About this recipe:This recipe was never written down (that I know of) until my Gran shared it with me when she was in her nineties. It always turns out perfectly for me, so I wanted to share it. It makes 3 loaves, so you might want to freeze one or two of them.

I am a big fan of this recipe, but I no longer add the sugar - I find its too sweet with it and omitting it does not prevent it from rising. - 28 Nov 2009
Yummy bread and so easy in a mixer. I like to put the loaves in tins and place them in the freezer before they rise. Then I can have home baked bread any day I want. Just leave the frozen dough out in the morning to rise all day and bake it in the evening. This bread tastes good with everything, but be careful, it goes quick! - 14 Jul 2008
This bread was delicious. There are only two of us so three loaves was too much. I cut the dough in thirds like the recipe says and used two for bread, and the third for a pizza base. I spread it out on a baking tray greased lightly with oil and let it rest for about fifteen minutes. I put my toppings on and baked it for 30 min. till the crust was browned. It was delicious. Will definately use this again. - 14 Jul 2008
