What an easy recipe--just a few standard ingredients and a bread machine yield an excellent loaf of bread. No wonder there are so many positive comments. What's not to like? Followed to the T with great end results--thanks for sharing, Marie.

This is an excellent recipe. I sub white flour for a multigrain flower and I use margarine instead of butter. Hubby has high cholesterol. It turns out fabulously. I have even made this recipe 2/3 whole wheat 1/3 white bread flour and it isn't heavy like most whole wheat breads. My kids devour it. I haven't bought store bread in months and don't plan on every buying it again. My girls love helping me add the ingredients to the bread maker tin.

A perfect bread from the bread machine. Very good and didn't last long with the family. They finished it off real fast. Mother loved it. I will be making this again. Thanks for the wonderful recipe. I will be making this again.

This is a wonderful recipe for bread machine bread. I made tis to go with a beef stew and it was perfect. We didn't even butter half of it, it stood on its own. Thank you so much for sharing this yummy recipe. I plan on making it again tonight.

Very easy to make and yummy to boot! I made exactly as written. I was a little concerned because it didn't rise up like a normal loaf, but it was still very yummy! Thanks so much for posting!!

wow this is so easy to do and the bread has a nice texture. Mine was not dense. It was moist. I used vegetable oil instead of shortening. That's the only change I made. Thanks Marie for the recipe :) Made for TYM tag game

This was my first attempt at using a bread machine and all in all I think it turned out okay. The loaf was a bit denser than I expected but then again my expectation could be a bit off (never made anything other than a quick bread with any success). I chose to use the dough only cycle then bake in the oven at 350 for 25 minutes as others stated but in my very reliable oven this was not enough time. I cooked my bread for almost double the time. The loaf was tall and beautiful and makes a good sandwich. It is also equally delicious smothered in homemade peach jam.

Great bread! I changed the recipe to a 2 lb loaf and all that needs to be noted is that the yeast can stay the same as the 1.5 lb loaf. My house really enjoys fresh bread and this is a great loaf.
