        Here is a picture of this bread mix I made last night. It turned out looking pretty good, however, we have not tried it yet. After breakfast I'll let you know how it taste.

        This bread just got rated a 9 at our house. The kids said the only reason they didn't rate it a 10 is because it doesn't contain cheese or chocolate. I think it taste better than store bought, and any of the recipes that came with my bread maker!!! The bread didn't fall apart when you put jelly on it.

        This sounds great! I am going to make it now. Can you tell me how many loaves this recipe makes. Is it for just one of the machine pans or do I need to break it down?

      I like to use parchment paper for all my baking. It's not a necessity, but it helps keep the baking sheets newer and keep from getting oil build up.
