    This bread turned out amazing tastes awesome such an easy way to make good bread I’m so happy thankyou !

  2. Love the idea of not having to feed the yeast sugar to activate it and for it to grow ( have it go into frothy bubbles)

  3. Is this being done in a 6.5 l sc or bigger?
    Would instant yeast work ok or should I use yeast that needs time to bloom? (I have both but not sure if one of those is ‘granulated yeast’ per recipe.

    Many thanks for your help.

    When I see the answers I will try this and add a rating here

  4. Success on the second attempt!! Re-reading the recipe directions and ingredients list was a good idea.A nice light bread was the result. Quite chuffed with it.

  5. Super yummy and so easy to make, takes less than five minutes to mix ingredients. The kids are always begging me to whip a loaf up

  6. Love this recipe and have now done it several times. I got my best ever result today….I forgot to allow time for the dough to rise but kept going and got my lightest/fluffiest result? I left out the salt and used 1 tsp of garlic salt, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 heaped tsp of turmeric and a shake of chopped chives . Perfect accompaniment for soup !!
