    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    The original recipe used all white flour but we have found we prefer the half and half. It is a good bread to serve with soups and spaghetti. Preparation includes rise time.

      Great! I am also going to try it with 3 cups WW to 1 cup Bread flour and see how that goes. Try it!

      Make sure to not cook it for the full 30 minutes. Even when I made the whole amount of dough the first time, it was done in 25 minutes. I just did half the dough and it was done in 20.

      Oh, and my kids LOVE it. They are 3 and 2.

      Made this yesterday and it was delicious! The only thing is that I used all whole wheat flour. Best eaten fresh out of the oven. I'm making it again today. This time I will substitute the oil with butter to help cut on the calories.
