A wonderful soft white bread. My three children finished the loaf off within a half an hour! I substituted the oil for butter, only because I ran out of oil and didn't feel like running to the store. It turned out great.
I am a DISASTER when it comes to making bread, but this turned out BEAUTIFUL!! Thanks sooo much for posting this no-fail recipe. Light, fluffy, wonderful bread, made by me? Yep, with this recipe even I made awesome bread for once. Thanks a bazillion, Brenda! You rock!
Excellent.. M 4 r old son helped make this into cinnamon rolls! Lots of fun nd ver easy for him to understand! A real keeper. xx I did follow Chef#1550105 comment on using a mixer and separating the flour for ease of use for my son. Worked great! Little hands used!
