"First time ever making bread. Was asked by friends and family members to make more and some for them as well."
"I just made this recipe and I am thrilled with the results! We're a small family, so I made a half batch. The bread comes out so soft, slightly chewy and the bottom has a great light and crispy crust. PERFECT. I made them into "sub rolls" and seasoned the tops with an herb, salt, garlic, pepper and cheese mixture. We ended up with 15 single sized rolls which is more than enough! This recipe is easy enough to make, so I wouldn't mind making a fresh batch often. One thing I would change would be to add another 1/2-1 tsp of salt. But other than that, these are great!"
"I scaled this recipe down to make just 1 loaf and used it to make rolls. I really like the taste and textue of this bread. very easy to make also. Thanks for the bread recipe with instructions for those of us that don't have a bread machine."
"Really enjoyed this recipe! Make sure your pan is big enough or it will rise right out of the pan lol!"
"worst recipie ever!
do not even try to make it.
makes enough bread to feed a million people.
with 17 cups as the max. ammount of flour you can add it leaves the dough extremly sticky and hard to work with.
waste of time."
"I was looking for a simple bread recipe and boy did I find it! I now use this recipe for all my bread making needs... buns, cinnamon buns, and various breads! I love love love this recipe! Thanks soooo much for posting it!"
"I was looking for a different recipe for bread than I usually make and reading this one I thought I would try as it had such good directions. I only used 1/2 a recipe as it is only 2 of us.. I have never seen dough go over sides of the bowl like this one did. I did as the directions said and did not add more flour. My dough was very sticky and as it rose it flowed over sides of the bowl not up high. Even in the bread pan it flowed over sided and did not stand up tall. I put it in a cassarole dish now and it is baking. Boy I am not sure what I did wrong but it was very dense and had a very strong yeast taste almost like a sour dough. I could have never made it into rolls it would have flowed all over the pan. I baked one of the two loafs in a large casarole dish, it was better than the one in a loaf pan. sorry could not get it to work. Don't know what I did wrong"
"It's the best bread I ever made. It is realy light,tasty and very easy to make.Don't add flour during kneading (much flour making heavy dry bread) but keep greasing your hands each time the dough sticks on them. My 3 years old daugther ate 2 buns before dinner. Thank you so much."
"I think that there were a few snags in my prep. bread was dense and not "fluffy" oh well, guess it's back to the drawing board for me!"
"Too dry! Too much of a serving! Tastes like cardboard!"
"Excellent recipe. This bread was enjoyed by everyone in my family. I made 2 loaves worth of dough. I added fresh chives and grated cheese to one loaf and made the second batch of dough into rolls. I used muffin tins to bake the rolls in - these were great once cooked to split and add a poached egg and bacon! Great instructions and worked perfectly"
"i Love this recipe! only that the portion is too much for me ^_^ even so its wonderful."
"This is very easy and the texture and taste are great. There is nothing like homemade bread. I used olive oil and they turned out great. I made 3 round loaves. Thanks!"
"WOW - Holy rise on this recipe - what a great fluffy nice white bread. Thank you for posting one that is made the good old fashioned way...."
"i really enjoyed this recipe i have four little ones and they loved it.:) I have never ever tried making bread before and it was so fun and easy thank you for sharing it...:) Bread Lover:)"
"Made this as given, and although a sweeter bread than I am used to, this made up beautiful and light, a taste treat to boot. I think this will be the recipe I use to make cinnamon rolls from now on also. Thank you for a great recipe."
"It was very dry and didnt come close to tasting like White bread! I even added butter but no it still didnt tast very well, sorry! "
"I haven't made your bread yet but I truly appreciate the detailed directions on making bread. I don't have a bread maker and it is difficult to make bread using a recipe that says "put all ingredients into a breadmaker and wait". I appreciate the guidance and detailed instructions. Thanks."
