    AmyZoe's Note:

    This is the first bread I ever made when I was a kid. I consider it fail-proof, and it's very good. Preparation time doesn't include rising time.

      This bread was wonderful! I hadn't made homemade bread in a long time time, and forgot not only how much fun it is to make, but how the whole house smells like a bakery while it's in the oven!! Very good recipe! We loved it!! :)
