    I’ve made this a few times now. The bread comes out great every time! I use about 4 1/2 to 5 cups of flour. You have to go by the texture of the dough not the amount of flour in the recipe. I also use 8x4 pan this ensures the bread rises higher in the oven (which is what we like) and bake it for less than 20 mins in my oven. I put one load in the freezer and eat the first loaf right out of the oven. It’s so good!!

    Fabulous! I will definitely make this recipe, although next time o will shave 3-5 minutes off because they were too brown on top.

    Used this recipe because it used only 1 pkg of yeast and the least amount of sugar. We’ll see how it taste.

    It was delicious. It’s our go-to bread for French Toast recipes.

    Pretty good and easy recipe. But needed a little more salt and sugar for flavor and didn’t look as pretty

    I've made this recipe a few times and now that I've learned proper hand kneading techniques it comes out great everytime. My family likes a buttery crust, so after scoring the loaf I place small cold butter cubes (about 1 1/2 tbsp. in total per loaf) in the split and bake. Other recipes that I have tried this on remain soggy in that crease. This dough pulls the butter in and distributes it well for a richer flavor. Thanks for this hardy, versatile bread recipe.

    Loved it. I added roasted garlic, thyme and cheese during the kneading process. Great basic white loaf bread recipe that I find I can add what I want to it.

    I didn’t realize I was out of milk, so I had to halve the recipe and just use water. But it turned out great still. Clear and concise directions. I will be making it again with milk soon.

    I've tried the recipe twice and neither time it came out okay. I'm so confused. The dough is tough, pulls apart like play-dough and did not rise. Can't figure out why

    Bread turned out fantastic. Did not change anything in the recipe. I could have pulled it out one minute before what they recommended in the recipe as the loaves were dark. Once I cut into though they were not over done, very tasty. Will make again!!
