side-by-side and remained culinary collaborators, to
their family's benefit, all their lives. Deb's notes:
these are an old family favorite and they're quite
flexible. It's pretty hard to mess 'em up. They work
as well for breakfast with jam or honey as they do
with with dinner. Sometimes I substitute whole wheat
flour for up to half the bread flour called for.
I've successfully halved the recipe (3 cups bread
1 pkg yeast or about 1-1/2 ts bulk
Hitachi ABM--BUT, BUT, BUT--I
add the full
amount of water at once. Rather, I start out with
about 7/8 cup and then dribble enough add'l water into the bread pan during the early stages of the knead
cycle 'til the dough "looks right". --
