I made subs out of these and although they were a little too dense for my liking, the taste was outstanding. I think these would make better dinner rolls then subs- I'm going to hang on to this one! Thanks for sharing!

This was excellent! Made just as recipe states. Next time I will add some garlic powder and Italian seasoning and make into dinner rolls. Thanks for sharing.

A very dense sweet bread that took a while to rise (I did it without a bread machine) but was worth it. I let it knead in the Kitchenaid mixer for 5 minutes before putting in a greased bowl to proof for 45 minutes. I then shaped it into a single, large loaf in a greased loaf pan and let it rise for another 45 minutes. I baked it at 350F for about 40 minutes due to its side and pulled it out when the internal temperature was above 185F.
I also made a wheat variant- substituted a cup of the bread flour with wheat flour and replaced the sugar with an equal amount of honey. I added another quarter cup of flour after it mixed together because it was a bit too moist and let it knead for five minutes in the mixer. Let it proof, shaped and rise as above. This was also very very good.
Great recipe, thanks for sharing. Just what I needed for my craving for a sweet bread.

If I could give this recipe 10 stars I would!!! I made one big loaf and it was incredibly light and delicious! I made it yesterday and my DH has scarfed down half of it already!!! Need I say more? :) I baked my bread same temp setting for 25 minutes. Thank you! This is a keeper! Jelly

I don't have a bread machine so I had to knead by hand. I don't like how the bread turned out. Very dense. Could have been b/c my lack of a bread machine, I'm not sure.

Love this!! I added about 1tsp of dry italian spices and a bit more sugar. It makes fantastic subs. I make them for my husband who eats rather large subs. I got 3 large sub rolls from this recipe. I did have to increase cooking time a few min to compensate for the size. I also buttered the crust when it came out of the oven. Its a keeper!

Fast and easy to make with the bread machine. I made it into 8 balls for rolls, and put them on baking paper in a 9 x13 pan. They didn't fill the pan, but no problem. I ate one immediately out of the oven with butter, they would make good hamburger buns too, or hot dog buns in a different shape. Dense, but not heavy for us. I used regular white flour and 1/2 cup of it was whole wheat. Beautiful, fast results, no bread knowledge needed. We are using them as dinner rolls with soup. I will definitely make these again and again.

This bread is a bit heavy and bready for my personal taste. Others might like it like that though.
