I think is great white bread! I did use only 1/2 teaspoon of salt, but otherwise did exactly as instructed. I think I will try baking it in a loaf pan next time, but it is awesome anyway. Thank you so much.

This is a good, basic bread recipe. The inside is very light and airy and the outside has a crispy crust. I did have some problems with the flour amount. I had to add at least an additional cup of flour to be able to handle it. Using the given amount, the dough looked almost like a batter. Of course, humidity may have something to do with this, so I would suggest adding 1/4 cup additional flour at a time. Other than that, followed to a "T"...thanks for sharing.

Yum! An excellent bread. I made this through the first rise in my bread machine, then rose a second time in a stoneware bread pan, and baked at 400F for between 25 and 30 minutes. I also needed to add more flour, the dough was just too wet not to. I added a little more than 1/2 cup, just enough to get from batter to dough. It was still sticky, which was fine, I just oiled my hands well before punching it down and shaping it. The texture of the finished loaf was crunchy on the outside, light and airy on the inside. It also had just a touch of sweetness that I just love. I had this for lunch today with just a slice of cheddar cheese on it- nothing else was needed. Thanks for posting a wonderful recipe! Made for ZWT6.

This is a very pleasant white bread, but it took some effort to achieve it. I mixed in the bread machine, and had to add an entire cup of flour just to get the machine to knead it right. It's tasty, though, and really nice for a sandwich bread. Made for ZWT 6.

This turned out very good. I did have some problem with the dough being "sticky", but that may have been because I ran out of all purpose and had to use 1/2 white wheat. It was a little too salty for taste- I will just cut that back next time. We made sandwiches with Danish Pork Burgers. Made for the Xtra Hot Dishes of ZWT6.

This makes a nice soft loaf. Like Andi, we couldn't wait for it to cool completely, it looked so pretty and smelled so nice. Thank you for a lovely bread recipe to add to my "keeper" collection! :)

This bread is a wonderful, light and a little crusty bread, for everyday use, as well as making this something special too. I did however, use my bread machine for the mixing, and rising, and finished off in the oven. Was so easy, and I really like the light crumb. Perfect for sandwiches as well as toast. My family got the knife out and started carving before this had completely cooled. Oh, well, I got a picture of the sandwich before that was gobbled down. Thanks Ellie, will be making this again! *ZWT3 07*
