Ready in 1 hour

This recipe is from the series "My Great Recipes". First bread recipe I ever tried. :-)

"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. "

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.

Turned 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.
