Hey thanks so much for this recipe...making it again for the 2nd time now...im trying 1cup of 2% milk in substitution for the dry milk as last time i found the dough was a wee bit dry and had to add a few tablespoons of water...we will see how it turns out.. a great recipe in which i will be using whenever i make sandwich bread!

I have made this bread 4 times now.. I follow the recipe exactly.. I add the flour a cup at a time and stop when the dough looks good and feels good. I know amounts of water vs flour needed can varry according to your elevation / area. This is THE go to bread. Sandwich bread , morning toast, grilled cheese.. this is THE best of the best. I even photo 'd the recipe for my jump drive, so that I won't loose it... ever. This is one of those recipies that convinces people I can do magic in the kitchen.. L O V E I T !!!

Very nice. I just tried this recipe today and my 82 year old mother loves it. In fact, she wanted a grilled cheese made with this bread and it turned out great. Most of the loaf was eaten with butter slathered on it. Thanks for sharing an easy and excellent recipe.

The flavor on this bread is rich and yeasty. However, the dough was incredibly dry and unworkable. I wound up adding water, as well as olive oil, to try to make it a more manageable dough. The result was a heavy, dense loaf that - while tasty - lacked the fluffy personality that Wonderbread or any other sandwich-quality bread possesses. I am an experienced baker, and paid close attention to my measurements; however, I did not produce this with a bread machine as I don't have one. That being said, I've used other bread recipes that converted to no-machine production without any issue. So in a nutshell, nice flavor, but awful consistency.

This the best bread I have tried. I made this to go with beef and barley soup and what a great combo. I have tried a BUNCH of them, but they usually leave a yeasty taste. I am not fond of that but this bread didnt have that at all! I am very impressed, I will be using this recipe over and over again, no more looking I have found it! It is very easy to do also, Thanks so very much!

We loved this bread! I liked the addition of the potato flakes and powdered milk. Sliced up beautifully and makes fantastic toast. Made for 2008 Cookbook Tag. Thanks Khandi!

Great recipe. I especially appreciated the tip on proofing the yeast to reduce the yeasty flavor. It worked like a charm. I baked mine in the oven as I don't have a bread machine but it turned out very good. Terrific flavor and like the previous reviewer said, it had a "doughier" consistency than I'd expected. I'll probably leave it baking for a few extra minutes next time but there'll definitely be a next time. Thanks for posting :)

DH insisted on Wonder Bread for his Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches... and not one to purchase bread, I hopped on the Zaar to find this recipe. This is very similar to Wonder bread, only softer & 'doughier'. His NEW favorite version of white 'wonder' bread. Thanks for posting!
