"Easy to make into 2 loaves of bread. I used a bread machine to make the dough and added about 4 1/2-5 cups of flour total to get the dough to the right consistency. Great for sandwich bread as it slices nicely and is soft."

"This is my family's favorite bread recipe. I've made it in loaf pans but think it turns out better in the round baking dish."
