This recipe is great. I was a little nervous since I don't have a bread machine, but I've learned you can make it without. Here's what I did. 1. Stir yeast in with warm milk and water. 2. I la...

This bread came out great. I made 3 8x3.5 loafs

Okay, I have give this 5 stars. I thought it was fantastic! I did add more water like others had mentioned. I also added cinnamon to the dough and in the filling and I didn't think it was too...

I would have rated this 5 stars except as written, the dough is much too dry. Luckily I checked on it while it was on the dough cylce in my bread machine because it was obvious I had to toss in...
