Amish people sure know what they're doing! This bread is incredible. Soft and moist. I used butter flavored shortening which gave the bread that nice buttery taste without the yellowy color. I also kneaded the dough with a stand mixer for about 11-13 mins. You don't need that much butter to rub the bread with. I ended up using only about 1/2 Tbsp of butter per loaf.

Delicious!!! I am an avid baker, but never tried making bread from scratch. This was so easy and turned out perfect!!! Next time I want to try making it into cinnamon bread! Would love some suggestions for other variations!

WoW I tried this recipe yesterday making sub rolls instead of loaves of bread; it made 8 very large rolls and they turned out wonderful. The taste was delicious and the texture perfect. My family and I look forward to making again. Defiently my new go to bread recipe. Thanks so much for sharing. Saderbee

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! The bread was delicious! My whole family loved it. I've been needing a good recipe for sandwich bread and this has been the best I've tried.

Wanted to thank you for this recipe. It made big, beautiful loaves and was very easy to work with. I did increase the yeast to 2 quick- rise envelopes. (personal preference) Used my stand mixer to knead the dough for 10-12 min. and it was perfect. This will replace my old recipe.

Love this bread! Always comes out soft! I make 2 loaves for a week and it is easily used up! Great for sandwiches, french toast, egg in a basket, the list goes on and on!

This bread is awesome!! It came out so soft and had a really great taste!! I didn't have a loaf pan so I made free form loaves and it still turned out great. I made this to go along with Broccoli Cheese and Potato Soup and It was an awesome pairing. You have to try this bread!!

I can't believe how hard it is to find a real bread recipe that doesn't use a bread machine! This recipe is exactly what I was looking for. I followed the recipe as written, except I added a pinch of sugar to the yeast and water and watched for foam, as I've had issues with non-performing yeast in the past. The dough was a bit sticky, but not unmanagable by any standard. It rose beautifully and it was fluffly and light when baked. I made 2 loaves on Saturday and they were gone in less than half an hour. On Sunday, I showed my husband the fine art of homemade bread and he made 2 more loaves, and will probably make more in a day or so. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks for posting!
