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.

I only use my ABM to mix, knead and rise the dough. We don't like bread baked in it. So after the beep I take it out , shape and put in a WELL greased loaf pan. I do find I have to add about 1/2 cup more flour during the mixing stage ( could be alot to do with the high humidity here right now) This is the absolute best white bread machine bread we have ever had.Makes excellent toast. It is so light and fluffy and the crust stays crisp and is not tough. I have even made it using a mix of white flour and a multigrain flour. We are a family of only two now and I have never gotten the knack of cutting my own recipe back LOL Found this recipe and have been making it every couple days . This is a KEEPER and going in my Divine recipes of 2009 cookbook.

This was awesome. I set my bread machine to a medium crust and it was perfect.

This is an excellent recipe for what my DH calls "gooey white bread." The crust is thin but chewy, and the interior is wonderfully moist and soft. It has an excellent flavor. When I toasted it, it came out light and crispy, not hard the way some bread machine breads do. This is definitely a keeper. UPDATE: I tried substituting 1 cup of rye flour for 1 cup of the regular flour in the recipe. It turned out very well. It did not rise as high, but was still very moist, with a nice flavor.

I couldn't ask for more from a loaf of white bread. It mixed up perfectly in the bread machine. Smelled wonderful, browned beautifully on the medium function of my machine. I loved the consistency, too. My favorite way to eat this is toasted with homemade strawberry jam.
