"This bread is so good!!! The bread was nice and soft and tasted great. This is the first time I have used a bread machine and this came out perfectly. I set it for a 2 lb loaf with light crust. It made wonderful french toast for breakfast. So yummy. Will be making this one again. Thanks for sharing!"

"So good!!!! It was pretty much foolproof. I followed the exact recipe and it was delicious. The texture is excellent because it is soft enough to be yummy but tough enough to hold up in a sandwich. This is going to become a staple."

"I am just now playing around with a bread machine, someone brought theirs into work, this recipe is a keeper, I did however substitute melted butter for the oil and honey for the sugar, like I said just playing with recipes.. but this is very good, great smell, good texture.. Thanks!"

"Yes, this is a great recipe. It turned out the best I've had since my mom made bread during my childhood. I used milk instead of water the second time I made it, brown sugar and three teaspoons of yeast. Just tweaked it a bit but it turned out very good."

"I had just copied this "just in case" someone needed it. I have several bread machines so I am sure I will never need it.  So here you go:

Adapting a bread Machine Recipe to a Manual Recipe
Go ahead and use the bread machine recipe to make a loaf by hand. Just be sure to keep a comparable non-machine recipe close by, and refer to it for basic instructions. If you don't have a comparable non-machine recipe to refer to, you may want to refer to these basic steps to making most yeast breads: Proof the yeast (dissolve the yeast and 1 tablespoon of sugar in warm water). Combine the ingredients and mix well. Knead the dough until smooth and soft. Rise until doubled. Punch down, and shape. Place bread in a greased loaf pan, or on a baking sheet for a round loaf. Rise again until nearly doubled. bake. Most bread is baked in a moderate oven, 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the bottom of a loaf sounds hollow when tapped. As you work with the dough, be sure to pay close attention to its consistency, and adjust the recipe as needed, adding small amounts of flour or liquid at a time.
Sorry I don't know how to make the print larger. Sorry."
