Great bread, crispy outside chewy inside, excellent flavor and texture. I also used the dough cycle then let it rise for about another 1 on top of the warm stove. After baking it I cut 6 deep slits in the loaf, spread garlic butter inside the slits then stuffed with cheese and baked for another 15 minutes. YUMMY! Thanks.

We loved this bread! It had a nice crisp crust and soft center. One of the best loaves we've had fixed entirely in the bread machine!

I made the dough in the Kitchenaid mixer, and then baked in oven, it came out high and chewy great tasting bread. I will be making this again when we have homemade soup definitly. Thanks.
