"Today I made bread again using this recipe. I used by mixer with paddle and dough hook since I am unable to mix or knead by hand. This has turned out to be my favorite as the bread is absolutely delicious and does freeze well using heavy duty tin foil. "- sunnygal

sunnygal 10 months agoTurned out Great!! Bread was soft, well-textured with a thin soft crust, just as I like it. Makes two. good-sized loaves. Put one in freezer for later.
