Great! Things never turn out, for me, like the pictures. But, this was easy enough even I was able to make it look, and taste, very good!

Good soft yummy bread it didn’t have that overly yeasty taste that homemade bread often has. It’s still good though

Ok. I let it rest to long so it was too dense

This a REALLY great bread recipe- I've made it several times, all with great results. Very simple procedure, rises so high, all around A+

I've been searching for a good bread recipe for a while now. After several different variations, this one got the best results. This is a simple recipe for even the most novice baker.

I love this bread and so does my family! It is so easy to make and my 8 year old loves helping. just had to add a bit more salt for my taste.
Don W. 16 Dec 2016
Great!!! Easy, clear instructions. Never made bread??? Here is a great place to start!!! I cut the butter by 1/3...still perfect!

This was the best bread that I've ever made. The crust was perfect for sandwiches. I used to use a bread machine but now with my kitchenmaid I love making by hand so I can shape the loaves (yes more than one) at a time.

I make this bread every week. Addictive straight out of the oven. Once cooled, it slices well for sandwiches, but the loaf gets a bit dry after 2 days. I sometimes make it in a food processor. Either way, the dough is easy to work with for a lightly experienced baker.

Came out great. Recipe is easy and very detailed! I took it out at 30 mins because the top looked decently done (I have a fear of overcoming the bread), but next time I will pull it a couple minutes later. Very good stuff!
Mrs Wesley 19 Sep 2016
This was an easy recipe to follow, but unfortunately the taste was ok, and the top was a little tough.
martha s. 16 Sep 2016
I made this recipe and the bread great. It's the best bread recipe I've ever tried. My husband loved the bread and urged me to make more often.
Petra Diefenbach 26 May 2016
Bread turned out perfect. Didn't realize my yeast had expired and causing my bread to have an insufficient rise. The only change I made is that I used bread flour.

I've never made bread before and it turned out delicious! I made a double batch and used the second half for cinnamon buns and fried bread dough( we always called them dough gods). I followed the recipe exactly and the bread turned out light, chewy and tasted so yummy. Definitely a keeper.

I think the time taken to make this bread from the moment the first ingredient was added to the moment it comes out of the oven was longer than I expected. Took wayyyyyyyy longer than it said it would but for an 18 year old making bread, I had such an amazing time and I would not change anything about it and I would do it again. It was pretty simple and pretty nice and soft and delish, Just like my Granny's.
