The smell of homemade bread baking is one of life's simple pleasures. This one was excellent in all ways--texture, taste, and smell. My mom and I made this together in memory of Silent Cricket. "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all." Proverbs 31:29

This is fabulous, addictive tasting bread. Yum! My whole family has gobbled it up which is wonderful! I had a couple of issues while making it though. At the end of 7 minutes of the kneading my KitchenAid overloaded and shut off.... never seen that happen before. I only used 6 cups of flour so I hadn't even put in the maximum amount. And... cooking it at 375* seemed way too hot an oven and I had to pull it out at 25 minutes leaving a bit of a doughy bottom. I think I'll cook it at 350* for 40 minutes next time instead. Otherwise - wonderful, wonderful and I'll make it again soon. Love it!
