Lovely bread...fragrant...crusty on the outside, fluffy on the inside. When cooled, extremely easy to cut. I didn't add the magarine. I substituted it with one tablespoon of applesauce. It worked fine. Great bread...might throw in some sunflower seeds next time.
This was a light and slightly sweet bread. Good sliced hot or cold and really good with some brown sugar turkey breast on top. I can't wait to try it as a dough for sticky buns!!!
YUMMY! I added an extra teaspoon of vanilla, and used brown sugar instead of white. Had it with honey and butter. Thanks!
Oh, yummy! This is excellent toasted and spread with butter and honey. Very fragrant loaf when baking. Slices really nicely when cooled. I might try this with vanilla bean next time to see if I can intensify the vanilla flavor. This bread has the makings of a tea time favorite.
Well, I had some sour cream I needed to use up and went hunting for recipes, lo and behold this was one that cropped up. I was skeptical , but what the hec. Yesterday I made it and there is only about 2 inches left, if that. So I'm making another loaf at this moment. Had to add a tad more water as the machine was almost jumping off its stand. Now maybe it will be worth getting my bread slicer out.If it only lasts that long (sigh) Well, as you can see it was much enjoyed.
Very good bread. Nice texture and flavor. Not as sweet as I expected, but you could make it sweeter if you wanted. I especially liked this recipe for dinner rolls. I will try using it for cinnamon rolls next and use brown sugar instead. I can't wait!! Thanks for posting.
I love the texture of this bread, it is soft and fluffy. It made my bread machine dance around the counter a bit, but turned out a normal size loaf with a hint of vanilla.
my attempt was a dismal failure...the exterior was not only crusty, it actually cracked apart significantly in two places...with the inclusion of sour cream I expected an airy interior but when the loaf only rose by 50Â°, it was dense instead...toasted a couple slices but the yeasty, strongly vanilla taste and dense texture was unpleasant...I'm sorry :-(
I was very pleased with the outcome of this recipe. I made it two ways--by mixing the dough in the machine AND by mixing with my Kitchen Aid on medium high for about 5 minutes or so--then baking in the oven as others have stated (350 for 30 minutes). I allowed the dough I mixed with the KA to sit on the counter for the duration of the machine cycle. Then, I allowed both to rise for about another hour. The AMB loaf was HUGE compared to my other loaf. It was spilling over the side; I think I can manage two loaves out of it next time. I also used brown sugar as someone else suggested. The taste of the ABM loaf was very good (I gave the other as a gift and am hoping it was as delicious) and I liked the more traditional looking loaf. Although I love my ABM, I prefer the shape of a traditional loaf.
Excellant! I didn't use a bread machine either, just mixed by hand and 350 for 30 minutes like KC Cooker said.. definate keeper, thanks..
