I've tried other bread recipes, but this one is a staple in our home. I won $50 in a bake-off with a loaf that I had stored in the freezer. —Mickey Turner, Grants Pass, Oregon

My Mom and I both love this recipe and have made it often. I sometimes increase the bread flour to make it a little taller, but the flavor of this bread is amazing, a #1 for me.
