Fabulous recipe! I too have tried many different recipes but this is the only one I will use in the future. Very easy to make and tastes great.

This recipe worked out really well for me. I baked one small loaf and then froze some rolls and another loaf. Thanks for a great recipe!

Fantastic white bread recipe, thank you so much! My boyfriend said it reminds him of the bread his Grandma used to bake and she was a great cook! I really like both the flavor and texture of this bread. I bake 1 loaf for myself and 1 for my boyfriend and freeze the other loaf. When I need to use the frozen loaf I place it in a well greased pan and cover it with a towel before I go to work. I rub the top of the loaf with a stick of butter when it comes out of the oven for a tasty, soft, lovely crust.

LOVE it! I was going to bake the bread I frequently do, but didn't have enough yeast. I had yours printed, so went for it. Am I glad?! I had only 1 cup of bread flour; the rest was whole wheat. (Oh, and used shortening; next time will get lard.) Still, came out VERY soft, delicious! Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe

What a well written, wonderful tasting bread!! First time bread maker, and it was great!! ALL of it is gone, and husband said it was a "do-over" which means it will be a staple. Very light!! Did brush the top with butter as others suggested, which yielded a nice golden crust!! Thank you!

Great recipe, and so easy! I also used vegetable oil instead of lard and it turned out great. THANK-YOU for sharing this recipe!

This is a great recipe. Very easy to make. I added a little extra flour (7cups+). Really light and airy. I actually used the lard! I used to make a bread with butter and milk. This recipe is much better with the water and lard.

Wonderful bread recipe. I had only made bread a few times and it was always so heavy - not with this recipe. It was light, had a great texture, and tasted awesome. This is my main bread recipe from now on. The last time I made it, I was a cup and a half short on regular flour and substituted with whole grain flour, and it was super... I love this recipe and so does my family.
