Food Processor Loaf Bread

"Fast and easy and good. I got this recipe from my food processor recipe book about 20 years ago. It's real good and faster than the dough setting on my bread machine (although I also love my bread machine)."

    What exactly does it mean to “reprocess” the dough ?

    Very yummy bread! Easy to make also! I have now traded my old recipe for this one for my staple load bread! Thanks for sharing this!

    I bake this bread all the time, it's an easy way to make a basic loaf of bread, and lets you know exactly what's in the bread you're serving your family.

    I have made this bread about 20 times now, really! I prepare communion bread each month as a deacon at my church. The congregation always looks for leftovers. My 22 year old son makes this now when we have beef stew or pasta fagioli. So easy and delicious hot from the oven. A belated thanks to Darlene.


I would like to let you all know that I am no longer able to review your recipes that I have tried. since they changed the site around webtv does not supprt zaars new site.I have a webtv not a computer and webtv does not support the new recipezaar site. so I will no longer be able to review your great recipes,nor will I be able to put my own recipes on here.Please don't think I wouldn't like to review your recipes,it was one of the nice parts of zaar that I did enjoy doing. So please forgive!!! I am Married to the same guy for 40 years,I Have 2 beautiful Daughters, who have given me 6 grand and glorious grandchildren. I love to cook,in fact you could call it my favorite hobby My pet peeve is telemarketers,Every time I get busy with my recipe hobby one of them will call and knock me off the web,and of coarse I waste precious time getting back on.I am disabled,so I no longer work,and have plenty of time to pursue my hobby. My best dish I make is Lasagna but thats just because I love lasagna.I am also asked to bring No-Bake cookies at all of our potlucks, and linger-longers at church.Meat loaf is another often requested dish I am asked to bring...... NOT MY meatloaf but .... My husbands. He is as good a cook as I am,He can cook anything I can cook, and I can cook anything he can cook,but some things I make better,and some He makes better...So we do a lot of compromising at our house.
