I have been making bread for 27 years. This is the best I have ever made. It's texture is perfect and flavor is as well. I am so happy to have found this. I thought home made bread was doomed to be heavy and nothing like you could buy. I reccomend it highly! Read More

I followed this recipe exactly and the dough ball was way too moist. I wonder if the 1 3/8 cup water was supposed to be 1 1/8? Read More

This bread had a uniqueness that sets it apart from most breads made in "machines". The texture was firmer and less spongelike than what usually comes out of bread machines---by the way these qualites to me are WONDERFUL. I will make this bread often. Thank you for posting this recipe. Best wishes Jeff Read More

This turned out very well. I cut the sugar down to 1 T. the salt to 1-1/2 tsp. and used olive oil rather than vegetable oil. I used the bread machine from start to finish. Unfortunately my bread machine doesn't do well browning the top of the loaf so after removing it from the bread maker I brushed the top with butter and put it in a 375 degree oven for about 10 minutes. This is a soft moist basic white bread with great flavor. Read More

This is the best white bread recipe I've tried in my bread machines. I am using a basic cheap Breadman Ultimate machine and this bread turned out beautifully. It has great aroma texture and flavor. It's wonderful with butter or in a sandwich.The crust is beautiful. Read More
