Golden Bread

My son, Kendall, like working right by my side in the kitchen. For this recipe, he helps me measure and add all the ingredients. Then we let the machine do the work. Kendall likes watching it knead the dough. He's happy to share the tasty loaf with his older sister.—Kendall Hatten, Devils Lake, North Dakota

    I have been making this bread for years and was surprised to see no reviews left. This one is a gem! Makes a tasty golden loaf that is moist and dense. It's a beautiful sandwich bread. I often make for dinner and served warm, it is a perfect versatile compliment to many a meal. My son loves it for toast the next day. I make with my mixer not a bread machine, so don't let the machine instructions deter you from trying this lovely bread. It is a family favorite.

    This is my stand-by breadmaker bread. It comes out great every time. Tonight I forgot to buy cottage cheese and I'm sweating it out b/c I have to use a different recipe for dinner. I use 2 egg whites instead of an egg, b/c my friend's daughter is allergic to the yolks. It still turns out wonderful and not a crumb left.
