This is an easy, tasty loaf of bread! Perfect for those of us (me included) that are afraid of bread making. I have even made it on my breadmakers quick cycle, and it is still perfect and tasty! I am going to make it for the third time right now! Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

Thanks, princess buttercup, this is a great recipe. No fuss, no muss. I like things easy and quick. Stuck this in the machine last night and just used dough cycle. Tried to make two thin baguetts, but my yeast is just too good. Anyway we liked the flavor and texture of the bread.

I increased the water to 1 3/8C and changed 1.5C bread flour for whole wheat flour. Most excellent!
