"This is a measured variation of a Nanny Stackhouse recipe. She made 9-12 loaves of this delicious bread every Saturday to give away to family and friends. The Monticello Grange sure misses her cooking!"

"I made this last night again. This time I added a tablespoon of honey; the husband said it was perfect."
"I just sliced this and it is amazing! I made two loaves a bread a week, this will be my new white bread recipe. For the second rising in the loaf pans I only needed to rise mine for 15-20 min. I also only needed to bake mine for 25 min. Came out perfect. Thanks for posting!"
"I was pretty worried that this recipe was going to be a bust. After 30 minutes of baking, I checked the bread. The top was getting close to being burnt but the internal temp of the bread was only 120F. I decided to stick it out and leave it in for another 10 minutes and I am sure glad I did. The top did get a little darker than i would have liked but otherwise this loaf was GREAT! I veganized it by substituting powdered soy milk for the dry milk and, as one of the other reviewers mentioned, I didn't use nearly as much flour as you suggested. It was getting late after the first rise, so I put half in the fridge and half in the freezer. I am new to bread baking so I didn't know how this would effect the recipe but it seemed fine. Thanks so much for this recipe. Taste-wise, I think it might have been the best loaf I have made so far."
"A keeper recipe and very delicious bread. I've made this twice now and haven't used near the amount of flour called for, but I just adjust as one must do when making bread! Thank you Aroostook."
"Absolutely delicious. Crusty outside and soft and velvety on the inside. Thank you so much for a delicious recipe. It deserves 10 stars!! "
"It came out very well, soft and crumby. I used half bread flour and half plain flour. Got two big loaves (4x8 pans). Friends said it is very nice and soft. I used instant mash potatoes with butter and herbs and 11g of instant yeast. It's one of the most successful loaves I've ever made!"
