"This bread is most like the soft white bread that you buy at the store. If you like a softer crust, butter the top and put in a zip-loc bag."

"Hey thanks so much for this recipe...making it again for the 2nd time now...im trying 1cup of 2% milk in substitution for the dry milk as last time i found the dough was a wee bit dry and had to add a few tablespoons of water...we will see how it turns out.. a great recipe in which i will be using whenever i make sandwich bread!"
"The flavor on this bread is rich and yeasty. However, the dough was incredibly dry and unworkable. I wound up adding water, as well as olive oil, to try to make it a more manageable dough. The result was a heavy, dense loaf that - while tasty - lacked the fluffy personality that Wonderbread or any other sandwich-quality bread possesses. I am an experienced baker, and paid close attention to my measurements; however, I did not produce this with a bread machine as I don't have one. That being said, I've used other bread recipes that converted to no-machine production without any issue. So in a nutshell, nice flavor, but awful consistency."
"This the best bread I have tried. I made this to go with beef and barley soup and what a great combo. I have tried a BUNCH of them, but they usually leave a yeasty taste. I am not fond of that but this bread didnt have that at all! I am very impressed, I will be using this recipe over and over again, no more looking I have found it! It is very easy to do also, Thanks so very much!"
"We loved this bread! I liked the addition of the potato flakes and powdered milk. Sliced up beautifully and makes fantastic toast. Made for 2008 Cookbook Tag. Thanks Khandi!"
"Great recipe. I especially appreciated the tip on proofing the yeast to reduce the yeasty flavor. It worked like a charm. I baked mine in the oven as I don't have a bread machine but it turned out very good. Terrific flavor and like the previous reviewer said, it had a "doughier" consistency than I'd expected. I'll probably leave it baking for a few extra minutes next time but there'll definitely be a next time. Thanks for posting :)"
"DH insisted on Wonder Bread for his Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches... and not one to purchase bread, I hopped on the Zaar to find this recipe. This is very similar to Wonder bread, only softer & 'doughier'. His NEW favorite version of white 'wonder' bread. Thanks for posting!"
