Reviews for Buttermilk Bread
"I brush the top crust with butter then wrap the loaf in foil to keep it warm until meal time. I always seem to have a little bit of buttermilk leftover from other recipes and this was great to use that up. I'd definitely make this one again, maybe even just using the dough setting and then forming it and baking it in the oven."
"How long would I knead this dough and at what temperature and how long would it bake? Sound like a good one to me. grammaberr"
"In the directions for Buttermilk bread, do you think you meant to type "Select basic bread setting" instead of basil bread setting? Might be a novice out there that can't make the recipe because they don't have this unusual setting."
