WOW! what a GREAT recipe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot tell you HOW MANY 'failed' loaves of bread I have had over the last couple of weeks while trying to 'master' the art of making bread! I am going to throw away ALL of the other bread receipes and have this one in my book!!!! THANK YOU for making me successful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was just about ready to give up when I found this one. If I could give it 10 stars I would!!!!
great recipe thanks for sharing
Lovely recipe, I usded F.com to cut it to one loaf as there's only 2 of us right now and it made one lovely, large and very soft loaf of bread, with a slightly sweet taste that we enjoyed with butter. Think it's going to make great toast for todays breakfast too. Our only problem is it's almost too soft (if that's possible) when it comes to using for sandwiches - I did add a tablespoon of flax seeds to it, just my attempt at getting something healthy in my picky eater nephew that is visiting.
This was my first attempt at making my own bread from scratch, I chose this out of all the others I looked at on this site. These came out so delicious, I love them and so does the family. I had a couple slices with soup, and tonight I had some toasted with butter spread and grape jelly, tomorrow I'm going to make a sandwich with them. The only changes I made was that I added a cup of whole wheat flour in place of a cup of the white. And I added a tsp of sugar to the water/yeast mixture at the beginning. Maybe that's not necessary, I thought that it might be. I can't wait to make this bread again! I wonder if I can substitute rapid rise yeast to make the process go faster?
Really nice flavour but found the texture to be a little dense. It was perfect for toast, though!
I have tried a thousand different times and a thousand different recipes and I have *never* had any success baking bread. Until I tried this one!! So easy, and it turns out beautifully. I like to use bread flour for it. The inside is moist and soft and the outside has just a slight crusty texture. Absolutely perfect! Thank you. :)
Fantastic! I made this recipe for soup and sandwich night and I couldn't be happier with the result. This is a keeper recipe for sure. Thanks for posting.
Loved this bread! Cut this in half and made the dough in the bread machine. Punched it down and let it rise in a loaf pan, then baked at 350' for 30 minutes. Buttered the top when it came out of the oven. Beautiful loaf of bread... golden brown, and substantial enough for sandwiches, but still light and tasty. Thanks for sharing a great bread recipe. Update 10/9/11: Used one loaf of this cut into pieces and rolled out pretzel style wrapped around hot dogs. Baked at 375 for about 15 minutes, then brushed with garlic butter and baked until golden. Other loaf I rolled out and made a large buffalo chicken filled sandwich and baked 25 minutes, brushing with the butter the last five! Fantastic!
My family really loved this! I made 2 loaves, and they didn't last 2 days, so I am already making more! Wonderful and super easy instructions for a super yummy result! All 3 of my kids wanted to take their lunch yesterday to school, just so they could have the bread for a sandwich!It is a hit at my house! Thank you for sharing!
This bread came together wonderfully! It had a good flavor, not too yeasty, and buttery from the little bit I smeared on top of each loaf. The only thing I disliked was how dry it was when I sliced it for sandwiches. The tops just crumbled off, but that could be because of the weather and how dry it has been. Overall, I am satisfied and will make this again. Thank you for posting!
