"Not my favorite. The crust was hard and difficult to slice through, even though I added the extra water and used a medium crust setting. It seemed overly sweet with both sugar and honey, too."

"This is the BEST bread machine recipe! I double the honey to 4 Tbsp. Anyone who has ever eaten this bread at my house has commented on how tasty and moist it is!

"We've been making this bread for years. It's our "go to" bread machine recipe. We usually use 2.5 c white and 1 c wheat flour. Delicious!!"

"I have loved and had great results from this recipe for years. I have converted it to half white whole wheat with the addition of a little baker's dry milk and it works fabulously. This is one of those standbys that everyone loves. Great texture and flavor, makes great rolls too."
