  • “I’d never made a bread with these ingredients before so I was a little worried. It came out really well though and was soft and tasty. A nice change from the usual.”

  • “YUMMY YUMMY BREAD!!!Like a lot of others i also had used dill weed instead of seeds, as i had made a dill bread previously and the seeds were NOT for me.Also, i didnt have any sour cream but did have plain ole yogurt. Seemed to have worked just fine!! No one had previously noted on which pound setting for loaves on the bread machine. Tonight i used the 2lb, and it cooked perfectly and was just beautiful!! Ohhh, also the bread machine i have usually likes liquids first followed by the dry seasonings and smaller dry goods, then flour and lastly the yeast on top. OH, sorry, but one of the reviewers said she wasn’t sure how much yeast to use… if you look on the back of the yeast jar it says 2 1/4tsp for 1/4oz pkg. and so on. Thanks a TON for an awesome recipe!!!”

  • “This is one of my husband’s favorite breads. I’ve been making this bread for about 15 years now, and it always comes out wonderfully. It is great toasted with butter and makes yummy ham as well as toasted cheese sandwiches. Besides the taste, my favorite thing about this bread is the aroma while both preparing as well as cooking.”

  • “The bread had great flavor but I used too much bread machine yeast which made it too large.I estimated how much yeast to use based on other recipes.”

  • “Wow! This really was good.The consistency came out great.I too was concerned about some of the ingredients in it, but it made it delicious.I followed the recipe exactly as it said and I had a huge loaf in my bread machine.Thanks for posting”

  • “Wow!I was sceptical, but it turned out great! I used 2 and 1/4 Tbl. bread machine yeast, and for the flour I used 2 C. all-purpose, and 1 and 1/3 C. bread machine flour. I heated the “wet” ingredients 10 seconds at a time in the microwave until it was warm, and I used dried dill weed instead of dill seeds.Yum!”

  • “Excellent texture and very good tasting bread.I didn’t have any dill seeds on hand so I substituted dill weed.It turned out wonderful.”
