    startnover's Note:

    This is my favorite bread recipe (for white bread) It makes wonderful bread bowls for soup. This makes 4 loaves but can easily be halved. I've made half of it into loaves and half into breadbowls too.

      For raisin bread add 1 cup of raisins mixed with 1-2 t cinnamon per loaf, it makes great toast! My mother always "plumped" the raisins by soaking them or boiling them for a few minutes first.

      Pretty darn good. I quite enjoyed this bread and it seemed pretty idiot proof. I halved it and tossed it into two large loaf pans. It made lovely sandwiches. Very soft and tender bread. I think the idea of raisins and cinnamon would absolutely ROCK with this. I plan on trying it like that next week. I plan on making two batches tomorrow and freezing after the first rise. This way I can pull it out and let it thaw/second rise and have fresh bread for holiday company!

      I've made this wonderful bread at least 5 times. I just paired it with Lorac's Josephinas recipe which produced a lovely combination. Let the neighbors get a whiff of this and you'll be the envy of your neighborhood. Forgot, if not eaten in a day or two, freeze the remainder for another time.

      Easy to make and good flavor. I used the egg instead of the potatoes and substituted 5 cups of whole wheat flour for some of the white flour (I didn't have bread flour so I used all purpose flour.) The dough raised quickly! Thanks for the recipe!
