      great recipe! I did half the recipe, the whole wheat version, and replaced the shortening with olive oil. I also just added a pinch of sugar rather than 1/8 c. I do think I would lower the salt next time as well. Just a personal preference, but I felt it is a bit salty. thanks for sharing!

      This is the first yeast bread I have ever been successful with! If I can do it anyone can. Be sure to grease your loaf pan before baking. It is not written in the recipe but sure does help!
