This recipe came out great. SO much better than the bread machine recipe for white bread. I wonder if the person who commented named Jason, used bread white flour or regular flour? We used the bread flour, and it made the perfect loaf of soft non-dense bread. Thanks for the recipe.

Not very helpful, and most comments seemed extremely generic and in fact 3 were the sameas I have seen on other sites. The exact same. Also this recipe turned out doughy and heavy just like the rest. Also noone answered dave: comment 29. It seems his review is the same as mine. Is it just our machines? I use a black and decker 1.5 on basic setting and it doesnt turn out anything close to store bread. Sorry but help please.
CDKitchen Staff Reply: This recipe is only on CDKitchen so I'm not sure how you'd see the same comments posted elsewhere. The problem may be your bread machine or the ingredients used. Baking recipes often need to be tweaked to work properly depending where you live. Are you in a high altitude? Also, flour varies from region to region in the US depending on where it was produced so the hardness of it could be different with the brand you are using. You said that this recipe turns out "doughy and heavy just like the rest" which implies that you've had trouble making other bread recipes in your machine. Have you tried making the recipes that came with the instruction booklet? If even they don't turn out, then my guess is that your machine is at fault.

I am so excited to make this recipe, I am making it now. It looks good and the reviews are good. I will have to let you know, it seems most bread machine recipes are tasty, but, to heavy and harden very fast..looking forward to this new recipe, thank you.

This recipe convinced me not throw away my bread machine. I ate myself sick. I blame you.

Great tasting bread. Some bread machine recipes yield a very dense loaf. This one was light and moist.

How many servings or slices does this make? Can't calculate calories per slice if I don't know how many slices to cut the load into!

Guest Foodie REVIEW:
This is my favorite, foolproof, bread machine bread recipe. Never fails and turns out perfect every time. I make it at least once a week because it gets eaten up so fast in my house.

A fantastic recipe and a fantastic result. Excellent white bread. A little bit, a little less salt, 1 1/3 tespoon, but at mixing a little flour. Played perfectly. The taste super. Thank you.

tiannasgamma COMMENT: The first time I made this bread it was heavy and not very good. This time I added more yeast and used the sandwich setting on my bread machine. The bread was delicious and nice and light. We loved it.
