Well, this bread was ok in my book. It was very easy to make, looked and smelled great but it was lacking in flavor. It really just tasted like flour, not bad all in all but I'll keep looking.


Thank you for this very simple, yet tasty recipe. I chose it from all the others mainly because of one thing... only one tablespoon of sugar! Not that I couldn't stand to gain some weight, but my own recipe book had that at 1/3 cup. Nope, way too much for a loaf of bread. For the vegetable oil, I used olive oil, so for those wondering, yes, that oil will work just fine. This was my first homemade loaf of bread (on my own, anyway) and it was very easy. I'm totally off store-bought now!
