    WJKing's Note:

    Delicious, basic bread recipe. Yummy! When I make this recipe, I bake one, and freeze the other two loaves, then use them later. To use later, I simply thaw in greased bread pan & let rise above & continue to follow same directions as posted. Enjoy!

      This really makes a lovely loaf of bread. I've tried a lot of white bread recipes (many of them more complicated) and none have come out so light and fluffy. My only mistake was not doubling the batch! I brushed some melted butter on top of the loaf just before I popped it in the oven, to make it crusty on the outside.

      Yes, this turned out nicely. My guests loved it and asked for the recipe. I froze the extra loaves and have since used them and your directions for that were great, thank you.

      OMG! DELISH!!! Look no further....I know I'm not. I used butter instead of lard, brown instead of white sugar, & only had quick rise yeast on hand(used 2/3 the amount as substitution for active yeast). Turned out to be the most moist and flavourful bread I have ever had! Thank you!
