This is my new go-to bread recipe. It is amazing. I do not have a bread machine so for me, the "dough" setting is mixing everything in my kitchen aid for about 10mins set on 4 with a dough hook and then allowing the bread to rise for about an hour. After my "dough" cycle has finished, I continued with the recipe as written and could not be happier. My family ate this bread up so fast, I had to make it again the next day.
*hint* it makes a huge delicious difference if you do brush it with butter as soon as it comes out of the oven. I highly recommend this recipe to the beginner and seasoned baker alike. Just remember the most important ingredient is patience.
If you are looking for a soft fluffy bread, this is perfect.

This is a 10* recipe in our eyes! WOW! fantastic bread. My hubby is on cloud 9, he had 4 slices as soon as it came out of the oven today. I had forgotten to add the sugar but I don't think it harmed the flavor at all. I also used 2% milk instead of the powdered milk and I used bread flour that I use for baking bread.As soon as it came out of the oven, I brushed some melted butter over the entire loaf. This is most certainly a favorite in our house from now on! Thanks so much for sharing this marvelous bread!!

I wanted to make a soft white loaf which I could tweak by adding some wholemeal flour so I figured that this was a good recipe to try. I followed the recipe but used 2 1/2 cups bread flour and 1/2 cup stone-ground wholemeal flour. I also substituted brown sugar instead of white, used full-fat milk instead of powder and butter instead of margarine. Well, the bread rose beautifully, baked perfectly and was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend this recipe for a brown loaf.

My new favorite bread recipe. Easy and foolproof. The taste is wonderful. I did proof the yeast first as I don't trust it from past experience, but everything turned out great. We ate most of the loaf with lots of butter. Later I made my 81 year old mother a grilled cheese sandwich that turned out perfect. Thanks.

This bread always comes out wonderful. I followed Jenna's directions for using the Kitchenaid instead of the bread machine and it was light and fluffy and yummy. Of course I had help from my trusty kitchen companion that you can see in my photos. This bread is fluffy and soft. Way better than Wonder.

Seriously, best recipe I've ever used! I even stopped buying bread at the store, I make a double batch and refrigerate one and bake one so I only make dough every other day and have fresh bread every day! I tweak it slightly differently each time and always comes out awesome

Even though today is Friday the 13th.,2012, I sure didn't have any bad luck when I made this bread.:) Instead of AP flour,bread flour was used.I did have to add about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of extra flour to get the dough into ball form. Instead of letting the dough rise for only 40 minutes, it was left to rise for a total of 1 hour.The bread was baked @350 degrees for 25 minutes,and turned out perfect.Since I didn't have enough willpower to let it cool off, I had a couple of slices with margarine and it was PERFECT !!!. Thank you so much for posting and, "Keep Smiling :) "

This is a family favorite. I make it on the dough cycle and then remove from the bread maker, place the dough in a loaf pan, let it rise, and then bake it in the oven. The boys don't like me buying bread anymore.

This bread is fantastic. Depending on how much you let it rise, it can be dense, or fluffy (I like denser bread, while my friend likes fluffy bread), but still tastes amazing. I eat slices of the bread plain, that's how good it is.
