This is excellent. I could not believe cold water but followed exactly and WHOA nelly, thid makes a huge loaf of bread plus. I made a 1 lb loaf of bread plus 8 rolls for dinner sandwich size. The taste is light but fragrant. I followed the AP flour with wheat gluten directions. Thank you so much for those. Will be made often!!! ZWT Kitchen Witches

Thanks for this recipe! So easy. I used the AP flour plus gluten version, but added a little more gluten at a ratio of 1 T per cup. I'm surprised how long it's lasting without going stale, too, given the lack of fat. Love how light it is.

Cold water? Really?
Cold water. Really.
This is wonderful bread, and makes excellent toast. I used the dough cycle on my ABM, and baked in an oval casserole dish. We ate every crumb within 24 hours, even though the loaf was enormous! Thanks for posting!

This is indeed an excellent bread and so simple to prepare. We loved the texture, and it is great toasted or untoasted. I made it in my ABM this time, and next time will try using the ABM simply to mix the dough, and shape the loaf by hand. Thank you for a simple, wholesome and delicious recipe, UC! This recipe was made in loving tribute to Little Bit.
