    Amazing, perfect!!! Lovely bread, rose well, tastes delicious. Well ABSOLUTEY make again!! One thing though, I didn't bother mixing yeast, water and sugar separately at the beginning. Just chucked it all in, and still came out brilliantly!  -  11 Oct 2014


    Easy bread. I don't have a bread machine so used the allrecipes site advice on coverting bread machine recipes to regular methods. (You will find it under baking advice.) Definately need to up the water by 1/4 cup and I like a sweeter bread so upped the sugar to 1/3 cup. I also used dry buttermilk powder instead of just dry milk. Really good!  -  25 Dec 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love this recipe! I have used it over and over again, and it is always a hit. I prefer to bake it in the oven rather than in the machine, because the top rises too much for my bread machine. Most of the time I sub 1 c. whole wheat flour for the white. I have made cinnamon raisin bread: add 1 tablespoon cinnamon, more sugar and some raisins. I have made garlic bread: add a couple of minced garlic cloves and some italian seasoning. This recipe makes great italian breadsticks, just roll it out, twist and bake.  -  10 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
