WOW! This is an amazing bread! I double it, because my bread pans (4) are welded together (commercial pans). It makes both great toast and sandwiches. This is in my bread rotation. I make all my own breads and this is a very delightful addition. I only wish I could five this 10 stars!! Thank your for posting.
