    Beautiful! Turned out lovely and soft, tasted amazing (especially with raspberry jam and butter), the whole family loved it! 10/10 definitely making it again. On a side note, the recipe called for 1 tablespoon of salt, which seems ridiculous. I only added a teaspoon which I think was a good choice.

    I had a great time making this! First bread experience... So my product may not have been as intended 😂. I had never used yeast before (for those wondering, Just add the two packets of yeast to 1/2 cup of 100° water. Let it sit for about 10 minutes. Don't do it I did and leave it in a one cup measuring cup-put it in a large bowl because it will grow a lot!! Mine overflowed all over the place but I was able to save it 😊) I put the loaves of freshly roll dough onto a pan and let it sit for a while (I wasn't quite ready to bake them yet.) they grew to an enormous size! I had smushed all six of the half loaves onto one pan, and they expanded! I'm definitely a yeast newbie! Anyway, I baked them and they were pretty tasty. I was expecting a little more: they looked beautiful but the taste just didn't have it for me. Lastly, I left the loaves out overnight (oops!) and they went stale... :/ oh well! It was okay while it lasted! 💞recommend for a first bread recipe!

    Too salty. It is a simple recipe to make. I suggest anyone to give it a try if you are a beginner in the kitchen. I did not make any changes to the recipe. I would not make it again. My family liked it.
