This is a great bread. I bake approx. 30 loafs of bread a week for local farmers market. And this is a favorite. I think it's a really soft, moist bread. I've been baking it for 2 years now and this is one recipe that I find unreplaceable.
Thank you Kathleen for such a wonderful bread recipe.
I tried making this and followed the recipe exactly but the dough refused to form-I ended up throwing it all out-
I love it! It makes wonderful sandwich bread. (It's not sweet.) I am a novice baker, and the dough has risen for me both times (i'm making it right now w/ 2c wheat flour). It's such a great recipe, I would definitely recommend trying it! If the yeast is good and the water is only slightly warmer than wrist-temp, it should work. Good luck!
This bread is fabulous. I have made it by hand several times, and every time it comes out picture perfect. The recipe calls says 375F but doesn't give a time. If you want a dark brown crust (see the pic I've uploaded for this recipe), that was for 30 minutes at 375. This last time I took it out at 26 minutes and it was not quite as dark brown (of course). Regardless of 24-30 min baking time, the inside is sweet, tasty and just outright delicious. Made this last week for Christmas, served with butter and Crock Pot apple butter and it was flat out off the chart. Fantastic recipe.
This is a very simple, easy-to-follow recipe. The bread is dense and not suitable for regular sandwiches, but is lovely along side saucy dishes and soups.
This is my favorite bread recipe.
Unlike some other reviewers, my bread rose nice and tall. In fact, therefore, the resulting bread turned out to be a little softer, a little fluffier, than the denser bread I prefer. But since this was intended tp be a basic, white sandwich bread for Hubs, it was just what I needed. I feel good knowing there's a little extra nutrition in the bread because of the buttermilk, but tastebuds can't detect it. I prepared the dough in my bread machine, then proceeded with the remainder of the recipe as directed.
Very tasty bread, makes yummy french toast. Sometimes I add a bit more sugar.
