  1. Dissolve yeast in 1 cup warm water. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and sugar. Add the yeast mixture and remaining water; stir until combined. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Stir dough down. Divide in half. Place each half in a greased 1-qt. round casserole or ovenproof bowl. Brush tops with butter and sprinkle with poppy seeds. Let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. Remove from pans; serve warm if desired.

How can you screw this one up? The bread is great, fast-rising, and no knead. The dough seems like it's so wet that it won't make, but it turns out with a good crust like an aged sourdough in ju...

Tried it twice. Thought I might have done something wrong. I followed the directions to the letter, and it turned out awful both times.

Very easy to make! I even messed up and put the melted margarine IN the bread instead of brushing it on the top. Mine only took 35 minutes to bake. This made two free form loaves, one round and ...

Another one of 'those' reviews since I modified the recipe so much that it's not even the same recipe! This was a HUGE HUGE hit and so easy that I had to review it, despite all my modifications...

This is a really, really easy yeast bread. I proofed the yeast with 1 teaspoon of the sugar. I let it rise for 1 hr. each rising. I didn't use the poppy seeds. The dough is so sticky it seems it...

This is wonderful! And so easy! Try topping it with a mixture of 3 Tbs melted butter, 2 Tbs grated cheese (I use a parmesan, romano, asiago mix made by Kraft), 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 ts...

It doesn't get any easier than this. I proofed my yeast then threw the rest of the ingredients into the bowl and let the mixer bring it all together. I got interrupted by the phone, so it actu...

Very easy bread to make, with great flavor. Definately not a sweet bread, has more of a salty flavor. Goes great with cheese and red wine. A good bread to accompany meats and pasta. Probably...

This is a great, simple recipe! I added a teaspoon each of a variety of Italian spices to the dough and sprinkled them over the top instead of using poppy seeds. Fabulous.

Great bread! The dough is very "wet" and I added about another 1/2 cup of flour before I read the other reviews commenting on this. Even with the extra flour the bread turned out tasty.
