The texture and crust were excellent. For our taste, it needed a bit more salt and I may try it with butter-flavored shortening as I missed the buttery flavor element I usually taste in home-made bread. Thanks.

Fantastic recipe! Set bread machine to medium crust and 1.5 lbs and it produced a perfectly crusty outside and a light, airy inside with a great flavor. Was delicious both with and without butter, and so simple to make. Will definitely make this again!

I brought my bread machine out of the shop and dusted it off this week. Hadn't used it in years and didn't know what quantities to use, so I took a stab at your recipe, and so glad I did! I pushed the 1 1/2 button and voila! Made a beautiful nice high loaf even though I subbed 1 1/4 cups of flour for whole wheat flour. Thank you so much for posting this recipe! Will try rolls next time!

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.

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.
