I decided to make this upon hearing of Silent Cricket's untimely passing. This recipe was alot like her, from what I hear: wonderful, warm, nourishing, and loved by all. Thank you..

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!

Used this recipe to play with my new Kitchenaid mixer I got for Christmas. It was super easy to make and super tasty. The only thing is the recipe in the book calls for 1/3 C butter. By mistake I pit the egg white in too instead of keeping it to side. Still came out good. When I was mixing I started with the 5 1/2 cups and added the 1/2 C increments as needed. No issues. Great!!

This is an excellent recipe. I used low fat milk instead of water and one egg instead of 2, increasing the milk by 1/4 cup to replace the extra egg. I also reduced the sweetener to 1/4 cup and used light brown sugar instead of honey. A tip is to butter your dough hook well so the dough doesn't climb up the dough hook. Oil doesn't work as well as butter in this case.

Excellent bread recipe. Makes 2 large, hearty, delicious loaves! The only change I would make is to add the egg at the same time as the other liquids. I think that would make for easier mixing of all the ingredients.

Excellent recipe and certainly a keeper. Changes I made - I first proofed the yeast and add the other wet ingredients (except eggs) to the proofed yeast. I also used 60% brown flour. The bread turned out great though I did change the temp to 350 as per other suggestions.

This was delicious & very filling! The piece right out of the oven was so good! I put a little sea salt on top with the egg wash.

Excellent! We've given up buying bread and I bake 2 loaves 1-2 times a week. My husband loves it. I freeze one loaf and keep the other in a Rubbermaid bread keeper and it stays pretty fresh. Love this bread!

I have made this bread four times since I discovered the recipe. Every time it is eaten up, I make more. I love it and bake it 36 minutes in our oven.
