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!
Made the whole wheat version - it was really great bread.
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!
Absolutely MARVELOUS! I cut the recipe in half and worked out well. Tonight I made my 2 loaves again, this time I used just 1 cup water and 2/3 cup soy milk...MUUUCCCHHHHH better; so light and fluffy! A definite winner in my home. Thanks!
The only problem with this recipe is that my husband complians if I buy store bought bread! I let it rise twice before putting it in loaf pans, I also cut the salt in half. it was great texture a wonderful all-purpose bread, even for pb&j!
Delicious and easy! My family loved this bread. My son asked if I put a secret ingredient in it to make it taste so good! Thanks for sharing!
I tried the wheat version of this recipe yesterday. It's gotten rave reviews from friends and family I fed it to. Delicious! :o)
Very nice homestyle bread, light and soft inside with a lovely golden crust. Thanks for posting this Tammie.
Very good basic bread. I made the whole-wheat version, and it turned out great. I was glad to find a recipe that yielded more than one loaf of bread. You get four loaves of bread for pretty much the same amount of work that it would take for a single loaf. The recipe is very easy to follow. I did substitute Smart Balance for the shortening, and the bread still turned out great. I'll definitely make this again!
