MY REVIEW

"This was a first attempt at making bread for me and I was very pleased with the easy recipe (and with myself LOL). I was watching my grandchildren as the bread rose so oops, the first rise was for 1-? hours (inside a slightly warm oven). I didn't butter the top of the dough or sprinkle it with seeds - again because of my grandchildren. I used extra butter to grease the two pans and got a good buttery taste that way. My second rise was on the stove top and only took 30 minutes. I will try this again."
