  • “Excellent loaf.I used bread flour and when using bread flour, you need to reduce the yeast.My loaf over-flowith.It did get bigger than it was supposed to, but it was very good.Very easy, really does only take 5 minutes. 5 stars!”

  • “Made a loaf yesterday, its an easy recipe, I substituted 2 eggs for some of the water and got a nice high loaf”

  • “Excellent bread.I added some chopped jalapeno chilis.Try it!”

  • “This is a great recipe!!Loved the addition of onion soup mix!BF thought it was great – perfect for sopping up gravy!”

  • “Finally, a basic bread machine recipe that doesn’t use dry milk (or any at all, for that matter). I used bread flour and the full amount of yeast, and it came out great.This recipe should be marked vegetarian and vegan, btw (when made with vegetable shortening).”

  • “I tried this recipe because my husband likes soft bread. It is a winner. It makes a nice tender loaf with a crispy crust that’s not too thick. I made without the onion soup. “

  • “Very good bread recipe!I didn’t change a thing and we really loved this!I used the butter and I did not use the optional onion soup mix.Thanks!”

  • “I have to admit, when I read the ingredients list I thought “I don’t know, pretty skimpy” (no egg or milk powder, only 3 tsp sugar!) but I gave it a try and I’m glad I did!This is easy, economical and tasty.”

  • “This is a simple recipe that makes a really excellent loaf in my bread machine. It came out soft in the centre but wonderfully crusty on the outside. I made a loaf last night and I’ve just put another one on because I know the first one won’t last long.On a personal note, no milk powder so very easy to make this recipe vegan by using dairy free margerine.I haven’t tried the onion idea yet but I will.Thank you. I will be using this a lot I think.”

  • “Great recipe!!I used Becel margarine instead of the shortening or butter and I added in raisins and candied fruit.Not quite as good as my Grandma makes from scratch, but darn close :)Thanks for sharing!!”

  • “absolutely perfect!wanted to add that i used bread flour and light butter.”

  • “Perfect. My only goof up was that I used bread flour instead of all purpose, and dumped the whole packet of yeast in as well. I ended up with a very full bread machine. No big deal. It’s delicious!!”

  • “good white loaf. testing it on quik setting now, but reg worked great. didn’t use the onion soup mix.”

  • “So simple to prepare and so yummy to eat! I made this one because it didn’t call for dry milk and I omitted the soup mix. Very yummy”

  • “First recipe I made with my bread machine, it turned out delicious, really nice and airy, made a great midnight snack.”

  • “Very easy and turned out great!”

  • “I made my bread on the dough cycle then shaped it and placed it in a bread pan to rise till double in bulk(about 45 min.) I then baked it at 375 degrees for another 45 min. It was delicious. Thank you for posting the recipe. :)”

  • “This is good! I used the optional onion soup mix and ended up with a nice dense loaf of bread. Thanks. :)”

  • “I added the optional onion soup mix, and just used the dough function in my bread machine. Instead of a loaf of bread I shaped this dough into hamburger sized buns, let them rise and than baked them. After baking I split them, broiled to toast and added provolone cheese to melt. Used this for recipe#39466 and recipe#59772DELICIOUS!”

  • “Thank you my bread was wonderful…”
