The directions don't include the sugar. As I was finishing mixing I realized I had just been following the directions without thinking. I added the sugar at the end of the mixing. The bread still turned out well rising nicely in the oven. I substituted 1c. ww flour. So cute! Easy and tasty too.
Original review 4/1/06--Excellent bread! I used my bread machine to do part of the kneading. It looked a little sticky in the machine so I added about 1/2 cup of wheat flour. Then it looked dry so I added a little honey. It came out perfect---crusty outside wonderful white bread inside. Note: 2nd time I made this we made 'caterpillar bread'.
I had a ball making this for my next-door 2 yo twins' birthday this morning. Doubt I'll get a bite of it so I can't rate on taste but it is quick and easy and TCFW. I used 3 raisins for each eye and I don't know what instant yeast is so I just used my regular "active dry" and it seemed to work just fine. A great kids' recipe. Thank you for posting it. One of the boys liked it so well he said my name for the first time!
What a cute idea! I made this recently and my little siblings loved it! The turtle-shaping instructions were easy to follow and the finished product was adorable! The bread also tasted very good and was moist and soft. I used a 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour in place of a 1/2 cup of white flour and no one noticed the difference. Thanks for a fun and yummy recipe; I will make it again!
This dough was so easy to work with! I substituted 1 c. of the flour with whole wheat used 2 TBSP. of sugar 2 TBSP. of butter and added about 1 TBSP. of honey to the milk/butter mixture before adding it in to the yeast mixture. I didn't have the instant yeast so I let it rise about 1 hour shaped it and then let it rise another 30 minutes. Brush with egg wash and again with butter right before it comes out
This bread was my first attempt at making bread so I was pleased because it is really easy to do. It is very plain tasting bread so I'll probably make it again and try the salt on top or maybe put more salt in the recipe. I would recommend it though as it is very cute and I feel like making it again at some point. Give it a shot! You'll like it!
This is the best bread recipe i have ever made!! I have it in a cookbook not from this site but they are extremely similar and when i make it its gone within a few hours. Its especially good warm out of the oven
The end result of this is just well adorable. However taste wise it is lacking. I plan to try this again at another time with a favorite more flavorful bread. It's actually quite quick to make though for a bread. I microwaved the milk instead of cooking it on the stove and the rise time is very little. The recipe also makes one kind of large loaf of bread. It is about the same size quantity wise of a typical loaf of bread.
