This is great bread for making toast and dunking in coffee. It is also great for making French toast.

This bread is great! The loaf is so soft and not nearly as dense as other recipes I've tried. It makes great toast too like the description says :) This is now my go-to bread recipe, I make it twice a week!

Honestly, this recipe rocks. The only thing I do differently is I used the darkest setting on our bread machine for a firm crust but other than that, it's do exactly as it says and you'll have great results. Thanks for posting it.
