This is a really great loaf bread; perfect for sandwiches, heavenly as toast, great for grilled sandwiches, and just right when you simply want a fresh slice to hold some honey or butter.
It doesn't need any changes - you can make it just as directed and it will come out perfectly every time. If you want a variation, however, it is perfectly amenable to tinkering. I frequently add oat bran, diastatic malt, and/or sunflower seeds. I often change the bread flour to a mix of plain and whole wheat flour (although when I do this, I add a tablespoon of wheat gluten to the mix, and increase the yeast quantity to 2 1/2 tsp.) For a sweeter version, I simply increase the honey and add a handful of currents.
I bake almost all the breads my family eats; traditional, artisan, flat breads, rolls, braids, you name it. That being said, this is the best "everyday" loaf recipe I've come across, and I thank Donna Beth for sharing it.
