I made this for our weekly bread last week, but neglected to post my review. I did not use a bread machine (I own one) but do not like using it. Instead I made this by using my KitchenAid and hand kneading it. I loved the texture, flavor and crust on this bread. I did have to use a bit more flour than called for by doing this w/o the Bread machine, but feel it turned out as spectacular as if I had. Thank You for the lovely bread recipe. Just wanna update this as I make this bread often, as above, and the texture and flavor are always perfect...Thank you again for a great recipe.

Great bread. Made as is, no changes. It came out fluffy, just enough of a crust and a soft interior. Simple bread, makes great sandwiches. Thanks.

I used half bread flour and half regular flour. Omitted the onion powder (2 of the 4 times I've made it so far) it's good both ways. I also just kneaded with my hands, no machine. Other changes I made. After punching down and putting in loaf pan, I put it in a cold oven, turned it on to 375 and let it rise while it was preheating. A little trick I learned from another bread maker. Perfect, Perfect, PERFECT bread! yummy!
