A quick 58 minute white bread that is super yummy. Perfect for people who just do not have 3 1/2 hours to wait for their bread to cook. Low in sugar and sodium. I make a loaf of this each and every day. Makes enough for a family of 6 each day. Mmmmmm. If your not needing to cut back on sodium or sugar, you can add 1/2 tsp of salt and 1 tbsp of sugar.

This is a great base recipe. I decreased the yeast by 1t, added about 1/2t salt and used my machines 80min quick bread cycle. Turned out great....but a little crumbly. Will use this recipe for all my last minute bread needs. Thanks volkswagon mama!

Ok, I was skeptical of this recipe at first but decided to try it anyway. I did make some alterations though. I could not see using 5 teas. of yeast, sounded like too much. So I used 1 packet (1/4oz) Rapid Rise Fleishman's yeast plus an additional 1/4 teaspoon. I also added 2 pinches of salt (it needed it) and 1 level teaspoon of sugar (to feed the yeast). Set it on my rapid bake cycle (I have a Hitachi -cycle is 2 1/2 hr cycle) It rose great and the flavor is pretty good! I did not have flax seed, but I used whole ground flax seed meal. I served it with Rosemary Butter. Delicious! I think I'll try adding Rosemary to the mix and try it that way. Perhaps 1/2 tsp of dried rosemary should do. On a side note. Without any salt, it would be pretty bland. Will make it again! Thanks for posting!
