This is the best bread!!!! I was given a bread machine for my birthday but haven't used it much cause I haven't been crazy about the results of the recipes in the book that came with it. But this is the BEST I have found. It is so light and the loaf has a perfect shape and crust; I can't wait to make it up as dinner rolls.It reminds me alot of the main recipe my sister'in'law used for all her bread. This has the same texture and flavor as her recipe.
The only thing I did that wasn't in the recipe was to weigh my flour after I had carefully measured it . It was a little over the 5 oz.per cup so I took out the difference and the dough was perfect
I can't recommend this as is, for bread recipe at all. It is so sweet, it ruined the sandwich and garlic bread I made w/ it. The loaf I made sat in the fridge uneaten for a week as it was too sweet to use normally. Then I was out of groceries and I thought - aha! French toast. It made excellent french toast.
This would make great hot rolls too, but if you want to make a loaf of bread for the usual uses, cut back on the sugar BIG TIME. I did not use or need a bread machine to make this recipe, it was very easy.
Quick and delicious!
We've already made 3 batches of this bread... Since yesterday! I've just been using AP flour (it's all I've got right now), and the bread has come out great every time. The first two batches were made in the ABM on dough cycle, then I let them rest for about an hour, and threw them into a loaf pan. Both loaves were perfect, and sliced really easily, and thin enough for sandwiches. The third batch was also made in the ABM, but then I threw the dough into muffin tins, let rise, and baked. Once again, perfection! Thank you DDW!
I love to try new recipes and I absolutely HAD to try this one! My family gobbled these up and wanted me to make another batch. These are our 'go-to' dinner rolls. No more brown and serve.
This was the best bread recipe. It used ingredients that were already on hand. It was no fail!! My kids have each had 2 rolls and are asking for more!
I never loved bread crust 'til I made this bread in my machine. I love the crispy, flavorful crust as much as the light, fluffy inside. This is my go to recipe for bread now. I halve the recipe--it rises A LOT and always fills over 75% of my regular sized bread machine pan. I also never check the dough (after 5 minutes of mixing) since the first time, and It always turns out perfectly. I probably wouldn't use it for sandwiches--the insides may be a bit too soft. We just cut it and add butter to it with dinner, or add jams, apple butter or honey and make a light meal of it. Leftovers do get stale a bit quick, but they make GREAT breadcrumbs that are still yummy after freezing awhile. I can't attest to what the bread is like after completing the cooling cycle in the bread machine because we always rip that sucker out with potholders as soon as the fan comes on and scarf it down. ;)
Fabulous! My new go to recipe. Only thing I do different is a slightly higher temp & I put on cookie sheet as they get so big and that way they get baked in the middle. After cooled I put half in a bag in freezer and we eat the rest - just 2 of us. Lana
I also put my breadmaker on the dough setting, kneaded it just a little, let it rise 40 min., and baked on 350 for 20 min. Also used olive oil. Delicious! Fairly sweet- probably more sugar than we need, but we loved it! Makes a huge loaf, though, so pulling out some of the dough for rolls first or making 2 small loaves would probably work well.
DDW- I just made these dinner rolls for the first time and they are the best rolls ever! They are so easy to make! I can't wait to try your other recipes. Thank you for sharing!
