Vienna Bread

This makes a lovely, fine grained loaf. Good texture and toasts well.
I usually make my bread machine loaves on the dough cycle and then finish the baking in the oven. I like the shape better and it is easier to slice. I also Iike to make smaller loaves so I can freeze one or give it to a friend. Also, you could shape the dough into dinner rolls.
