked it for 23 minutes at 375 F. It rose really well, and kept its shape. My daughter arrived unexpectedly, and I gave her the loaf to take home, and made another loaf. We both enjoyed the bread imensely, and this is going to be a staple in our household! Thanks so much!! :)
excellent sandwich bread! nice balance of fluffy and doughy. a slice you can really sink your teeth into and have something to bite on! one note, i haven't needed the extra flour during kneading.
This recipe makes a fantastic loaf! It is the one bread we all like to take to school and work for sandwiches. The boiling water in step 10 really helps keep it all moist when baking. I use my ABM to mix the dough, continue at step 8, and still get great results.
Finished product lacked salt, would suggest adding much more.
It's a good recipe, taken verbatim from The Best Recipe cookbook.
I've been dabbling in bread making, to save on the cost of bread. This is the ONLY recipe that comes out right for me every time!! I can taste the honey used to activate the yeast and OMG Love it, love it, love it!
This makes a soft and light sandwich bread. I accidentally started with the full 3 3/4 cups of flour, so I never needed to add more. I kneaded the dough by hand a little after removing it from the mixer, mostly because I felt like it! I'm adding this recipe to my regular bread rotation. Thanks for sharing!
Very tasty! My first attempt was a bit too dense, so I'm hoping for better luck on the second try (which is in the oven right now)
We loved this bread and will be making it often. I only wish that we had made two loaves rather than one. My husband was compairing prices for this versus store bought and then half way through said "Not that it matters, we'll be making this from now on either way." Then looked at me and said "look, you don't have shoes on and are making my bread just as it should be"...now I don't feel so guilty for eating most of the loaf with the kids this afternoon. :)
