I absolutely LOVE this bread recipe. I found it a year ago and never used another one since. I personally like to take the bread out 5 minutes before and brush melted butter on the top and let it finish the lasr 5 minutes of cooking. Thanks for this wonderful bread recipe!
The only difference i did with the bread was to use Crisco shortening instead of the lard. The bread was ok, but it was TOO SALTY. One tablespoon of salt is just too much. I might try it again using maybe 1-1/2 tsps of salt. I will critique it again after i make it with the revised amount of salt.
This bread turned out wonderfully! Not too fluffy, but a nice, soft, tasty bread. I no longer buy my bread from the store, I use this instead! I substituted margarine for the lard, and it's still great! It doesn't get stale too quickly either!
I made rolls with this recipe instead of bread. It was a big hit at our Thanksgiving Dinner. Everyone raved about it.
This is absolutely terrific! The bread came out light and fluffy and very tasty. I did reduce the amount of salt - put in about 2 tsp instead of 1 Tbsp.
I liked this way more than the 'popular' white bread on this same site. This is what homemade bread should taste like.
I cut this recipe in half and let my bread machine to the work thru the 2nd rise. Then took it out and formed dinner rolls for tonight's dinner. Excellent recipe. Just bake dinner rolls for 20 minutes at 375 degrees!Thanks Danialle.
If you have never made bread in your life before, this is the recipe for you; very easy and bread turns out fantastic. This will be a new "family recipe" for our family. thanks for posting it!!
Good bread with a lot of substance. It would be great to use this with homegrown tomatoes as it will hold up nicely. I used my kitchen aid with the dough hook & it was a breeze to make, a keeper for me. Thanks Danialle!
