"This makes four loaves of lovely, homemade bread that's great for freezing. I remember this bread fondly as the perfect base for open-faced hot sandwiches. The prep time is approximate, depending on how fast your yeast takes to rise."
Serving Size: 1 (3416 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"I really wish that I could give this recipe more than 5 stars, because 5 stars doesnt even begin to describe how GOOD this bread is. I cut the recipe down to make one loaf, and made rolls out of it. The dough is just beautiful, and it raised so quickly! They taste SO amazing...so fluffy and soft. This is definitely going to be my perm. bread recipe for when I have a bit of extra time. Thanks so much!!!! I cant believe this has be posted for almost a year and has never been made. People reallllllllllly dont know what they are missing!!!!"
"Very good, easy to make! My daughter loves this for her PBJ sandwiches!"
"Okay here is the thing... I had yeast in the cabinet havent use it ever decided to use it found this. didnt look at the serving size till have way in it and found it was for four loafs got a little upset at my mistake but in the end it was well worth it like love4culinary said "I really wish that I could give this recipe more than 5 stars...""
"My husband and kids loves this bread!! All 4 loaves were gone in a few days."
"I decided to branch out and try some other bread recipes besides the whole wheat I have always used. I'm glad I did. I put 2 unbaked rounds into the freezer after the first rising and baked 2 huge loaves last weekend.My Kitcheaid couldn't handle the volume so I had to finish kneading by hand. I also used butter in place of the shortening and will do this again.Thanx for the recipe and for helping stock my freezer!"
"My mother-in-law, long deceased, made the best bread I've ever tasted. This matches it and that means a superb compliment. My wife says don't change anything in this recipe, but I did need to bake an additional 5 minutes to finish baking it."
"Very easy to make. I needed to bake mine about 10 minutes longer to get it brown enough, but that was no big deal. This is an awesome recipe! Now the wifey is spolied because she's no longer gonna want the store bought bread. LOL!I will try this again with wheat flour and see how it comes out. Look for a rating soon using wheat flour. :::::makes happy face while stuffing face with fresh baked bread::::::"
"My family loved this recipe. They said that everytime I make bread I should use this recipe."
"My b/f doesn't like wheat bread - I don't like store bought bread so this is a great recipe for both of us. The only thing I did different was add 4 teaspoons of gluten. I never would have thought of scalding the milk, but it MAKES the bread. Thanks!"
"So light and fluffy. VERY good bread!"
"i agree with love4culinary about this recipe. The dough was beautiful, rose quickly and made wonderfully white, light delicious bread. I modified the directions, adding flour one cup at a time as directed in recipe #55336--French Bread: Yummy and Easy! It worked well."
