Home-Style Yeast Bread Recipe

Everyone likes the tender texture and slightly sweet taste of this homemade bread. When I'm in the mood to bake, I usually double the recipe and share loaves with friends. The dough also makes lovely rolls. -Launa Shoemaker, Landrum, South Carolina

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 22, 2014

"The first time I made this bread, it was overly sweet and lacked saltiness. But I felt the recipe had potential, so I tweaked the recipe (making it 4 diffeent times) until my family felt it was perfect. I wanted to be cautious with adding more salt, because I knew that salt can work as an antagonist against yeast rising. My final recipe calls for 3 1/2 tsp salt, which I add at the very end, right before kneading. It is now the only white bread recipe I use!"

MY REVIEW

"I love this bread. It makes very moist loaves. Not sure why but this particular bread rises really fast. I substited honey for the sugar."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 3, 2013

"This made a wonderful loaf of bread! I used honey instead of sugar and substituted a couple cups of whole wheat flour instead of all bread flour and it was great. It stayed moist for days instead of drying out once you cut into it. Very nice!"
