    This bread was so good my picky kids had seconds! The crust was crisp and chewy, and the bread was light and fluffy-- one of the best bread machine recipes I've come across. My dough was a little dry, so I ended up adding more water-- about 2 tbsp. - 1/21/13

    This bread was very tasty, crisp on the outside, and tender inside. It didn't rise very well, though. Still, we all enjoyed it, and it went well with my homemade chicken noodle soup. Thanks! - 11/8/08
