Makes good bread and wonderful toast! Had a bit of trouble with the recipe, because the first part instructs you to put milk, yeast and some flour to rise, but then it doesn't specifically tell you to mix it in with the big bowl of flour. My dough was almost too much for a 9" round pan. The flavor is really good, and it makes some of the best toast I've ever had! It's close to my grandmother's recipe, which I've been trying to replicate for several years.

I had to let this rise for at least an hour and a half in order for it to double in size. 30 minutes was not long enough as indicated in your recipe. I baked the loaf in a 9 X 9 in. pan for 40 minutes. This pan size is questionable as the bread did rise quite a bit during the baking period. I was afraid it would fall over. An 8 X 8 pan would have caused this bread to end up on my oven floor. It was a beautiful dark golden brown color when I removed it from my oven. Later the middle sank. The middle of the loaf was doughy. The flavor of this bread was nothing to write home about. We didn't think this bread was sweet or flavorful enough. The texture was interesting. It is between a cake and a bread. I would not recommend anyone to try this recipe until you perfected the instructions. I am giving this a one star since you need to tweek this recipe.

great sweet taste. also, really convenient b/c you don't have to knead it. the texture leaves a little to be desired, but the taste makes up for it. the only problem is that this needs to be in a 9x13 cake pan. the 8x8 is entirely too small.

This is a nice lightly sweet bread. Agree with others.. use 13X9 pan or be prepared for a mess in your oven. The texture is between a pound cake and a bread.. everyone enjoyed this
