The settings on bread machines bake the bread for a programmed amount of time; then signal when the cycle is over. I LOVE my machine!

I'd love to make this bread in the traditional fashion (don't have a bread machine), but the instructions don't say how long the bread is suppose to bake (just says "bake according to bread machine directions." How long is that?

Best bread ever. My daughter-in-law had to make it for me ,as I don't have a bread machine and there were no manual directions. It's especially good toasted and slathered with butter-(OK I know that's not healthy- but it's delicious!)

Digital scales are really cheap these days. Cups and teaspoons are inaccurate for the weighing of ingredients. It doesn't take too much more time to record the weight for a recipe. The results are so much better. Please do it. Thanks

Was just looking for a herbed bread recipe to make for supper, and this looked good - it was super good bread! I did add another tablespoon of milk after the first 5 minutes of mixing, and it came out beautiful. Smelled delicious while it was baking, too :)

I tried this recipe today. I changed it slightly. I used 100% whole wheat instead of white and 1/2 cup fresh green onions instead of the dried onion. I also added a little garlic powder. I had a little trouble with the wet/dry ratio on this recipe which I think is why the top flopped in a little (maybe a little too much yeast for how much flour). I ended up adding a LOT more milk than this recipe calls for and 1/2 cup less flour. The flavor of this bread is delicious. It would be awesome with cheese or anything tomato based. Mmmmm.
