      We didn't have a large size bag, so we made it in a bowl mixing by hand and it turned out GREAT! The bread was so soft and scrumptious.

      This recipe gets 10 stars for fun and 4 stars for bread value. My kids and I had a great time making this. The dough did exactly what it was supposed to do and the flavor of the bread was delicious. Our bread was a little bit heavier than our usual homemade bread, but I'm positive that it wasn't kneaded as well as a stand mixer would manage. We made one bag into a loaf, and made the other into little rolls. The rolls were a lot better than the loaf because you didn't notice the heaviness as much. Both kids enjoyed making this and we'll do it again! Thanks for the recipe KitchenCraftsnMore!

      This bread looked and tasted great, plus it was real easy to make. The leftovers made wonderful toast too.
