I love that it's a no knead bread. It came together super fast, but I do think I went about 1/4c too much flour at the end. I still was happy with the texture inside and the crust. I did omit the honey butter that was listed with the original recipe. Leftovers were great as is, but also made amazing toast with a little homemade jam. It held well for several days wrapped tightly.

Havent made this bread for years.It's even better than I remembered.Toasted with marmalade is my favourite.Slice and put in freezer. Excellent!This recipe is superb!! You have to try it!Only thing I did different was adding a couple of tblspoons of my sourdough.I sometimes add lemon rind and juice of half a lemon.

Can I substitute bread flour for all purpose flour?

I'm going to make this today. I'll substitute the dry yeast (don't have any) with fresh active yeast. Hope it turns out well...

Very tasty! Mine started browning way too fast, so I just covered it with aluminum foil. Thanks for sharing!!

I have been making this family favorite for years. It is easy and delicious, makes fantastic toast. I prefer to bake it in two loaf pans so that it is easier to slice.

I was worried as my first rise wasn't very pronounced, but I went ahead with it and gave it additional time on the 2nd. It baked quickly and tastes great. flaky crusty. Great with regular butter. I'd definitely try again and use fresher yeast just in case that was my problem!

Pretty good bread. With it being a slightly sweet bread, we liked it better with regular butter more than the honey butter.
