    Something else. For my first bread machine experience this recipe was very easy and most importantly the family loved it. I did bake it in the oven and not in the bread machine, I controlled the colour and texture of the crust better in the oven. Carol  -  15 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. I used sunflower oil instead of butter.The best recipe I've used so far, much better than any in the instruction manuel.  -  11 Sep 2010


    Used different ingredients. I used 1/2 wholemeal and 1/2 white flour. This made a lovely brown loaf. Much better than any recipie in my instruction manual  -  28 May 2010
