    My Breadman machine has a "batter breads" cycle...which means you can use this recipe without premixing ingredients...the whole cycle is 1 hour 40 minutes and does the mixing and baking. I only bake with butter, and this bread was so yummy, I may have eaten half of it myself!!! Great recipe and so much more moist than conventional loaf-pan baking.  -  02 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Yum! I substituted 1/2 cup of applesauce in place of the margarine to cut down the fat content & it still turned out great. My husband & I have already polished off one loaf & I made a fresh one today. Very good, very easy.  -  29 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent recipe. Used a Welbilt (ABMY2K1) with Quick cycle that consists of a 3 minute Knead1, a 5 minute rest, a 5 minute Knead2, and a 90 minute bake. Did not have to pre-mix, just dumped in all of the ingredients. The bread cooked thoroughly and was delicious.  -  04 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
