This is a hearty white bread I put in my bread machine, and the kids just love it. I have used non-fat cottage cheese also.

I like this recipe! I definitly would recommend it. BUT like everyone else said it calls for WAY to much yeast. I experimented, thinking maybe the extra yeast was called for because it was a rapid bake (the recipe doesn't specify a bread machine setting after all), but even in rapid back the full amount of yeast lifted my bread machine lid off. reducing the recipe by a whole tsp. is definitly necessary to get a better loaf, and I personally like how it cooks in your basic bread/white bread setting best.

I have had a bread machine for six years, and this is the best of any bread that I have made. It raised over the top, so I will have to calm it down the next time. Read More

This is a great white bread recipe! I added an extra tablespoon of sugar and changed the margarine to vegetable oil. It has a nice tang to it from the cottage cheese and I like the added protein. I will for sure put this on my favorites list! Read More

This bread is wonderful! *I did not use a bread maker for this recipe.* I love that the cottage cheese adds moisture & protein to the bread. I have made this 2x and 1 of the times I followed it as is except for substituting 1c of whole wheat flour for all purpose flour. I didn't use bread flour either time i made it. When I used the wheat flour I kept the yeast at 2 1/4t & it worked perfect. It is a large loaf though. I have a larger loaf pan w/ straight sides & it worked perfect in this pan (not sure the exact dimensions). I will add a little more sugar I think next time. It's a little 'sour' from the cottage cheese. The other time I made the recipe (with all, all-purpose flour) I used 1 1/2t yeast & did add 1T more sugar & it turned out perfect. Though, again, I did use my large loaf pan, as it does make a large loaf. So......my suggestions would be to add about 1T more sugar & if you use all-purpose or bread flour you could probably cut the yeast to 1 1/2t. If you use some wheat flour (I suppose because it's more heavy??) I would use the recipe amt (2 1/4t) of yeast. A great recipe though. It's definitely in my mix of bread recipes. Read More

Very delicious bread! I made mine on the dough cycle and baked in the oven. I also used olive oil instead of margarine. I made 3 rolls and 1 loaf. I could easily have made 2 loaves as this was a very high riser. Read More

This recipe is taken verbatim from a recipe in "The Bread Machine Cookbook" by Donna Rathmell German. If you cut these measurements in half you will get a loaf that will not overflow in your breadmaker. I make the large loaf using the dough cycle remove the dough let it rise again and bake it in a regular oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Read More

Dara thank you for sharing this recipe. This is the best white bread I've ever had! The taste and texture are wonderful. It did rise too much when I was making it in my bread machine but I just put the dough in 2 loaf pans and let the bread rise again. Then I baked in a conventional oven. Read More

Came out absolutely perfect. The only thing I changed was the amount of yeast. I changed it to 1-1/2 tsp. It rose at just the right height and was not dense at all. Thanks Dara Read More
