I've used this bread recipe MANY times and its perfect! I found it on a cooking site. It was posted by a cook known as Pleclare. As you can see in my photo, this recipe makes 2 loaves. Most times I add toasted sesame seeds ontop, but that time I didn't. This bread is best when baked til dark golden brown. It tastes just like the bread I get from my favorite bakery!
