This was fantastic!!! Ok, I didn't use the egg powder (it grosses me out) and I used 1 pkg. of rapid yeast. They are so light and with a perfect texture. I shaped them into 6 large rolls and they're the perfect size for sandwiches.Also, I cover them with a dish towle after they come out of the oven to keep the crust soft. I'm makeing another batch for tonights BBQ and shaping them into hot dog and hamburger rolls. I just added more oil, water and flour to the recipe but not more yeast. We'll see how they come out.


Finally! I did it! I made a whole wheat bread that came out correctly. Thanks to the poster of this recipe. I didn't use my breadmaker as it's broken, so I kneaded it in my Kitchenaid Mixer w/the kneading attachment. First for 8 minutes, let rise for 50mins, then knead again for 8 minutes and let rise for 30mins, then cut and shape into 3 pieces and let rise again with a wet towel for 20mins. Stuck it into a preheated 375 oven for 20 minutes. Voila!! Perfect small baguettes for lunch.


Very easy to make, but it made a really small loaf of bread. Definitely excellent for those on a diet. Tasted great!
