I was about to throw out my bread machine, then I tried this recipe and created a perfect loaf of white bread that my whole family loved. I have the Black & Decker B6000C, and every loaf I made (3 before this one), was either too high and stuck to the top, or got stuck on the sides/bottom and was mangled coming out of the machine. For this loaf I used the 2lb, light setting, added a 15 minute delay time (as instructed in the recipe), used a plastic bread knife around the edges after backing was complete, then jiggled the heck out of the bread pan to release the loaf and it came out perfectly. Yeah, I can finally make a great loaf of white bread. Thanks!

Can't believe I haven't rated this - I've made this many times, bread and rolls and it's very TASTY! No need for BF, I just use AP and increase the yeast to 2-1/4 teaspoons (one packet dry, active). We LOVE this recipe! Rises like it will carry us away, nice, yeasty flavor and makes for very fluffy rolls. I always use the ABM for mixing and the first rise, remove it, roll it out with the rolling pin, then roll it up into a large loaf or ball it up into about 12 large rolls. Love this recipe for making my own dry breadcrumbs, too, if there is any left over (not very often!). Super! Thanks for posting a really easy great recipe!

This recipe turned our perfectly. I have been searching for a basic bread that did not crumble or fall apart. I let the machine do the mixing and baking and followed the instructions to the letter. Thanks Pamela, I'll be making it often. The family loved it.

I've just finished taking out my second loaf of bread and I am still disappointed with the gnarly surface so will try to decrease the flour and increase the water as the instruction book suggests. I am satisfied with the inside texture. I appreciate all your reviews.

I tried this today in my Black and Decker B6000C and it worked GREAT! The one that comes with my book is only 3lb loaf and it sticks to the top of the lid. This 2lb one worked perfectly. Tasted great, and I am VERY pleased with it.<br/><br/>Oshawa, Ontario, Canada

I agree with cindyp1958, this is a great, great, recipe. I too, had given up hope in producing a decent sandwich bread (unless you bought a 4.00 loaf from Wegmans) in my bread machine. All of them were just awful - and worse by the next day. This really holds up well, and it perfect for anything you might chose. I did not change one thing. I wanted to test the recipe fully.....and this is just simply a wonderful recipe that gives you a suburb loaf of bread. Thanks, Pamela!

I've been looking for a breadmaker recipe that matched the one I had from an old Proctor and Silex book that came with my MIL's breadmaker. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

First time ever making bread in my bread machine, and it turned out perfect! Very yummy...I may have to make two loaves a day!
