"Turned out great :-)"
"I just made this bread and it turned out marvelous! However, I feel like it has some important steps left out that you need to know if you're not an experienced bread Baker. First of all - to activate your yeast - you need to put the warm water and yeast and sugar alone in your bowl. Stir it well, cover it, and set it aside when it's frothy looking - those foamy looking bubbles mean the yeast is ready to go. THEN add all the other ingredients. Otherwise it's a great basic recipe. Make sure to work the dough long enough - I do half with a dough hook and my KitchenAid and half by hand on a flour dusted counter. It needs to feel really smooth and stretchy. Good luck! It tastes delicious and a perfect texture!"
"Literally the worst bread I have ever made. I can't believe it got so many positive reviews. I made this twice. The first time I thought it was my oven that had ruined it, or maybe the yeast wasn't good enough. However the second time through I had the right ingredients, fixed the oven and I had the worst results. It is best to try another recipe."
"I have made this twice and after the first rise don't knead the dough. It makes it VERY dense. On my second bake It was half as dense, but it was still dense. If you don't knead it enough before the first rise the glutton won't build enough to become light and fluffy."
"Worked out great"
"Surely something was left out of this recipe. Followed recipe exactly and it was terrible!! Don't know how it got any stars. Wasted ingredients"
"Love this simple recipe This is my 1st time baking white bread at home. I have baked spelt flour recipes a couple of times and came out good. Love the taste, Instead of adding only all purpose flour I added 3-1/2 cups all purpose and the rest spelt flour, also added a tblspoon of flax seed powder. I have never loved white bread like this before. Next time I will definitely use all ... all purpose flour :). I am a beginner in bread baking, this recipe really made me confident abt my bread baking skills. Thank you."
"I've made this bread several times already! The first time was good, and has only gotten better each time! I concur with Ryan below about using bread flour (I used King Arthur), but I use my wife's beloved Kitchenaid stand mixer which more than meets and exceeds the challenge of kneading. I also divide the dough into thirds (and can even go for four small loaves), and it does keep for a few days, IF it lasts that long! :-D The final bread product, when made with bread flour, is a good crumb, nice chew and wonderfully crispy, yet soft, crust.A WONDERFUL beginner's recipe! I'll experiment with adding herbs and other flavors to this dough!"
