My wife and I had to look through a ton of bread recipes to find one with instructions for making it by hand (we don't have a bread maker and don't want one). This recipe is simple, has no oil or dairy (we just used a non-stick bread pan, and not spraying the kneading bowl didn't cause any problems), and it tastes great! This is now in our permanent recipe list.

Bread has a great flavor and texture, but it tops out of a two pound bread machine. Ideal if you are baking by hand, but I don't have the time.
