"I've made this bread several times now and it consistently makes a delicious, soft, tender loaf of bread. I've also started making this through the dough cycle and then using it for cinnamon rolls and it works perfectly for those, too."

"This recipe makes an excellent loaf of bread in my bread machine. I have also experimented with adding eggs to the recipe and got great results. To make this with eggs, replace the water and vegetable oil with three large eggs plus enough water to make 1½ cups total liquid. Whisk the eggs and water together with the sugar and salt and warm the liquid up in the microwave to between 105°F and 115°F. Put the warmed liquid in the bread machine pan and add the potato flakes, flour and yeast as directed.

This recipe makes a very soft bread which rises to pretty much fill my 2-pound capacity machine."
