Reviews forMini White Breads
"Wow, what a great, easy recipe. Excellent results using my Kitchen Aid mixer. Baked up perfect. Nice crust with no fuss!"
"Neither my mother nor I liked this at all. I followed the recipe completely and it was too dry and looked nothing like the picture. What a waste of ingredients.."
"This recipe is great to make for single people. I give the second loaf to my elderly mother who absolutely loves it."
"We're not big bread eaters in our house, so these small loaves are perfect for us on the rare occasions we do have bread with our meal. Like the small loaves served at restaurants, one loaf is just enough for one meal and we don't have a big loaf of bread left over. The recipe is easy to make and the bread freezes well if you don't use both loaves right away."
