Questions & Replies

  1. Is this recipe for a 2lb loaf?
  2. What would be the adjustment for 6800' elevation please?
  3. It looks as if this bread should have cinnamon in the recipe. However, I don’t see it in the ingredient list.


  1. Minor changes as follows: I used one cup non fat milk, a whole egg & added 1 tsp. vanilla. Made as dough only in the bread machine, then rolled into a rectangle, buttered, and spread with brown sugar accented cinnamon sugar. I then rolled it up, placed in a bread pan and baked at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes. Grandson said it was "dangerously delicious!"
  2. This bread was super easy to make and turned out perfect! Reminds me of Hawaiian bread, but not quite as sweet. Will make again.
  3. Very good! I'll make this again.
  4. Great bread recipe. I even messed it up a little and it still came out good. Luckily I checked to see how it was mixing up and it was so soupy. I realized I had only added 2 cups of flour. I had enough time to add the third cup. It didn't rise as much as usual, but I think that was my fault. The flavor is great, you know its a sweet bread without it being overly sweet. Wonderful with butter when its still warm! Thanks!
  5. A sweet very light bread. I would suggest to cut back to 2 teaspoons of yeast or to be baked in the oven. My bread did rise so high that it did hit the top and stuck slightly. Thanks!


I have two boys who will usually eat most things I put in front of them. As a single mom I use them as my guinea pigs....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have a huge garden, blueberry and blackberry bushes. I am always looking for a new recipe. I have three cats (Xiao Mao, which means little cat in Chinese, Pumpkin and Max) and two border collies, Lucy and Grace. All my animals come from Rescue Agencies. <a href="¤t=rsc002.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><a href="¤t=006.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><a href="¤t=hilfiger001.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
