    DeeVaFoodie's Note:

    Bloomer Bread is not really a type of bread as much as it is a shape. It is cylindrical with a flat bottom, and has several diagonal slashes across the top. It's a British "style" of baking bread. The slow rising means the yeast does the work and develops a rich flavor.

      This is an excellent bread. I love that there is no fat added (although, I did add in 2 Tbsp of Splenda). I made buns as I just never use a loaf of bread before it starts to grow cultures. The buns I will freeze to use as I like. It makes a hearty, good tasting, bread that will satisfy an empty tummy. I used 1.5 tsps of instant yeast that I buy in the jar and I'm not sure of how that differs from the dry. The full recipe made 8 big buns.
