"This moist, slightly sweet bread is one of my favorites to prepare in my bread machine," says Jenet Cattar of Neptune Beach, Florida. Jenet's recipe produces a smaller loaf, which is especially nice for households with one or two people.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 12, 2013

We loved this bread-it's so nice and soft...perfectly wonderful warm from the oven or toasted for breakfast. I used part-skim ricotta, instant yeast and made it by hand rather than using a bread machine. It makes (1) 8x4-inch loaf of bread. Since it makes a pretty small loaf, I think I'll double the ingredients to make a larger loaf and either a mini loaf or dinner rolls the next time I make it-and yes, there definitely will be a next time.

Thank you, Jenet for this wonderful recipe!

This is wonderful bread. Makes great toast. Good with turkey sandwiches. I think I am going to make it again and try a little wheat flour as this is so moist, I think it can take it. Not sure it it matters what fat content the ricotta is though. Guess I will get to experiment! Yum!!

This was good and I may make it again. It was nice to take a break from making bread the regular way.
