This turned out great, could be a tad sweeter though. I left out the potato flakes (didn't have any) and substituted almond extract for lemon (didn't have lemon either). I would definitely make this again.
I can't even believe how close to the original this bread is. My entire family LOVES it. I've made it in the bread machine twice . . . the second time I had better luck by 3/4 the recipe (my machine holds 2 pound loafs and this is over 2 pounds as written). Also, I use orange juice instead of lemon extract and liquid milk - and reduce the water accordingly. I baked on light white setting, it will likely burn on sweet bread. I didn't make any change to the amount of flour used, it was just fine. Thank you SO much for the fantastic recipe!!
We love this bread! The 1st time I made it, I didn't pay attention to the 2-1/2 lb loaf, yea! what a mess, I thought it looked like a lot of yeast for 3c of flour but I haven't had this machine long, anyway it was great, as we were pulling pieces off the edges it reminded me of crescent rolls (flaky) I didn't use instant potatoes because I don't have that product but other than that I went by the recipe almost. lol I used buttermilk and added approx 1 tbls flour to sub for potatoes. I have a loaf cooling as we speak that I cooked in the oven on parchment paper and a pizza stone 400 for 21 min. OMG! I couldn't wait any longer, it is light, fluffy and delish! I would not add any extra flour to this recipe, the more flour, the heavier the bread, I had rather pour it out than dig it out. No it is not that sweet but I usually cut back on the sugar anyway and if you ask me it's better than what you buy. Thank you for sharing this bread with the world! God Bless You!
Even my picky eaters loved this bread! I took the advice of others who posted and made the dough in the bread machine but shaped into balls and baked in the oven. Yum!
This bread turned out well for me. I added 2 extra tablespoons of sugar to the dough. I also used orange extract instead of lemon. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This recipe is one of those that goes together in minutes and turns out spectacular. So light, fluffy and just a hint of sweetness. I followed the recipe exactly until it came to shaping, then I made into rolls. They rose so pretty, oh yes and I brushed the tops with an egg wash prior to baking for a shiny top. Froze half of the dough for later (there's only 2 of us) and planning to make ham sliders with it later. The results of this recipe sure made me proud, and I'll be making them often
This bread was a hit! I substituted warmed pineapple juice for the milk, and didn't put in the potato flakes or lemon extract, because I didn't have any. When the dough cycle on my machine was finished, I put it in the microwave with a cup of water I'd heated for 1 minute to proof for 1 hour. Then I baked it at 375 covered in foil. It was wonderful. Bravo!
DELICIOUS, SOFT, AND SWEET!! I read that many people were wanting a sweeter bread, so I changed the sugar to 1/3 cup. Also, I only had one egg, so I substituted the second egg for 3T of mayo, and it came out wonderfully! When I say SOFT, I mean softer than Bunny bread! Yum!
This was my 5th loaf of bread in a very old bread machine. All the others were supposed to be "healthy" and tasted terrible. My 5 yr old twins walked in while the bread was on the bake cycle and couldn't wait for it to finish. They loved it, as did my husband and the neighbors. This is a great everyday bread for sandwiches and awesome for French Toast.
Delicious! Although, I did make a few amendments. First, I used a 6 oz. can of pineapple orange juice in place of the water, making up the difference with 2 oz water. I also used orange extract instead of lemon. I used the dough cycle on my bread machine, took it out when done and then wrapped it in plastic wrap to let it rest for 10 min. I then braided it and let it rise again for 30 min. I brushed it with a little melted butter and sprinkled it with sesame seeds. My husband is Greek and he says that it reminds him of the Greek Easter bread. It's our new favorite bread! Thanks for sharing!
