Anytime is the right time for a comforting slice of homemade bread. These loaves are especially nice since the crust stays so tender. This recipe is my husband Nick's favorite. He makes most of the bread at our house. -Joanne Shew Chuk, St. Benedict, Saskatchewan

"This is by far the best basic white bread recipe I've used. I make it quite a bit, always turns out great."

"This recipe is one of the simplest, yet best recipes for home style bread I've made. My family enjoys it, we give it away and friends are so happy to get a nice warm loaf. This recipe usually makes 3 for us, as we've done it in two and the loaves are HUGE on top. So we do 2 loaves and cinnamon buns or 3 loaves. Enjoy!"

"Turned out great. I substituted warm milk for the water portion. It is sweet and a little doughy."

"I tried this recipe for the first time yesterday. It turned out wonderfully!! I halved the recipe and before putting the bread in the oven I misted the top with some water to improve the lift. This recipe is a keeper."

"I've made this bread several times now, it is a real winner! Recipe yields a tender, slightly chewy, lofty loaf. Keeps well, too."
