active dry yeast
I like this recipe! I definitly would recommend it. BUT like everyone else said it calls for WAY to much yeast. I experimented, thinking maybe the extra yeast was called for because it was a rapid bake (the recipe doesn't specify a bread machine setting after all), but even in rapid back the full amount of yeast lifted my bread machine lid off. reducing the recipe by a whole tsp. is definitly necessary to get a better loaf, and I personally like how it cooks in your basic bread/white bread setting best.
very disappointed in the measurements given -- way too much yeast, overflowed, and created a mess. smells great though =]
This is a great white bread recipe! I added an extra tablespoon of sugar and changed the margarine to vegetable oil. It has a nice tang to it from the cottage cheese and I like the added protein. I will for sure put this on my favorites list!
I have had a bread machine for six years, and this is the best of any bread that I have made. It raised over the top, so I will have to calm it down the next time.
Very delicious bread! I made mine on the dough cycle and baked in the oven. I also used olive oil instead of margarine. I made 3 rolls and 1 loaf. I could easily have made 2 loaves as this was a very high riser.
This is an excellent recipe. I did sub in one cup of whole wheat flour for one cup of white. I also decreased the yeast to 1 1/2 tsp. This is a great recipe!!
This bread is wonderful! *I did not use a bread maker for this recipe.* I love that the cottage cheese adds moisture & protein to the bread. I have made this 2x and 1 of the times I followed it as is except for substituting 1c of whole wheat flour for all purpose flour. I didn't use bread flour either time i made it. When I used the wheat flour I kept the yeast at 2 1/4t & it worked perfect. It is a large loaf though. I have a larger loaf pan w/ straight sides & it worked perfect in this pan (not sure the exact dimensions). I will add a little more sugar I think next time. It's a little 'sour' from the cottage cheese. The other time I made the recipe (with all, all-purpose flour) I used 1 1/2t yeast & did add 1T more sugar & it turned out perfect. Though, again, I did use my large loaf pan, as it does make a large loaf. So......my suggestions would be to add about 1T more sugar & if you use all-purpose or bread flour you could probably cut the yeast to 1 1/2t. If you use some wheat flour (I suppose because it's more heavy??) I would use the recipe amt (2 1/4t) of yeast. A great recipe though. It's definitely in my mix of bread recipes.
Came out absolutely perfect. The only thing I changed was the amount of yeast. I changed it to 1-1/2 tsp. It rose at just the right height and was not dense at all. Thanks Dara
