    This is a great recipe! I wasn't so sure at first, but the next day it was even better. It is great with a little butter on each slice. Yum! I'll make this again.  -  28 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is delicious! Very moist, and even better the next day warm with butter on it. It is easy to make, does take a little time, as do all yeast breads, but worth it. I get a lot of requests for it, and for the recipe. Also, instead of the potato flakes and boiling water, if you have a cup of left over mashed potatoes, that works well too. Instead of mixing the mashed potato flakes with the water, I add the water with the wet ingredients, and the flakes with the dry. It works well that way.  -  30 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Sorry, but a 5 star means make it for company and make it frequently for the family. This recipe was just sweet bread with sugar on top. Basic homemade buttermilk bread would be an equally good gift, and makes a great morning treat toasted with cinnamon suger. If you want sweet, make a coffee CAKE. If you want bread, make bread. This is good, but not a show stopper.  -  11 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
